Single Time Machine Backups

Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.

ClamXav 2.2

Send Article to a Friend

Mark Allan has released version 2.2 of the malware-protection ClamXav app based on the open source ClamAV antivirus engine. According to the release notes, ClamXav 2.2 introduces support for OS X Lion and fixes miscellaneous unspecified bugs. The underlying ClamAV virus-detection engine has also been upgraded to version 0.97.1, and the author has added a direct link to the software’s online documentation, along with adding Command-click on Ignore Warning as a better way to dismiss multiple warnings. ClamXav is free, though donations are requested. (Free, 13 MB)

Has anyone found that ClamXav 2.2 quarantines many, many more files than its predecessor? It used to be that one or two files would be quarantined every six weeks or so, but now I'm running a scan and hundreds of files (old and new, it seems) are being quarantined. I'm surprised ... and confused.
