The Take Control updates keep coming, and this week's installment, the 1.1 version of "Take Control of Mac OS X Backups" is a particularly useful update that's well worth the free download for existing customers and makes the $10 price even more worthwhile for those who still need to establish a solid backup strategy.

"Take Control of Mac OS X Backups" Updated to 1.1 -- The 1.1 update to Joe Kissell's ebook about Mac OS X Backups makes it even easier than before to figure out how to set up a personalized, sensible backup system that works. In particular, the update adds a page-long table that gives at-a-glance comparisons of different backup strategies (low-cost, easy, most effective), and makes specific recommendations for each strategy. Beyond that, readers will find more details about Retrospect and RsyncX, and improved coverage of topics including Internet backup services, optical media and newer SuperDrive formats, along with new utilities that promise to partition disks without requiring reformatting. Overall, the ebook has grown by 8 pages, to 103 pages. If you already own the 1.0 version, click the Check for Updates button on the first page to download your free update. [ACE]
