Software developer app4mac announced the release of Twin 1.0, the company’s online data backup system. According to Mac Observer, the Twin application supports backing up data to local drives as well as online locations via several file transfer protocols.
The application is currently built on the code base for Persistence and supports FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and MobileMe protocols, along with AES-256 encryption and bz2 compression. It preserves Finder information, ACLs, privileges and resource forks, and lets users schedule backup times, set which files to include, and more.
Twin 1.0 will be priced at €29 (about US$38.38) when the final version is available on May 14 and Persistence owners will receive a free copy of Twin. The beta application is available for download at the app4mac Web site.
Final system specifications for the application have yet to be released.
