At the time it was and still is one of the best Mac OS 9 backup utilities around, because of its versatility, speed and reliability. With Personal Backup, you can set one or several tasks that either backup or synchronize your data and set a schedule to run hourly, daily, when you shut down your Mac and can even retain several copies of the data. Backing up automatically, let's say every hour, and retain old copies of data Sounds like Time Machine to me! Indeed, it is exactly like that, without the fancy animations you have in Time Machine these days, of course.
Clone the whole system daily, synchronize select folders and backup folders with often changing contents while retaining as many copies as you want.

Personal Backup will let you do it. You'll have a hard time finding this on the Intego website these days, but we dug up a copy and made it available right here. Mac OS 9 does not multitask like OS X does, so running a backup utility or antivirus scan will tie up your system pretty good while it's running, hence the recommendation to run these kinds of intensive tasks while you're away from the keyboard. As with the previously mentioned utilities, Personal Backup runs very light, taking up just 1. If you compare the above resource usage screenshot with the ones from VirusBarrier and NetBarrier, you'll notice a difference in color scheme and Mac OS resource usage.
This is because I had to re-take some screenshots on another computer. Just now, my PowerBook G3 that I was using up until this point decided to stop powering up!
I was able to boot up a PowerMac G4 from the clone made by Personal Backup, copy the whole Mac OS 9 system back and continue work in less than 12 minutes. The fact that this happened while I was writing this article cannot be a coincidence, so I had to share this.
For those not familiar with Mac OS 9, I keep mentioning the amount of memory these apps use, because back in the day and still today, depending on the hardware that's used memory was measured in MB's, not GB's. That is assuming the memory was upgraded; in its default configurations, some of those machines had just 32 or 64 MB of memory!
With such little resources available, every megabyte counts. Intego no longer supports its legacy products for Mac OS 9, so use at your own risk. Grabbing a new hard drive for your OS 9 computer falls under data security. Amazingly, most of these old Macs still use the original hard drive. The higher capacity drives offered in the G4's were faster at rpm, but could still be pretty noisy. These drives, however, worked and kept working, and kept working, and Maxtor drives became questionable after they hit the GB capacity mark, but other brands were amazing.
Mac OS 9 did not have S. Making the general assumption you're using a G4 of some kind, this still leaves you with a 14 to 18 year old hard drive that is certainly due for an upgrade. A new 'old' drive can be picked up on amazon for a few bucks and will give you some peace of mind. If you want some better performance, you can even go Solid State! As with any system, keeping your operating system OS and software up to date will ensure you have the latest enhancements and security fixes. Unfortunately but not surprisingly, there are no more software updates for Mac OS 9 or any of the software that runs on that OS.
However, there are a few important updates that should be installed. With the OS and its components no longer being updated, some of the built-in features can simply be too risky to have enabled. We don't know how or if these can easily be exploited these days, so it's better to be safe than sorry.
Also use the Extension Manager to disable any control panels and extensions you don't need, this will make your OS boot faster and run with a bit more resources available. If you read this article and are curious to try Mac OS 9, or even if you've been using Mac OS 9 for a while, there are some great resources available online.maisonducalvet.com/ligar-mujeres-almorad.php

I will wrap this up by sharing some links to useful websites and some must-have Mac OS 9 software. Writing is something I love to use Mac OS 9 for. No notifications, no emails, no messengers or other distractions, just writing. Of course, my rather large collection of games for Mac OS 9 are a big reason for keeping it around, too. I still use OS 9 every day for audio production. Great read, thanks! I still have a OS 9 machine, but mostly for nostalgic reasons.
Reading this will make me start it up again today! Yo, I use two Mhz Macs with 9. And for anything else I can that is best done in OS 9. Thank you! That makes a lot of difference. Even if the machine takes some time for processing some file as image processing or audio editors memory based programs-best ones the results worths the time.

Follow IntegoSecurity. Thanks for the advice on the disk image. No formula found for "afpfs-ng-OSX".
No formula found for "afpfs". No formula found for "afp". Posted: Fri Nov 03, am. Thanks for your credit, but I'm not a developer or programmer at all. First time I do something like this.

No clue how to make it install via homebrew. But if you are using homebrew you should have all the required tools on your system already and installation of afpfs-ng-OSX is quite easy. First you need to install Fuse for macOS don't do that via homebrew as I have hardcoded some library locations into afpfs which might make it incompatible if you install Fuse via brew.
It's explained in the readme that is shown when visiting the afpfs-ng-OSX github page. If you need help or something is unclear just let me know. This means you will have to activate file sharing in MacOS 9 and share a folder from there, to which you can connect from OS X. It doesn't work the other way around. Probably because originally it was made for Linux and that doesn't know anything about resource forks or HFS and its metadata. There's nothing I can do about that.
This also means that OS X is storing some information in e. Please report back after trying it. It's just a few days ago that I succeeded in making it work. So as far as I know, you're the first one to test it well, I've successfully tested it myself on Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion and Sierra. Hello Mabam Thank you for the very detailed message. I think it was NetPresenz is a must have piece of software.
In terms of the Mac OS 9 resource forks getting lost in transmission across the network , it's not a complete loss, files will just need to be compressed beforehand to prevent the same being lost in transmission. I am grateful that you brought this solution up. I absolutely have to visit the github page you referenced. As mentioned earlier there is NetPresenz. It's very stable yet simple to use. Again, it's not possible to connect the OS 9 machine to OS X macs because the latter has dropped the necessary services that would support a legacy connection.
Your solution appears to be the answer but of course, as long as folks know this leaves the OS X machine vulnerable to attacks so it is best to turn it on when needed.
Oh no, there's been an error
I will try to look at it in the next few days, perhaps later today, got a bunch of other things on the go. Thank you very much for sharing such a potentially invaluable, to me anyway, piece of software and thanks for allowing me to come back to you if I get stuck! Kind regards —Alex. Posted: Fri Nov 03, pm. Hi Mabam Thanks for the correction, I might have mixed things up.
So to reiterate, Netpresenz, when installed on an actual Mac OS 9 running vintage Mac, when setup properly, which is easy, will allow an OS X machine to connect to that Mac OS 9 machine, not the other way unfortunately. Is this correct? Posted: Sat Nov 04, pm.
I don't know actually. I run Netpresenz on a physical mac. I can read and write to the said Mac over FTP. Did you share the hard drive. File Sharing has to be on. The manual is very helpful for setting up FTP. That's how I got it all running actually. I read the manual, about 10 minutes for the section on FTP and then it worked. Once you set it up it's simple to remember. So file sharing has to be on though. You might want to get info on the Mac OS 9 hard drive and then choose to share that drive. Then turn on Netpresenz, it should work, it does in the real environment, not sure about vitualized.
