Wording Confusion with Get Backup App for Mac
I love Get Backup for setting up my backup automations for my Mac. It’s free, and if you don’t have a backup app you love, I suggest giving it a shot.
For those who haven’t used it before, it has an interface that displays all of your backups in a stacked interface so you see one backup at the top and a list of the other backups below. Overall, it’s a pretty slick and intuitive interface.
I was recently confused though when I went to remove one of the synchronizations I had setup. First off, I was looking for a delete button in some corner of the synchronization window but didn’t see one. I looked through the edit menu and then the other main menus until I found Synchronize > Remove from List.
I was a little worried because I wasn’t sure what it was going to remove. I assumed the project currently in view.
The confirmation text didn’t help either. The wording “project” didn’t make sense because I didn’t know/remember that’s what each Synchronization was referred to. Would have liked to have had the word Synchronization somewhere in the language. I assumed project referred to all of my Synchronization setups.
Turns out that what I did worked and each Synchronization setup in Get Backup is referred to as a project.
Would love to see some of the wording clarified, but still love the app and haven’t had any need to switch since I started using it. Thanks BeLight Software!
