Backup tool optimized to help you keep your video footage in multiple locations without having to waste too much time on the transfers
Keeping raw footage backed up in multiple locations is essential to make sure you don’t lose any data, yet the recordings usually take up a lot of space which makes the transfer process rather time-consuming.
Hedge is a backup manager optimized to deal with these tasks so that you can work with multiple sources and destination locations, monitor the transfers, and get alerted when the task is complete.
Backup tool that can work with multiple volumes regardless of their type
Upon launch, Hedge will scan your Mac for connected disks and will display them in the main window. The utility can work with RAID, NAS, SAN, USB, or Thunderbolt disks, as well as remote servers or cloud services.
Note that each volume comes with an associated contextual menu so you can easily set one of the contained folders as a source or destination location. In addition, you get to set a disk as unused, add it to the ignore list, rename the volume, or open it in a Finder window.
Quickly unload your footage to multiple disks thanks to the optimized transfer function
Once everything is set up properly, just press the “Start Transfers” button and the utility will take care of the rest. You get to track the process within the app and get confirmation messages via the Notification Center.
For your convenience, Hedge allows you to work with scripts to streamline certain repetitive actions. The app will log both the transfers and the script's activity so that you can check the app’s performance.
Keep your footage safe with the help of this backup solution that works with multiple locations
Hedge brings to the table an uncomplicated workflow for configuring backup transfers from varied sources to even more backup locations while taking advantage of all available resource to reduce the processing time.
The best part is that Hedge comes with an iOS companion app, so you can rely on the Hedge Connect service to get transfer completion alerts on your mobile device.
