TimeMachineGrowler 1.0

2009-08-27 03:43:46 UTC

Just in time for tomorrow’s release of Snow Leopard, TimeMachineGrowler is an app that will tell you how long Time Machine takes to create a back-up by posting Growl notifications when the back-up starts and finishes.

One of the promised “refinements” in Snow Leopard is faster back-ups, so you may find it interesting to compare how long a back-up takes on your machine running Leopard to how long it takes on Snow Leopard (assuming, of course, that you haven’t already abandoned Leopard for the Snow Leopard GM).
