One stop shop for Time Machine
With BackupLoupe you are able to answer questions like
  • Why is Time Machine so slow?
  • Why is my Time Machine drive already full?
  • Which files are actually being backed up?
  • Has a particular file/folder been backed up at all?
  • How many revisions of a file/folder exist in Time Machine?
  • A file/folder was deleted accidentally. When did this happen and where is the latest backup?
