Easy to install solution for finding specific files within a Time Machine backup
Working with FileGoBack is extremely easy because the application places an entry in the Services list included in the Finder contextual menu. This way, the entire search procedure is reduced to selecting the file and choosing the FileGoBack entry in the contextual menu.
However, you can also achieve the same result by opening a new GoBack window via the FileGoBack menus: select the file you want to analyze via the automatically launched Finder window. Last but not least, you can trigger the search by simply dragging and dropping files on top of the app’s icon.
Effortlessly identify file versions within Time Machine backups
FileGoBack quickly searches for the indicated file inside all your Time Machine backups and creates a list of found versions: for each entry you can see the files size, the creation date, the document owner, and more. Via the FileGoBack main window, you can easily preview and restore any of the detected file versions.
Keep in mind that, if you have multiple Time Machine archives, going through all of them takes a lot of time. For your convenience, FileGoBack enables you to stop the search as soon as you find a suitable file version.
Powerful and streamlined solution for finding Time Machine file versions in no time
FileGoBack is a great tool to have around if you are using the Apple Time Machine application to backup your data and you want to access older files versions without any hustle. The utility integrates in your Services menu, includes support for drag and drop actions, and allows you to preview files before restoring.
