CloudPull backs up Google Docs, Google Reader, Google Calendar, and Google Contacts to your Mac. CloudPull runs as a login item and backs up your Google data automatically every hour. CloudPull maintains backups of deleted items and old versions for 90 days. CloudPull provides a Mac-native user interface to working with your backups. With the ability to search by name, to preview with Quick Look, and to restore by drag-and-drop, CloudPull provides a backup solution that integrates perfectly into your Mac. CloudPull backs up Docs as Microsoft Office files, Reader items as Web Location (.webloc) files, Calendars as iCalendar (.ics) files, and Contacts as VCard (.vcf) files. Whether you need backups because of a problem with your Google Account or because you are offline, your backups are available on your Mac. If you keep separate Google accounts for your company, your clients, and your personal life, you can back them all up with CloudPull.
What is new in this release:
- The update adds fixes to the Activity Window to avoid display bugs under OS X El Capitan. The app now includes configuration changes required to communicate with Google APIs under App Transport Security in El Capitan. The app is now compiled with Xcode 7 against the OS X 10.11 SDK. When saving backup files that have long file names, CloudPull now truncates the base name to 200 characters. In previous versions it truncated the base name to 32 characters.
What is new in version 2.7.4:
- When adding or updating Google account credentials, CloudPull first deletes any pre-existing entries that might exist for that account in the keychain and then adds a new keychain entry. It never updates existing keychain entries.
- The first time this version of CloudPull is run, it will delete its Google account credentials from the keychain and then add them again.
- Fixed a bug displaying items that have an indeterminate last modified date.
What is new in version 2.7.2:
- For customers with 1Password installed, the sheet showing you the Google login page will contain a 1Password button. Clicking on the 1Password button will open 1Password and ask it to display your Google accounts.
- When setting up an account, CloudPull will now proactively warn you if avast! Mail Shield is enabled. CloudPull's backup of Gmail is not compatible with avast! Mail Shield. This update does not address the incompatibility, but it provides a more helpful error message.
- If validating sufficient access to your account results in an error message, that error message will now be aligned correctly.
- The user style sheet for the Google Request for Permission page in the login workflow has been updated.
What is new in version 2.7.1:
This update fixes a bug that could cause calendar backups to fail after deleting a calendar.
What is new in version 2.7:
CloudPull 2.7 is now available with two major improvements: the ability to limit Google Drive backups to traditional Google Docs, and a modernized status indicator in the menu bar.
By default, CloudPull still backs up all files on Google Drive. You can limit Google Drive backups to traditional Google Docs in the account sheet of the preferences window.
In addition, I have redesigned the menu bar status indicator. Taking a queue from the status indicator for Time Machine, the icon is no longer animated while CloudPull is performing backups. Instead, it will show a static arrow while a backup is in progress. In addition the status indicators are now monochrome images, making them look much better in Yosemite's dark mode.
Other improvements include:
Updated wording for Google Drive document types: Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. Compiled against the OS X 10.10 SDK with Xcode 6.1.
What is new in version 2.6.1:
Fixes a bug in honoring Mac App Store purchases.
