I saw where Pavel Cvrcek is no longer going to work on MozBackup. Do y'all know if there's another product that will take it's place? ... or being developed?
Thanks,
Mike

Not needed. It's too easy to copy the whole profile to another drive or removable medium, using a Zip program is necessary to reduce the storage space. See the "Manually backup the profile" in this article -- http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_backup

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Third_party_p ... d_services if you still want a automated solution. The ImportExportTools add-on for example as a option to automate & schedule backups. You can configure it to backup to the same location each time to save space, and has a option to save only files modified after the last backup. However, it has no provision for compressing the backup.
