Apple has released Backup 3.0.1 to .Mac subscribers.

The 4.8MB update addresses file restoration and other issues and is "highly recommended" for all users of Backup 3.0, Apple says.

The update addresses issues found restoring files to alternate locations and making the iDisk progress bar more accurate. Backup 3 is available exclusively to members of its $99 .Mac service.

This version of Backup (version 3) is easier to use than before, with several automation options, the capacity to back up more categories of information (including iTunes purchases), and Spotlight support.

Backup 3 offers preset backup plans for iLife content and other essential files; automatic scheduling for backing up to CDs and DVDs; advanced file restoration; and the ability to back up more than one Mac iDisk.
