The app does not compress, encrypt or FTP files. It’s not a two-way sync nor does it come with a restore function.
It does just one thing—it mirrors A to B.
Backup GMail (or other IMAP) accounts to disk
zbackup is a globally-deduplicating backup tool, based on the ideas found in rsync. Feed a large .tar into it, and it will store duplicate regions of it only once, then compress and optionally encrypt the result. Feed another .tar file, and it will also re-use any data found in any previous backups. This way only new changes are stored, and as long as the files are not very different, the amount of storage required is very low.
Any of the backup files stored previously can be read back in full at any time. The program is format-agnostic, so you can feed virtually any files to it (any types of archives, proprietary formats, even raw disk images…)

Attic is a deduplicating backup program written in Python. The main goal of Attic is to provide an efficient and secure way to backup data. The data deduplication technique used makes Attic suitable for daily backups since only the changes are stored.
SiteSucker is a Macintosh application that automatically downloads Web sites from the Internet. It does this by asynchronously copying the site’s Web pages, images, backgrounds, movies, and other files to your local hard drive, duplicating the site’s directory structure. Just enter a URL (Uniform Resource Locator), press return, and SiteSucker can download an entire Web site.
There’s an iOS version, too.

Time Warp is a tool for modifying Time Machine’s backup behavior using weighted reservoir sampling.
Larch is a tool to copy messages from one IMAP server to another quickly and safely. It’s smart enough not to copy messages that already exist on the destination and robust enough to deal with interruptions caused by flaky connections or misbehaving servers.
Larch is particularly well-suited for copying email to, from, or between Gmail accounts.
