Backing up Yojimbo data has never been easier
Yojimbo is a great tool for handling all your pieces and bits of information and notes. (See our report on Yojimbo.) One feature missing from Yojimbo is the integration with .Mac's Backup software. We provide a Backup QuickPick to help you backing up your Yojimbo data.
To use Backup software, you will need .Mac membership to activate Backup. (see here for more detail) Try .Mac free for 60 days now.
