Actually, with BlogCollector, it was that it would not work for my

Hello jakesview-ga,

The official method to back up your blog is clearly explained here:

This method will allow you to easily backup your blog content to your
computers drive no matter what operating system you are running.

The best way to backup your entire blog is to get a second server and
upload all the content to that. In that case, if your first site ever
goes down AND the blogger site goes down, you would have a third copy
available. The chances of the blogger site going down and losing your
content is almost zero because they are a professional website with
redundancy built in.

For a more complicated backup system using Mac OS X, you could follow
the instructions here: The direct,
step-by-step instructions for most users can be found here:

Please let me know if you require further clarification and I will do
my best to continue assisting you. All the best,

Hello jakesview,

I think you should consider purchasing the BlogCollector Standard
version ($68) which has the limitations removed that limit how much of
your website it will backup for you. The reason it did not back up all
of your posts is because you are using the FREE version (which has

You can purchase this by clicking on the Buy button at the bottom of
the middle column on this page:

This really is the only tool that I can find with Mac OS X support. If
this doesn't work, I think we could try setting up an ftp server and
capturing the files after publishing to an external website.

I hope this helps,
