    In some cases a one off clone is all that's required for a clean install of an OS.
    Rod, the problem with that approach is that if you need the backup, all you have is your OS, none of your dynamic data. That dynamic data is what TM is brilliant at keeping. The default of a backup every hour is great for an office or work environment where things are changing rapidly and time is money. I use TM now twice a day because I don't need the dynamic data to be that timely. But if all I had was a backup of a clean install, I might be able to boot, but I would have lost everything since that install was done.

    So if your dynamic data is important to you, make more frequent backups.

    Gosh thanks, it is a little sad that so few people backup at all but undaunted I will continue to promote software for the task in the hope that those who read these posts might at least consider the free native alternatives like good old Time Machine.
