    At the moment I am happy to have TM do the hourly back ups and I will probably keep the daily CCC back ups with Snapshots.

    I have been reviewing my Back Up strategy, which is, at the moment, hourly back ups to Time Machine and a daily back up via Carbon Copy Cloner to an APFS formatted SSD.
