Carbon Copy Cloner vs Time Machine: best backup software for Mac

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Two (or multiple) backups is a great idea, as is storing at least one off-site (houses burn, disks get destroyed, etc).

 

For things like music files, where versioning isn't necessarily a good idea, a simple rsync backup is free and easy.

 

For MacOS system files, use a utility that is resource-fork aware. (Some of the generic unix utilities like rsync might not be. Apple's is, but you have to give the -E flag ).

If you copy (rsync) a file from A to B, and then the file on A subsequently goes missing, your backup on B is still present.
