This is a very good article, which got me thinking …
I have 3 backups; Daily, Weekly and TimeMachine. So why not also have an Hourly backup?
When I’m working on documents and files, I put them into a folder called “Temporary” and move them into permanent locations as I finish working with them. I set up a new task in Carbon Copy Cloner to back up this folder (and nothing else) every hour. Although it may execute every hour, it’s very quick and just takes a few seconds.
Of course, if I happen to create a new file or document and delete it, all within the same time frame, I will not have a backup, but I figured nothing is perfect.
