I had occasion today to try to help an associate with a Time Machine question It led me to look at the bottom of the Restore Screen where the File string shows the backup drive that the restore will come from
I am at 10.14.6 (Maverick) on my iMac
I have used TM Restore several times in the past Usually it shows one of my two backup drives
Today it showed a 3rd source "HD@snap. "
There were / are several others like this with different sequence numbers
This may NOT be new. I may not have noticed previously
First question. I hope this is NOT some external program that is copying my hard drive to a cloud site
Second: I would like to assume that this is another “Mother Apple” sneaking something onto my hard drive for my own good ("eat the Brussels sprouts, they are good for you?). True?
Third: was this a known “benefit” of Maverick? Documented? Have to confess I did not read “Take Control of Mavericks”
Finally, should I be concerned that something has gotten into my iMac and is using Time Machine to steal my information
