Warning: unsupported Time Machine volumes for backups can be dangerous
Authored by: everkleer80 on Nov 10, '09 01:17:54PM

Haha you're probably right for the most part! Now that I have the feature, I use it, but my data's not all THAT important so if the backup helps me out then great, if it gets corrupted or something then it's not a huge deal. And I'd be willing to bet that most people think like that (and If their backups are critical then I'm sure they're not using Time Machine!)

Critical Backups and TM
Authored by: rodneyweston on Nov 10, '09 02:19:49PM

Suggestion: If their backups are critical they are not JUST using Time Machine. I find TM very effective for what it does (especially restoring old versions of files which I have stupidly written over - such as last months bank reconciliation).

However, for my system backups, I have two SuperDuper! clones... which is faster and (reportedly) more reliable for a full system restore using TM.
