Why the Time Machine hate?
Authored by: tedw on Oct 06, '10 01:52:58PM

Well, the problem with this, as I see it, is that I don't know how to use TM as a front end without setting it up to actually start making backups. if you design your own rsync thingee, I can't see any way to get it to work with TM. Plus, I personally use an updated version of rsync (rsync 3.0.x handles resources forks better than the 2.6.9 version that ships with leopard and snow leopard), but I don't know whether TM uses the system version of rsync or its own internal implementation, and I don't know what the changes in options keys from 2.6.9 to 3.0.x (which are noteworthy) would do to TM. that's just one of those black-box problems that comes from working with pre-structured interfaces.
