Different files at different times
Authored by: terceiro on Sep 10, '04 02:12:57AM

Like many other people, I back up different files at different frequencies. This ranges from daily (working files) to never (system files). Working with a laptop in a semi-public location, I'm mostly paranoid about theft. I'd be much more depressed about the lost work than the lost hardware.

One other reason why things get backed up at different frequencies is that I'm never completely satisfied with my routine. I keep wishing that .mac Backup would act as a reliable option for simple, brainless offsite backups. But the darned thing won't ever, ever completely work as advertised. Get what you pay for, I guess. Unless you're a Retrospect Express user, in which case you are just hosed and have to start over from scratch. Grrrrr.
