10.5: Ease restore from Time Machine
Authored by: bugmenot on Dec 24, '07 06:44:34AM

I know that I'm late to the party here, but I would like to lend my experience :)

I like your strategy, since it would attack one problem that I had (where my drive became corrupted and superduper happily copied a new backup until it got to the corruption - overwriting my good backup in the process!). However, twice now I have experienced events that have killed both my regular AND backup drives. The first was lightning. Need I elaborate? :) The second was a bad case design, and the long and short of it was that one hard drive fell onto the one below it, killing both of them.

I now keep a local clone, but also subscribe to Mozy for $5/month. It has unlimited storage. It wouldn't be my first choice as a backup source, but I'm sold on offsite storage now!
