10.5: A warning about Time Machine and battery power
Authored by: mcmikemn on Jan 08, '08 08:41:39AM

One possible reason to backup Time Machine to the same disk would be to utilize the functionality to retrieve accidentally deleted or modified files. This is even more helpful on a portable computer; when you travel and want this functionality, it's a hassle to carry an external disk. You're correct, of course, that it does not serve to secure your data from disk failure, but it can be useful.
