Thanx Craig, Joe, I missed the versioning support in DropBox. Cool.

I'm paranoid I guess.  I use Time Machine 2-3 times a week and Chronosync once a week. I also use Chronosync to create a bootable clone once a month.  I also upload to Dropbox and Sugarsync daily.


Fortunately (or unfortunately?) I don't spend as much time as others on my computer so my notes, etc don't change as radically.


My biggest concern now if if I'll have enough time finding the last back. :-)



The default settings for Time Machine are to backup all files that have changed.  TM does this hourly for all files not marked as files you don't want to backup.  To restore you just open Time Machine from your Applications folder and navigate to the folder containing whatever you want to restore, click on it, and click the restore button.


For 99.something% of Accordance users, what craigminah said (and what I previously said) is what you need.

Sorry about that, I didn't see your post but i didn't mean to plagarize you.  I'll fax you a royalty check shortly :)
