View Full Version : Restore from SD-Backup PLUS Time Machine

02-08-2008, 12:07 PM
Hi there,

my planned backup strategy is as follows:
Every weekend I run SD with smart update on one drive which goes into the drawer after backup. In addition I keep an extra TM-drive connected at all times.

Say my harddrive failed on a thursday. I then would restore from my SD backup. What's missing is the data between the last SD Backup and the last TM backup before the crash.

How would I restore this missing data. Is there an option somewhere where I can say 'please restore all changed data from this point in time'. Best would be a single button in SD which says "Get up-to-date from Time Machine".

Thanks so much!

You'd do it with Time Machine's own interface...

Okay, I can restore single files with the TM interface. The only thing I found was restoring whole folder structures. Would TM in this case only copy back files that are currently missing or would it restore every file in the selected folder structure (what would be a bit time consuming)? In the former case restoring the whole drive would do the trick.
I'm a little hesitant to just trying it out on my system.
