"Ignore" doesn't mean "Ignore"

I've just wasted the past hour, taking the term "Ignore" at its word. "Smart Update" is literally a faster erase-then-copy, which means that "Ignore" never means "leave alone what's there".

I realize time passes after I back up, and I'm not worried about my user files. As you say, I understand them.
