So I been using carbon copy cloner for the longest but the adding files to not include is a pain. I do not like Time Machine because it more of versioning of stuff instead of backing up. So anyone got a nice clean tool for backing up your stuff on Lion? Thanks

SuperDuper (http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/SuperDuperDescription.html) works great as well. I use TM, and either CCC or SuperDuper, either work fine for me.

it worked as a great for me as a simple, one-click way to restore everything (files, settings, accounts) to my new Mac when my old one died.. Just sayin..
I use a combination of Time Machine and an online-backup solution..

The issue I have is the versioning control. What I mean is I do not need the version that was done 3 days ago. I just want it to backup the most recent version only
