CCC configuration help
So I am trying to configure CCC so that whenever I run a backup of my hard drive, it updates the image file on the external drive to the current state of my hard drive, and NOTHING ELSE. In other words, I don't want it archiving "old states" of my hard drive. I still want it to do incremental backups, only that all previous "increments" are deleted, so that when the backup completes, the image is strictly a copy of hard drive at the time of running of the backup, and no traces of previous backups are present, if that makes sense?
If so, then what options would I need to configure? This is my guess:
Assuming we start off with the default configuration of the program, these are the changes I think I should make:
"Files and folders that are only present on the destination should be <<deleted immediately>> (default is moved to a temporary archive folder)
Files that have been modified since the last backup should be <<overwritten>> (default is moved to a temporary archive folder)
and under advanced, "Remove files on the destination that I have excluded from the backup" should be CHECKED, while the other three options should all be unchecked.
Any thoughts? Thanks for reading! :-)

I think if you have chosen the option to have the files overwritten then the previous versions of the backup will be removed.
I have tried Carbon Copy Cloner.
I actually have a hard time figuring out the best tool for backing up and I certainly do not want to use Time Machine.
