I have a external 4TB HDD that I frequently update with video files. I want to keep a offsite backup of this drive which the person holding for me can access the files. Till now, they just have been bringing the drive over to my house once a month to have it updated and that has worked OK for the most part but is time consuming. I'd like to know what the advantage is of doing a "clone" in CCC or SuperDuper has over my method (if any). I see the new CCC can do offsite backup. If I do that, can we avoid the need to manually bring the backup drive to be updated by letting the software manage what files were changed and updating the drive accordingly? What advantage is there to cloning vs just selecting all and copying/pasting from one drive to another? Thanks for the help on m newbie questions.
