Are there any differences between Carbon Copy Cloner and Time Machine's snapshots? I've been using both for awhile and would rather just use one (CCC). Initially, I was Time Machining to a specific disk and CCC'ing to two other disks. Well my TM disk died so I figured I would just turn on snapshots with CCC and keep using my other two disks. I'm using a MBP 13' 2017 with CCC 5.1.7 and two external disks (one at work/home). I encrypt my disks before touching them with CCC. A little confused on the whole encryption thing. CCC really pushes hard to format unencrypted, backup to create recovery hd, then boot to that drive and encrypt after backup, all so that I can boot from the disk and recover it easier. However, if I'm willing to recover Mac OS from the disk that came with my MacBook then install CCC then restore from my external CCC disk, that should be fine too, right? https://bombich.com/kb/ccc5/frequently-asked-questions-about-encrypting-backup-volume#pre_encrypt Anyone use TM AND CCC? Thanks for your time.
