I have been using Carbon Copy Cloner and Time Machine together. I only use CCC so I can immediately get back to work if something happens, and it is never up to date like TM. Now that CCC is paid, I was thinking of creating a small OS only bootable partition, maybe on an SD card. Then if I need to get back to work immediately I can boot into that and run my apps, files, etc. from the TM backup. I realize you would have to manually go through TM to find the files. Does that make sense, could it work? Thanks!
