I attach tags to certain files, primarily invoices and such, which makes filing them where they belong from the beginning possible. When bill pay day rolls around I only need to select the appropriate tag from the side bar in Finder and all my current invoices appear. It's a great system for my workflow; I've used it for years. Then recently I realized I should have a better back-up strategy. I purchased Carbon Copy Cloner which does daily back-ups of my SSD. Between Time Machine, the Clone, and an off-site back-up I'm confident my data is protected. But by adding the Clone I've introduced a problem into the system. Now when I select the payables tag in Finder I have two copies of each invoice one copy from the correct location on the SSD, and a second copy from the USB drive where the Clone is located. I've played with Automator thinking I could find a way to remove tags on the Clone, but the only actions there are for adding tags. I thought maybe I could just change the color of the tag in the Clone to something other than those I'm actively using. If that's possible, I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Now, my issue is only inconvenient; it's not something that will break my workflow. But if anyone has an idea for removing tags once a file gets to the Clone drive I'd sure love to hear it. Thanks to all who take the time to read this.
