I'm not sure if this is particularly clever or not, but I haven't read about anyone else doing this type of Time Machine + backup configuration. I thought I'd let everyone else know what I'm doing in case they were wondering if it were possible. Problem: 1. I accidentally delete files daily. 2. I use a 17" MacBook Pro and refuse to carry an external drive to work with me just to get files back after I delete them. 3. My current drive capacity is only 100GB and its nearly full. Solution: 1. Bought a Hitachi Travelstar 2.5" 200GB 7200RPM 16MB cache drive and installed into my notebook 2. Created two partitions -- 126GB -> Leopard, Applications, Data -- 60GB -> Time Machine! 3. Use my Lacie Triple Interface 320GB for Super Duper clones (partitioned in half) -- Nightly clone via Smart update on the first partition -- Weekly clone via Erase and Backup on the second partition This works fabulously. I can get immediate results from Time Machine. The internal drive is fast enough and large enough to handle Time Machine. When I get home, Super Duper handles the cloning automatically (and the clones are bootable!). I decided that since I bought Super Duper for Tiger, I didn't want that purchase to go to waste with Leopard. This worked out great for what I need it to do. Anyone else have a better idea for notebook owners who want Time Machine on the road? I'm all ears!
