I have never used Deja Vu before. It seems pretty simple but I have some basic questions with regard to backing up in general.
I now have 2 internal 400G SATA Seagate Drives. I have Deja Vu which I got with Toast6 and upgraded for $10.
I am new to backing up so I have some really basic questions:
Given the 3 different types:
- Straight backup of specific files
- Clone my entire system disk
- Mirror my system disk
I don't have any partitions, so I was thinking that cloning my main disk/startup volume is the way to go. Has anyone got any suggestions on which is the best option?
One question I have on cloning is that, say I upgrade an application, will that upgrade be reflected in the backup after the next backup is performed?
Does this clone look and feel EXACTLY like the original so that if my main drive died I could just plug and play? without reloading anything?
All the books say that Mirror is to risky!
Any particular advise on backing up before I start?
