One feature that I didn't get into is the scheduled copy of snapshots. I understand the power and ease of that feature, but it didn't make sense to me that I was updating a recovery backup with a certain frequency. When I think of recovery, then I want to be able to revert to a known functioning status. Basically a frozen status after I installed Windows with the software that I use and all the relevant settings. The disadvantage is that I had to maintain security updates and driver updates for the frozen image. Which means loading the image, updating, and refreshing the image. Now, I have a wife who insists in playing those online games that co-install spyware. And I don't want that to seep into my backup solution. What Acadia is doing for his documents, I would do the same for software updates: Keep it strict separate. When I need to apply some kind of update, I would update the work snapshot, reboot into the backup snapshot and apply the same update there. Nothing else from the work snapshot seeps into the backup. What do you think?
