I know some people keep their data on a separate partition to keep it away from the OS, and it therefore remains current whichever snapshot you're in. Some users keep their data on the one partition and anchor it so it remains current whichever snapshot they're in. I was wondering how the scenario such as used by Peter2150 works. He, and others, have two snapshots only with the secondary snapshot stripped down. This group of people rely on the archives structure to help them get out of trouble or to simply refresh from an earlier copy/update. My query relates to this scenario: if you update your primary archive nightly and your data is also backed up by some other means, what happens if you do some work on your data the next day, but something goes amiss and you need to rollback. The copy/update is going to reverse everything from the night before, including your data so you lose what you've just worked on. Do you data anchor even with archives? Or some other method?
