Back That Mac Up

Back That Mac Up

Step 4: Micromanage

 If you're a rabid backer-upper, your Backups folder will fill up fast. To weed out the excess, launch Backup, highlight one of the Plans in your Backup window, and select Plan > Full Backup to create a new master backup for that specific Plan. This restarts this Backup Plan from scratch, so you can delete all of the Plan's other backup files. Obviously, if you back up multiple Plans to the same Backups folder, be careful when rotating your backups.

In a sea of backup files, it's easy to grab the wrong one.
