Joe Kissell on Backup 3.0

Joe Kissell, author of Take Control of Mac OS X Backups, says Apple’s new Backup 3.0 might actually be useful:

Most importantly, Backup now performs additive incremental archives, which means that (a) it keeps old copies of files when they change, so that you can choose which one you want when it comes time to restore; and (b) it copies only new or changed files — not every single file — when performing a backup.
