How good is Leopard’s Time Machine?

I leave a hard disk on the floor next to the couch backing up with time machine. Today I was installing a new copy of vBulletin, but they use an awful disk structure of code+resources in one folder, so when I replaced my forums folder with theirs, I inadvertently wiped out the images that my forums user interface uses.

Well, time machine to the rescue!:

  • Navigate to my images folder
  • Click Time Machine on the dock
  • Click back arrow
  • See the missing “a2” folder, select it
  • Click restore
  • Upload files to server


Awesome, awesome, awesome.
