I really liked QRecall during my trial period and I purchased a key. I'm going to be browsing the manual to learn more about the technical features, but one thing I would like to understand is whether QRecall can be used to restore the entire state of a Mac.

Thus far I have just been backing up my user directory, so I'm not backing up any apps or the OS or anything else. I know that the term "cloning" applies to making a copy of entire drives. But I am not sure that is what I want.

What I would like to do is back up all my files on a regular schedule. Sometimes I make use of backups to look at old versions in the case that I accidentally delete or modify a file. The other situation is a total failure of my main hard drive, in which case I would like to set up the entire drive or partition just the way it used to be. Is it possible to handle both of these use cases in a single type of backup operation?

I just download QRecall and set up an automated capture strategy to test it. My usage scenario is this:

  • I keep the archive on an external drive.

  • It is plugged in while I'm at home, which is 75% of the time.

  • I may have to unplug the external drive and leave home at short notice

  • So I would like it to capture data at least once per day, preferably two or three times per day. I also don't want to be stuck if it's working and I need to unhook the drive and go, so I want to be able to pause and resume the capture.

    Is this possible?
