I make periodic backups of my HD using Retrospect Express--which, by the way is a fantastic product--and the program does incremental backups by default, copying only the files that have changed since the last backup.
Occasionally, the "System" suitcase is backed-up, as though it had been changed, and I wondering what normal, day-to-day procedures change that particular file. Certainly, it must be involved in most everything that goes on with the machine, right? If so, why does it not get marked for back-up every time?
PS: I am posting this to the MacOS forum, because it does not see to be a question limited to my use of Retrospect. Please re-direct me if there is a better place.
