I have been using a sync ritual with ChronoSync since I received my external drive and I sometimes use the option of using a Container for my syncs, which is a way of using several sync documents at one time. The things is, with the Container method, you don't see what will be synced as you would if you did a Trial Sync with a regular ChronoSync document. I do have sync deletions/move to archive checked, so, whatever is deleted is safe. But I am a bit nervous with it all over some time. In other words, I wonder what file may eventually be wiped out. Do you trust your syncs? I know I could do clones (incremental), but I am unsure of those as well. How about you?
I use Chronosync to do an automated daily backup of crucial files (docs, mail etc). It has always worked flawlessly. I have never used containers. My feeling is that using the Archive settings makes it secure.

Biggest rule of backups (well aside from actualyl doing them) is to occasionally do a test restore .. somethin to keep in mind. Having all kinds of backups is great, but if they don't actually restore you're no better off.
