Life without Time Machine backups

While I’m waiting for Western Digital to replace my external backup drive — it lasted for 9 months, so that’s pretty good, right? — I’ve been finding comfort in using borg (free) (documentation) , wrapped in the LaunchControl UI ($18) to do hourly incremental backups to my flush Transcend SD card.

LaunchControl is still a little too techy for me, but I got it working pretty quickly. Recommended! And the Transcend is fast enough that I my Mac doesn’t hiccup when it’s being backed up to.
