Coming to think of it, there would be a way to back up Yojimbo with Time Machine: you just need to create a sparse bundle disk image with Disk Utility, put your Yj DB on that and make the Yojimbo folder in ~/Library/Application Support/ an alias to the mountpoint of the image in /Volumes

This is getting offtopic for Yojimbo so I won't continue past this email. I appreciate your comments Jan and I do understand the issue of data of data consistency. The only way to completely avoid that is to take the system completely down for backup and either run the backup in single user mode

I was unaware of the restriction regarding Yojimbo and Time Machine. Fortunately I haven't upgraded to Leopard yet (but had planned to do so now that the 10.5.2 update is out and in fact have the Leopard box sitting on my shelf). Time Machine was one of the driving reasons for me to upgrade
