The combination of block-level file updates and a nightly backup

compatible with JungleDisk.
I'll can't disagree with that. My offsite backup takes place at
2:30am--a time when I'm seldom at the computer and a logical time for
such a backup to occur. The backups happens without shutting Yojimbo
down and they are "incremental" (or block-level if you prefer)--my
entire Yojimbo database isn't being uploaded every night, saving on
time and upload charges to JD/S3. I can't speak for Time Machine's
behavior with Yojimbo as I've never allowed it to back up those files
but I do know of a colleague who learned that Time Machine wasn't
backing up a shared File Maker database because it was always open.
Perhaps the "core data/sqlite" nature of Yojimbo makes this less of an
issue--that's for wonkier minds than mine to worry over. (And as I
don't run Filemaker at this time, I have no idea what it's behavior
would be vis-a-vis JungeDisk Plus.)
Take what you will from my findings, but I am satisfied that my
Yojimbo data is being backed up on a nightly basis (with the proviso
that if I'm working through the night, a backup might be skipped) as
confirmed by the modification date on the JungleDisk'd Yojimbo file
which I check regularly and my testing of that archived file--a
procedure which will be repeated on an ad hoc basis. It may not be
"inherently compatible" but since it looks and quacks like a duck, I
believe I provided a satisfactory answer to the original question. And
if I have to resort to my offsite backup--as opposed the local Time
Machine/SuperDuper drive--I'd rather have a Yojimbo file from yesteray
or last week (or even last month) than no file at all--and there are
probably a number of higher priorities on my worry list.
YMMV. Best regards!
