Ah, in Backup. OK, many thanks.

I was about to add the standard apology for noob ignorance, @TMroy. But after some thought and a degree of trepidation (because I respect this forum and am very grateful for your help here) I'm going to finger-wag instead.

Snapshots can be backed up, which is an ideal combination. But you emphasise elsewhere -- absolutely rightly -- that snapshots aren't backups. A warning in the Backup Notes reminds us of the danger. The only possible conclusion is that file system snapshotting DOESN'T BELONG IN AN APP NAMED BACKUP.

Please escalate this to the devs. It should, of course, be in Snapshot.

We appreciate the warning and appreciate that TM is alerting us to potential attacks on other NAS providers that may also target TM NAS in the future. I must say, though, that you guys could teach QNAP a lot from Deadbolt because you guys have really learned from it. (I have a QNAP as well, and I've never heard of Checkmate.)
