I haven't played with versioning much, but ideally recovering an accidentally deleted file could be done from an earlier version of the backup.

When you sync in HBS3 there is a oneway sync option .

Back up in HBS3 will compress data and added to A will be added to B but removed from A will not be deleted from B

Set up one way sync and all of A will be copied to B.
Next time new on A will be added to B
Deleted from A will be deleted from B
Looks like HBS3 requires explicitly checking an option for "Deleted from A will be deleted from B" on a one way sync

No, we agreed that you could make backup behave like sync.

What I "discovered" was that for sync to behave like sync with regard to deleted files also requires a setting.
