I think it would be nice if everytime you paused enough for scriv to do it's autosave, it would just autosynch instead of depending on a daily backup.

Every time Scrivener autosaves, OS X automatically syncs the changed doc to your iDisk. And if you have more than one computer and have set up automatic iDisk syncing on them, the changes will be pushed out to them as well. Have three computers? You'll end up with three local copies and one offsite.

ExecutiveEditor wrote:If, on the other hand, you're asking whether a backup of your Home folder also backs up the local iDisk (for an additional level of protection), the answer is likely yes, as long as your backup of the Home folder includes the ~/Library folder. The local iDisk is actually a disk image stored inside the Mirrors folder inside the Library folder.

I have one of these set up in my backup location, so that whenever I save a backup out of Scrivener, it is automatically in a secure location on my web account. I needn't even do anything. I hear Transmit has this feature now, too.
