Jus use Time-Machine

I can highly recommend Time Machine...

Buy an external drive that is somewhat larger than the sum sizes of you main drive and the external drive. Then just do time machine backups when your external drive is connected (and check that it is not excluded from backup). Since these backups are easily browsable you can restore single files or directories with no effort.

I have been using time machine for a few year now with 3 machine transitions via time machine and one full disk recovery operation just a few weeks ago. Every restore worked flawlessly.

Greetings,

Robert
