I read the "sandbox" description.  Isn't it redundant with periodically backing up where the backup is the protection against some update, etc. problem?

It is all pretty well described in the two links I posted above.

Yes, the Sandbox is protection against problems from pre-release software or a bad update, but no, there is no periodic backup, in fact there is no backup of your user data at all.

The Sandbox is a duplicate system and apps which uses the same user directory as the primary OS and apps.

Personally I would never recommend it for regular use just as a protection against a bad update.
