Entourage backup with Time Machine

My Entourage was crashed on 12 Sept.  Although I could find the latest Time Machine backup on 9 Sept, the Entourage backup inside this copy was 5 Sept. It implies that Time Machine backup couldn’t backup the latest Entourage emails.

Any idea how to ensure that Time Machine will backup the Entourage daily ?

Best advice: Use Mail.app. Mail uses thousands of tiny files while Entourage uses one big file. Therefore TM can back up Mail in a few seconds every hour. I'm not sure how TM would ever keep up with an Entourage backup every hour, which is what it is trying to do.

If TM didn't back up your Entourage file, the main reason is likely to be that there was not enough time given to the backup or there was not enough space on the drive. But then you should have been able to see that this had happen, so I guess it could be a bug of some sort.

To answer your question, the two things I would do is check the TM status in the TM menu (in the menu bar). Secondly, you can enter the TM browser and check the date of the Entourage data file.
