I did look at Synk, but I want something with the ability to save multiple versions of documents. That way, if a file gets corrupted, I can go back to a previous version.

As you say, SuperDuper! is very fast and convenient, so using both it and Tri-Backup, I have my bases covered. Thanks for the recommendation.

Hi Dave,

I need some advice and suggestions on how should I use SD Backup mode or Safety clone. I have two internal and one Firewire HD's. Currently on second internal HD I have backup of my data and Firewire has same personal data.

If I choose safety clone method should I use second HD for destination or create partition on boot drive? and perform weekly bootable backups on firewire HD from original HD as secondary backup.

Thank you,

Please note that a Safety Clone is not a primary backup in any way, it's just a way of snapshotting your OS. Don't mistake the Safety Clone for a backup!

So, what I'd suggest is partitioning the second internal hard disk. Your Safety Clone need only be about 8-12GB or so. The rest can be used as a primary backup, and your external could be used for secondary or you could use the other partition for data storage and just use the external for backup... kind of up to you!
