How Can I Clone iPhoto Library?
How can I copy my (iLife 08) iPhoto Library bundle to my
home server?

I can't find the proper rsync magic and I am not sure how
to create a SuperDuper script that will copy just the bundle.

I am currently copying the *whole* thing which is more
bother than it's worth....

While it's relatively easy to select the proper folder/bundle, we cannot copy directly to a network drive, and would need to store the result in a sparseimage. Would that still work for you?

I sorta figured that out when the networked drive did not show up ;(

Anyway I found that the following rsync script "seems" to work...

cd /Users/jerry/Pictures
/usr/bin/rsync -azE --delete "iPhoto Library" \

iPhoto Library Question
I'm sorry this is not exactly on target but it is related so I'll ask the question:

I have my iPhoto6 Library (much larger than 4 GB) on a WD Passport drive that's formatted FAT32. Will I be able to upgrade to iPhoto7 as is, or will I need to reformat the drive to be able to accept the iPhoto7 bundle?

Thanks in advance for answerind a non SD question.

Sorry, no idea (but in general you should use an HFS+ volume, not FAT32).
