Restoring to a larger drive?

Hi,

I'm thinking of changing my SSD drive to a larger one. I use SuperDuper regularly to keep a bootable clone.

Bootable backup over the network?

Hi,

(I've just had to do a full system restore from a bootable backup, and it worked perfectly! thanks for this great software!)

I have seen in the user's guide that one can make a bootable...

Hi again,

Is there a way to run SD (automatic backup) as a Menu Item?
that would allow for more discrete backup process, with of course the possibility to click on the menu item and get to the...

Thanks, this works (taking the SD app as explained in the OneTouch FAQ), and using launchd (seems to be the preferred way over cron in the new versions of OSX) for periodic scheduling.

AppleScript to run a backup

Hi,

I'm creating an automator that runs a backup under certain conditions.
For now, my way of running the backup is a bit ad hoc, in the sense that I use a launch application action, and then a...

That would be a very good idea indeed. Following the "full/clear explanations" of the rest of the UI, it makes sense.

Just out of curiosity: why is it that you don't have fresher SD backup? and would a periodical scheduling of SD (similar to that of TM) have helped you getting a more recent SD backup by the time of...

Answering to myself: I found that I can actually schedule the same process various times, so I can indeed have it run at several precise times during a day.

SD/TM: "soft" stopping

Hi,

I'm moving away from Time Capsule for my whole system backup (although it works fine, it's really too slow). I appreciate the speed of Smart Update.
