New to Mac and Super Duper

While looking at the Mac internal Hard disk, I discovered that the backup image file was 30 gigs big!! Is this typical? Should I delete it from time to time? It was unter of course "Backups" ( I am backing up to a firewire partioned drive) and this is after a week of doing backups.

All depends on how much data you're copying to it... it can grow to the full size of the original drive, of course!

Any particular reason you're not copying directly to the drive? You're much better off doing that if you can...

May I ask how do I do that?

Sure. Select the volume you want to copy to in the destination pop-up, rather than "Disk Image..."
