I purchased it yesterday it has a nice set of auto backups. I am testing it out now. if you have a pair of 2 bay jbod cases using 4 hdds. you can schedule a full backup every nite of the week. that means a cloned boot drive that is only 1 nite old. not bad at all.

drive (a) sunday nite clone
drive (b)monday nite clone
drive (c) tuesday nite
drive (d) Wednesday nite
drive (a) erase and use on thur
drive (b) erase and use on fri
drive (c) erase and use on sat.

it is more for business to need a full backup every day but unlocked superduper can do this at a decent cost.

Sometimes I use SuperDuper for manual clones, and other times I use CarbonCopy Cloner when SD makes a corrupt image. And visa versa.
But for nightly backup's I use CarbonCopy Cloner. Both are Fantastic pieces of software.

I've used both as well, and preferred Carbon Copy Cloner. Although I'm currently using ChronoSync as my main backup.

I have had bad luck with CCC more then SD.

Your ChronoSync looks interesting.

I purchased SD years ago, never had a problem that was not of my own making.
The author, Dave Nanain has always been very quick to respond to any email questions I've ever had.
