After I've cloned using SuperDuper, what is the file called on my Firewire disk? I have been using Firewire to backup data for a long time-such as Quicken, letters, passwords via Safe Place etc..so I had a lot of data already saved. I see nothing in the list which looks like the clone. Help!

I'm not sure what you mean, 'sirron' -- the backup isn't a file. We make a clone of the entire disk!

If you had data on the drive, and you used either Erase - then copy or Smart Update as your copy method, it removed anything on the destination drive that wasn't already on the source (as it states pretty clearly both in the WGTH? section of the main window and in the warning that comes up before the copy happens). Hopefully that's not what you're concerned about.

If the problem is that the drive looks empty in the Finder, that's a Finder bug -- it'll often not show when files are copied "behind its back". Try logging out and back in -- the files should be there.

Hope that helps!
