Can anyone tell me what the differences are between SuperDuper and Carbon Cloner?

I need to make a choice and I'm not sure which to go for.

Many thanks

There are an awful lot of differences, David, from UI to Smart Update to accuracy. Perhaps you should give both a try and see which you like?

I have used both. To keep it short, I find SD! far superior: faster, better interface, flexible, reliable, intuitive, great documentation, the best tech support anywhere, and the price is right.

I have used both, and was a long-time user of Retrospect, and prefer SD. The added flexibility of SD makes it far more appealing to me. Don't misunderstand, CCC works very well. I back up often and don't want the task in my way. That alone would be enough to recommend SD. Two other cool things about SD. I was running a backup and had a Windows virus sitting in my Sophos quarantine folder and the back up refused to proceed. Very cool. And once I contacted Mr. Nanian about an odd disk space issue. It took all of about 5 minutes to get his reply, which was a bug in another AV program, which I deleted and have had no trouble since.
