Hello,
I backup over a network to a file system that is automounted using SMB and a netinfo configuration. There are times when the automount does't work (often if I'm doing the backup over WIFI and the connection is weak) In such a case, SuperDuper creates a new disk image on my mount point. This usually results in my drive filling up after a while.

It would be nice to have a configurable option to tell SuperDuper to warn me with a confirmation dialog if it is creating a new disk image. I like the fact that it create a disk image if one doesn't already exist but I'd like to be warned that this is happening.

Is this feasible?

Thanks,
Bruce

Not at present, Bruce. I think, though, that you could use a "before copy" shell script to detect the location of the image and abort (by returning an error) if it's on your local drive.
