Hi,
My grandson has a MacBook Pro and would like to backup his hard drive. Your highly regarded software package (SuperDuper) has come to my attention and looks like it fits all the requirements. My question has to do with the supported external hard drive interfaces. I have a spare Western Digital MyBook, MDL: WD25001032 which sports a "dreaded" USB 2.0 interface. I say dreaded because your documentation says that some Apple notebooks won't boot from a USB drive. I just want to confirm that the software will run on the MacBook Pro using a USB external drive.
Thanks in advance,
Ken

No need to post this in two places, Ken, both support and here. But, to reiterate what I said, yes, it'll work fine. Please ensure it's partitioned using the "GUID" partitioning scheme -- see the Options button in Disk Utility's Partition tab.
