I'm a new SuperDuper! user. I have one internal drive that has most of my files on it, and then an external drive with my iTunes Library on it. I want to back up both of these to a second external drive. I'm still running Tiger.

I've read a bunch of threads on this subject and have gathered that I need to partition the destination drive in order to do this. No problem. But what I don't get is how I set up the second drive to be backed up. There seems to be only one place to choose the source drive, and I'm already using it for my internal drive. Am I supposed to create a new copy script to do this?

Thanks in advance!

No, you'll just schedule both copies. Set up one, click Schedule..., set up the other, click Schedule... -- each one is independent of th eother.

Sorry, another new user, having less luck searching. I also have multiple drives I want to back up to a firewire drive. I've already backed up both drives, but now I'm wondering if I need to make separate partitions for each drive being backed up so that they will "look identical" as each drive. Is that correct or can they both exist together and be backed up successfully?

I'm doing all this in preparation for running Boot Camp/Windows on my mac.

Yes, you definitely want separate partitions for each source volume.
