I have a few questions and need some help/ recommendations. I have been using Super Duper for some time now and it does a smart backup of my entire HD up to an external USB drive every day.

I also have another external drive that I hold all my music and photos on.

My questions are this:

1 - How can I back up both my HD and my external drive with my media on together?

2 - I have read that I need to create a disk image to restore in case something happens. If I just do a backup like I have now, will this be sufficient or do I need to create a disk image also?

Thanks for your help

You'll want to partition your backup drive into two volumes, one for each source drive. Then, direct a backup for each source to its corresponding destination.
