I haven't found a way to make a backup of a file or folder to a path other than the original path. For instance, I'd like to copy...

/Volumes/Machintosh HD/Users/John/Documents/*

to

/Volumes/Backup HD/Users Backups/Laptops/John/

In other words, can the cloning aspect of SD be turned off in favor of a more functional backup capability?

Thank you.

No, it can't. You can, however, redirect things into a sparse disk image, which you can store into any folder of your choice. That maintains the ease of restoration and exact location parallels (which is highly convenient -- in some ways crucial -- to easy disaster recover), while allowing location-independent storage.
