I've transitioned to SuperDuper! from Retrospect and one feature I haven't found is the capability to create something that lives in the Dock and will run a specific backup (.dset) upon clicking. Right now it comes up with several dialogs that the user has to click through (and in some of them the default is to quit, so hitting Return a few times doesn't work.) I'm sure it's there but where, please?

P.S. Here's what I see if I open the .dset with BBEdit; I'm backing up Volumes/Etra/ToBackup to its own .dmg:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

We don't have a "run on launch" document, no. You can use AppleScript to do this kind of thing if you'd like.

You could also use the "One Touch Button" FAQ method you'll find here in the forums, and put the little "link" in your dock (or create an alias to it on your desktop).
