View Full Version : 1-Click ?

12-16-2005, 09:41 PM
Greets, Is there a way that I can double click a setting file and have it executed with NO interaction? This is the _only_ thing I miss about Retrospect. Sorry if this has been covered. I didn't see it in the FAQ or manual.

Regards and thanks for a wonderful product. I'm typically able to do a "smart backup" of +/- 50GB of data in 5 minutes. Wouldn't belive this is I wasn't seeing it for myself.

Actually, zington, no -- but you could write a little AppleScript to do it -- pretty simple script:

tell application "SuperDuper!" to run using settings "settings" without user interaction

That should do it...

As is I have two Settings I use and invoke through keystrokes set by MaxMenus. I but then have to click the Copy Now button. A script that would be 1-click (the keystroke) would be sweet. In your response to the original poster you give a hint of what such a script might be. Unfortunately I have not been able to use the necessary vocabulary to make it work.

Thanks for your work!

tell application "SuperDuper!" to run without user interaction

would work for you?

Or should I say, "D'oh!"? I am ignorant of scripting ways and ASSumed "to" was merely stuff you were writing and not proper syntax, among other stoopid mistakes. IOW I have things fine now.

So, how about quitting SD! as part of this process? In the script would I include a wait time sufficient for SD! to do it's thing and then tell SD! to quit? I know one of SD!'s "And Finally ..." options is to sleep. I wonder why "Quit" isn't an option.

Quit is an option in the "And finally" options...

That's the sound of my head banging against the wall.

Thank you, Dave.

No problem!
