After my disk crash today, I thought of the following:

If I have Smart Backup scheduled every night .. My primary disk goes bad and I boot off of the clone .. and during the debugging phase, I write zeros (secure erase) to the primary disk to test writes. My SuperDuper schedule is still active .. right? So .. Would it try to perform a Smart update to the clone (effectivly erasing it) based on the now null primary disk?

Are there any safeguards in place to not allow this?

We don't allow you to copy to the startup drive, Richard.
