This may just be me, but hear me out.

1. Smart Update is perhaps the prime benefit of registering, right?

2. It's available only from a pulldown, right? This is OK, but...

3. When you start your backup, the screen looks exactly the same as a format/erase full backup. Yes, you get a popup. Yes, you can inspect the progress area to see how much time your saving (30-50MB/sec vs. 5 on m y iBook - nice!) but,

4. I still think you should put something up top to show that you're doing a Smart Backup rather than a full.

Yours for clarity,
Frank

Hi, Frank. If you're doing a scheduled copy, the title bar of the window does indicate that you're doing a Smart Update, but you're entirely correct -- the Copy Files section of the Status view does not indicate this fact.

I'll see what I can do about this in the future: thanks for the suggestion.
