Super-Duper vs Tri-Backup

Well I just bought Super, as it seems the easiest way to get my family to backup there Mac's.

I have been using "Tri-Backup" for a few years now, and it has served me well. Yet the rest of my family refuse to use it which means that I become the tech support person on a few non-backed up drives....very scary.

My question is I am used to doing a "Evolutive" backup using Tri-Backup.
which keeps a copy on the destination drive of every revision of all files, not removing a file to replace it with the newest version. What is the "Super-Duper" equivalent?

Now I also keep a bootable partition on an external hard drive in case of a visit by Murphy. Super dose this very well and simple enough for my family to get in the habit of doing so also.

Good work
thanks

Although I'm not familiar with Tri-Backup, I do understand what you're asking for, and it's not something that SuperDuper! does at present. Although we can leave files on the backup device that have been deleted (neither Copy Newer nor Copy Different delete files from the destination), we don't keep multiple versions of files that we're going to replace.

Hope that helps!
