Does a log exist setting forth dates/times/HD drive partition for previous backups?

If you Cmd-click the title of an existing log, you'll see a list of the other logs available for this particular run (schedule or manual). Those are in a folder within each settings package, and are named with the date/time of the run...

Thanks for the reply Dave.

Where on my HD would the settings package be? I've looked in /library/SuperDuper and /library/application support/superduper. Also, looked at my log listing via Console. Neither show me a SD log file.

thanks

If you Cmd-click the title of a given log, it shows you the location...

Problem is I can't seem to find a log to look at. When a log is generated, what is its file name? This way I can search via Spotlight.

Just open SuperDuper! and press Cmd+L.

Ah, there they are. Thanks for the direction.

Any plans in the works to create a simple log summary listing dates of backups/drive partition written to, etc.?

LOL. You have a great product. I recommend it whenever I can. Thanks for your creative efforts.

As I mentioned in the previous post, it would be great to have a log summary of backups. Thanks for considering it.
