View Full Version : Use SuperDuper! to copy iPhoto libraries

01-07-2007, 11:02 AM

I would like to use SuperDuper to copy iPhoto libraries from one Mac (the photo upload Mac) to another Mac on the network (the backup and photo viewing mac).

Ideally this would be a task which runs every day or week and only copies changes from the upload mac to the viewing mac.

Is ths possible with SuperDuper? :)

Sorry, Marc -- this isn't possible with SuperDuper.

I regularly do a one way sync of iPhoto from my desktop machine to my laptop. The instructions (translated for iTunes) are in http://www.shirt-pocket.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1688 but you should be able to figure out the equivalent steps for iPhoto without much difficulty.

One step I do now that isn't documented in the previous post is to close iPhoto on both machines and to dismount the iPhoto sparseimage on the laptop before running SuperDuper!.
