i just switched from windows to mac (finally!), so i'm a total newbie to mac: forgive me for asking a question influenced by (very) bad windows-experience that might not be an issue on mac at all:

-> can i keep working on my mac while SuperDuper does a (scheduled) backup? or will that wreak havoc on my backup?

-> how does SuperDuper handle files that i'm working on at the time of the backup?

ignore?
backup the status at the time the backup occurs?
remember and backup as soon as i close the application keeping a handle on the file?


and tnx for the great app!

In general, light work while backing up is fine. Don't download big files, run VMWare or Parallels, etc.

We copy the files as they are on the drive when we hit them. If a file isn't written when we pass it, we won't copy it until the next backup.
