Hi there,
I'm loving SuperDuper! and I am wondering if it is possible to use a shell script (or any kind of code) to edit the Spotlight Comments (in Get Info) of the source and target drives with the following info: "Last backed up using SuperDuper! on [date] at [time]." If possible, I would want the script to preserve any text in the Spotlight Comments that was not made by that script earlier. Is this possible? Let me know if I can be more specific to help you get an understanding of what I want. Thanks!

It's probably possible, techno... perhaps you could do it with an AppleScript.

How can I use AppleScript to "ask" SuperDuper! what the source and target disks are? Thanks!

You can't at present, though you could try parsing the name of the settings file...
