Hi!

I made a bootable backup of my Macintosh HD on my external HD. For the moment, external HD looks like this:

Can i add other files on my external HD? Will SuperDuper! still be able to clone my Macintosh HD from my external HD to my new HD (inside my MacBook)? Will those extra files be ignored or deleted?

Thanks!

Please see "Storing a backup alongside other files on a destination drive" in the User's Guide. In general, no, you shouldn't add files to a backup volume. But you can divide your drive into multiple volumes through partitioning, which will allow these things to exist side by side.
