Hello folks,

I asked Mr Nanian recently regarding this, and was told Super Duper wasn't able to do this, so I thought I'd ask in here & see what you folks thought...

Basically, I did a complete backup using SD, as I had to send my Powerbook in for repair.

Having now gotten it back, I would like to restore the backup. HOWEVER, before I do so, I was wondering if there was a way to compare the 2 disks to see what would get updated/overwritten/erased - i.e. a sort of a "dry run" of Super Duper.

Could I do something similar with rsync using the "-n" switch?

TIA!
