I like Super Duper a lot and use it every week. I am not currently using the FileVault function in Mac OS X. What happens with Smart backup when I have a sparse image? Can Super Duper distinguish which files have changed or does it see the sparse image as having changed and therefore back up everything every time. If this were the case it seems that this would essentially gut the Smart backup feature :eek:

It would indeed, Bill. You can back up the FileVault volume separately, but that makes restore more difficult...

Thanks, Dave. That makes the FileVault option of dubious value. I think I'll just pass on it.
