Just got a Maxtor One Touch Mini 160 GB for my Santa Rosa MacBook 2.2 160 GB today.

CCC worked just fine, but took 1 hour 20 minutes to backup 63 GB (I have 1 GB RAM).

I used the MacBook a little today. No new movies or ITunes. Got the idea to try SuperDuper in Smart Update mode. It took about 8 minutes to do the update. I was excited.

The One Touch Mini was still bootable, but my wall paper was the default Leopard version. I didn't go any further.

Oh well, it was just a test.

Right, not unexpected -- as I've tried to say over and over, we're not yet compatible...

That's what you expect in terms of time difference. You can use copy selected files in CCC, and reduce the time backing up. That feature is similar to Smart Update in SD.

Thank You!!!!!!!!

I didn't know that if you select this option, CCC would only copy those files that had changed. It is similar to Smart Update in SuperDuper and IT DOES WORK.

I am still looking forward to a Leopard version of SuperDuper, but now that I know how to run CCC, I'm not concerned when it comes out.
