View Full Version : Smart update not working in Leopard?

Since updating to Leopard, smart update when using the "Backup all files"-setting seems not to work. I have two different backups, and on neither does Superduper recognize more than approx. 8-12 gigs of data as up to date - the rest is copied anew to the backup drives. Needless to say, this makes the Smart updates very slow indeed, latest one took almost seven hours (I use USB2 external drives).

Is this a Leopard compatibility thing?

Yes, it is. Smart Update isn't going to be "smart" under Leopard.

Ok, thanks! Does this mean that the updated version of Superduper (the Leopard compatible one) will eventually deal with this, or is the timesaving Smart update gone for ever with Leopard?

Never mind, a closer inspection of blog and earlier entries gave me the answer. Looking forward to the update! Great software, by the way.

I'd be interested to know the reason but couldn't find the blog post, any chance you could post a link, thanks.

I am having the same problem.

After upgrading to Leopard, I backed up my drives, and now, every time I try to update them with Smart Update Option, Super Duper performs a full update.

However, when I update the backup that I made before upgrading to Leopard with Super Duper running under Leopard, the Smart Update Option works perfectly.

Any ideas?

I understand Short Pocket is working on a new version of Super Duper that will be 100% compatible with Leopard.

Yes. As I've said in this thread, it's due to incompatibilities with Leopard.
