I have used my SuperDuper backup on my fire drive for a few months. It backs up fine.

I have had problems tho' and wanted to do a restore.

I booted from the firewire drive and got into OSx fine - launched disk utility to do restore - it umms and argghgs for an hour then pops an error message.

I'll post that later.

Any ideas?

BTW - it a white macbook 2gig RAM.

Can you restore with SuperDuper! when you start from the drive? That's the way I suggest...

Maybe a daft question ?

How do you do that exactly. I read the documentation but I'm obviously missing something.

Thanks for the response it really is appreciated

You start up from the backup, and then "Backup - all files" from the backup drive back to the source.

Doh!

Many thanks indeed.
