Is it possible to back up a network drive with SD!? I have a 250G drive attached to my Airport Extreme and would like to back that up on a regular basis. I currently back it up by connecting it and the backup drive to the firewire port on my desktop machine and doing a manual backup. It works, but it means that I have to make a conscious effort to do this. I'd much rather back this drive up automatically using SD! but it doesn't show up in either the source or destination menus.

Any ideas?

Sorry, no: that's not possible with SuperDuper.

I had a feeling... What makes a network drive different?

Mostly that we can't fully authorize against a network drive, so we can't ensure that we're copying all of the associated metadata, permissions, etc.
