How's that for a confusing title?

This is what I really mean:

I want to use Time Machine to backup my computer to an external hard drive.

I then want to use SD! to clone (via Smart Update) my TM external hard drive to a second external hard drive to use as off-site backup. This would only happen every few months, so I don't mind turning off TM for this to occur.

Is this capability in the cards for the upcoming Leopard version of SD!?

Thanks!

We will be able to copy a Time Machine volume, yes.

Glad to hear it!

Will it take a ridiculously long time considering all the multi-linked files?

It can take quite a long time, yes...
