I am registered SuperDuper 2.5 user. I backup my Mac Pro daily. Tonight I decided to upgrade Mac OS 10.4.11 to Leopard. Before upgrading I disabled the SuperDuper schedule because I wanted to make sure the Leopard upgrade was successful before my scheduled daily backup ran. So my question is this. If the upgrade to Leopard was successful, how should I do the first backup of the freshly upgraded hard drive? Should I just reenable the schedule, or should I do an erase and backup, and then reenable the schedule?

Thanks...

I'd do an erase-then-copy, then delete and recreate the schedule.

What's the difference between doing erase using Disk Utility and then using SuperDuper to copy, then choosing erase-then-copy from SuperDuper?

We'll preserve the backup volume's UUID.
