View Full Version : Newbie to Mac & SD, Configuration Help

03-19-2008, 10:05 PM
I have 4 750GB internal drives in my Mac Pro (2 for dedicated for data and 2 dedicated for backups) with the data drives containing about 350GB each. I would like to use SuperDuper! to backup my all files on my boot drive, and have Time Machine backing up documents.

Can you give me your advice as to best configure this?

I think you'd want to use one of the backup drives for SD! and one for TM... unless I misunderstand your configuration.

Thanks for the reply

So I have these for use
A. Mac HD 1 < Boot, Applications, Home Folder
B. Mac HD 2 < Mostly file archive

So your suggesting
C. Backup HD 1 < SD: both A and B drives in Sparceimages
D. Backup HD 2 < Time Machine: Drive A & B

No, I'm suggesting that you partition backup HD 1 into two volumes, one for each source drive (HD1/HD2) and then use HD2 for Time Machine.
