I've made a HUGE mistake! :eek:

Jumping to the conclution that smartupdate would simply make an exact copy of my source drive on the destination i woke up today only to find 10 years, or 150 GB worth of files missing.

Most of these I can live without, but some are VITAL...

I assume superduper doesn't zerowrite the disk, so perhaps my files are still there. How does SuperDuper delete the files when smartupdate is run?

Anyone have a clue how i could get them back?

Ack! Try using Data Rescue II -- since we just delete them "normally", it has a good change of recovering what you've lost.
