Hi all,

I have a question regarding SuperDuper and whether it can support my backup needs. I have a home network with a couple of Macs, an Ubuntu box and a Windows box. If I run SuperDuper from one of the Macs, am I also able to backup files from the Mac that SuperDuper is run from; as well as backing up files from the other Mac, Ubuntu and Windows boxes?

Cheers,
Diego

No, Diego: we can't back up files from network drives.

Thanks for the response, Dave. If that's the case, if I want to run SuperDuper! on more than one Mac, do I need more than one license? This is for personal use (just myself), but I would like to use SuperDuper to backup more than one Mac.

Cheers,
Diego

If it's just you, and your Mac(s), one license is sufficient. If the other Mac(s) are used by others, you should get additional licenses.

Yep, it's just me and my Macs. Thanks.
