View Full Version : Time Machine vs Superduper

09-18-2008, 01:19 PM
I have OS 10.5.4 on dvd and have updated to OS 10.5.5 via download from Apple. As I understand to do a complete recovery with Time Machine I have to start up with the OS 10.5.4 dvd. So when recovery is done am I correct in assuming I will be back to 10.5.4 and have to update again to 10.5.5.
If so, this would be a compelling reason to use Superduper because it would restore with any updates installed after the version on the install dvd.
Comments and clarification will be appreciated.

I don't think that starting from an older DVD means that version of OS X is what's installed during a Time Machine restore.

But, that said, recovery from a SuperDuper backup is much faster, since you just restart from the backup...
