Hi, I'm new to the forum with a quick question before I buy.

I'm planning to consolidate all my media onto a single 1TB-5400 RPM-USB 2 drive and use SuperDuper to back it up to another identical drive.

I expect the first back-up will take a long time, which is fine, but I'm curious about the scheduled back-ups later.

I anticipate maybe adding a less than a GB a day (at the most) to the media drive by ripping my DVD collection. Using the Smart Update feature it seems that only new information will be added to the back-up drive, correct?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as I'd like to get started this weekend.

Thanks, doolybug

Any changes made to the source drive (including new and modified files) will be copied to the destination. Any removed files will be removed.
