Hi there,

I'm looking into purchasing SuperDuper - here's what I'd like to do:

I've got a MacPro with 2 internal hard drives.
1 boot drive with apps
1 media drive with my music, photos, etc.
1 external FW drive

I would like to backup the complete media drive to a browsable backup on the external AND (here comes the actual question) include 1 folder of the boot drive into the backup routine. (Background: I'd like to also backup my iTunes library which resides on the boot drive)

Is it possible to have SuperDuper
a) mirror my media drive
AND
b) include the iTunes folder to the external backup drive as well?


Thanks,
Christian

By having two partitions on the backup, one for each source volume you're copying, Christian. (And I'd strongly suggest backing up both volumes in full, rather than being selective.)

Hmmm - worked like a charm... Thanks.
