Have you given any consideration to a command line version of SuperDuper!?

It would be nice to be able to log in remotely using Terminal and initiate a backup job.

Not something that would likely be terribly popular, Rob, but it is something that we've considered.

If the goal is to have SD! do a scripted backup, can't you trigger that from the Terminal with:

$ open -a SuperDuper! /Applications/SuperDuper\!.app/Contents/Resources/Copy\ Scripts/MyDeluxeBackupScript.dset

That should handle a lot of real-world occasions.

The actual pathname would depend on the name of your script and where you had stashed it, but you get the idea.

No, that won't work. You can write an AppleScript to load some settings and run them (after all, that's what the scheduler does), but it's not headless.

Wokay. VNC then, for when you are off somewhere and just feeling spontaneous.
