On my mac system I setup a ZFS drive using the ZFS drivers from http://zfs.macosforge.org/. I want to backup the ZFS drive using Super Duper but it's not seeing the drive. Is there a way to make Super Duper see the drive or is there planned support for ZFS in the near future?

If and when ZFS becomes the standard file system for Mac OS X. Until then, supporting it doesn't make much business sense...

Ok. Thanks.

By standard you don't mean supported I'm gathering. ZFS read/write file system support is supported in Snow Leopard (http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/snowleopard/) and ZFS read support is supported in the current leopard.

That's right, I don't mean just supported (since FAT16/32 and NTFS are "supported" in that sense). I mean if/when ZFS becomes the standard file system...
