Hello guys,

I am trying out SuperDuper, I am new to mac, doing my transition from windows to mac, now I have all my files in an external WD 1TB NTFS hard drive, I bought a new 2tb WD external HD which is JFS.

Now I am trying to copy files from not just my 1TB but other HD laying around to merge them all into my 2TB, but for some reason that I don't know SuperDuper won't recognize the WD 1TB external on the copy from drop down menu, but it shows up on the copy files to drop down menu.

Any help??

Thanks

We only copy HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) volumes, Tulile.

so there is no way to use superduper to copy my 1tb ntfs to 2tb HFS+??

That's correct: if it's not HFS+, we can't copy it. But you can just drag-and-drop with Finder, since you're not exactly trying to preserve metadata, etc.

I was trying to do with an utility that would verify each file, that was my main reason to do it with SuperDuper, as I am paranoid with losing data

Thanks
