View Full Version : Using SuperDuper to clone multiple drives

I've used SuperDuper for several years to clone my Macintosh HD; and I love it.

I've recently bought several external drives to store old files that I have on DVD since I've read that DVDs may not last as long as originally thought. Since I am a compulsive back-up kind of guy, I have two external drives and a backup for each of those -- 4 altogether -- 2 pairs. I want to keep two exact copies of each set of backups on these drives.

I've looked over the documentation ... probably not in depth ... but my question is: Is SuperDuper meant to clone only one drive or can you keep three drives with their separate clones going all the time? If so, how is the best way to do that?

You can copy as many drives to as many destinations as you like, one at a time (or schedule all of them). Just make sure you have partitions on the destination to copy to.
