Hi all,

my mum and step-dad are about to take their first steps at building a backup regime with their iMac and have two accounts on the machine - one for him, one for her. They'll be getting SuperDuper! on my recommendation so that if they have problems I can talk them through it, but their first question stumped me:

When logged into any given account, will SD backup both accounts at the same time, or does that require specific settings in SD, or does it require running SD twice, once in each account?

Cheers!

When "Backup - all files" run, all files are backed up, including all local accounts.
