I read the FAQ about how to exclude everything, then tell SuperDuper! to copy specific files. The question is will this same script work from two different volumes?

I would like to run a Scheduled Smart Update to backup ONLY my iTunes folder on my Boot drive and my iPhoto folder on my Media drive (a Volume attached via USB) to a Backup Drive.

I have selected the script values as follows.

(ignore) *
(ignore) .*
(copy) Users/Username/Music
(copy) Volumes/Media Drive/Photos/iPhoto

I am asking, as this is a Terabyte of data and the script builder doesn't show the entire path in the second item (it's a bit of a drag to play trial and error).

Thanks for your help with this.

You can't combine items from different drives like this... only one volume at a time (the one selected from the source pop-up).
