I've just downloaded the new version of SuperDuper! and it looks like there are new options for creating backups of data. I've always been very happy using the smart update but I just wondered if there is any reason why it would be better to opt for copy newer files or copy different files? I am presuming this is faster somehow but what is the difference in practice if you just want a reliable cloned backup copy?

Copy Newer and Copy Different have always been there. In general, they're for special case situations and shouldn't be used for normal backups: you should be using Smart Update.

That shows how long it's been since I last looked at the backup options. Smart update has always worked so I am happy to stick with that.
