Hi Dave..

I was wondering if you had any early thoughts on how/if SuperDuper would work with the new iMac Fusion Drive.

It sounds intriguing, right up until something goes boom and a am not able to restore from my SD Clone...

It sounds entirely dynamic, so you'd just be backing it up normally. But no detailed information isn't available, and we can't get one of the Macs until late next month.

Did a backup of my Mac Mini Fusion Drive to an external OWC drive via Firewire. No apparent problems operating from the clone.

Yep - it should be just fine.
