"Run SuperDuper! Settings" ?
 
I'm using 10.11.6, and SD 3.3.1.

Never noticed this before, but when I right click on a folder, I'm given the option of "Run SuperDuper! Settings." Duh, what? I select that, and a funny gear appears for a few seconds in the menubar, and then nothing.

What is this about? I gather this is in the contextual menu. Why does this selection appear, and what is it really offering to do? How might this be useful?

It's designed to let you run a SuperDuper settings file (.sdsp) from the context menu using sdautomatedcopycontroller (so, effectively, like a schedule).

Thank you. I see that was written up in the 9/18 Technical Update.

So this Finder extension lets you run settings files. I assume the way this works is that you right click on the setting file (.sdsp) and "Run SuperDuper! Settings" in order to do that? That is Automator-able. Very nice.

Yup - the idea was to show people how to use the copy controller (as explained in that old post).
