SuperDuper with multidrive system
Hi all,

Have been using SD since day 1 of my Macs and find it invaluable, especially in times of crisis and upgrade.

I have since changed my config with an SSD for MacOS and 2nd internal drive for data.

I have SDed them both onto an external drive with 2 partitions. When I boot from the external system partition, the data it's accessing is still from the internal disk. With Lion coming out, I would like to be able to boot from the external disk completely - OS and data.

Is there a way of doing this?

Name the data drive the same as its source volume, Darius.

Thanks Dave. Just so I'm clear on the process please can you confirm if my understanding below is correct:

Macbook Pro has 2 internal drives - System and Data.

These are both cloned to an external drive with two partitions SDSystem and SDData.

I boot from SDSystem but am still accessing Data. So I rename Data to something else and then rename SDData to Data.

Is that right?

You don't even have to rename Data to something else (but you can if you want to); it *should* mount the external before the internal and reference that one (you can check the other volume's mount point to see if it mounted as "Data 1" as it should).
