How to backup two drives onto one USB drive
I have two drives on my Mac. One with the operating system and the 2nd now houses the documents folder / desktop etc.

I want to use my superduper to backup both drives to one external firewire drive. How do you recommend I do that? Thanks.

Partition the external drive into two volumes, one for each source, and schedule two backups, one from each source to its corresponding destination.

Hello there,

I've been given a 128MB pen drive that already had some files on it, I don't really want these files and would like to delete them, but there is a problem!

The pen drive appears to have two partitions, the first one containing the files appears in Windows as a cd-rom drive, and as such can't delete the files.

In Windows XP I can get the following properties: (G: being the CD-rom partition)
CBM1180A Flash Disk USB Device (G:)
CBM1180A Flash Disk UCB Device
-------Generic Volume (H:)
Properties of G: DVD/CD-Rom Drives (Standard CD-Rom Drives)

In Windows 98 I get the following:
---CBM1180A Flash Disk F:
USB Disk
---CBM1180A Flash Disk G:

Is there any way I can delete this CD-Rom partition, and merge into one partition that I can use?

Not with SuperDuper!: you seem to be using Windows here...
