It surprised me as well and I wondered if using an SSD for backup effectively releases the brakes, allowing the CPU to race up like that. Time Machine is backing up to a separate drive that isn't SSD...

CPU temperature during backup

I imagine this is all deemed safe and within tolerances but I've been surprised at how hot the CPU becomes on my new mini during backups with SuperDuper. On the old Mac Pro it sits at around 50C,...

Yes I think keeping it unencrypted in this case may be the best option. The video card is supposed to be fully compatible, but in practice creates all sorts of difficulties. For example, I cannot run...

I assume you suggest using an SSD for SD because it...

SuperDuper folder(s)

For some reason that makes no sense my boot drive seems to have dropped about 70 gigs in free space recently. I know drive space goes up ad down a little on High Sierra, but this seems excessive.
