No and no (as far as I can tell). I'm now using a Keyboard Maestro macro to select the "Quit SuperDuper!" menu item as a workaround.

Wow, I agree with Andrew, and am surprised improving visibility could cause problems.

I use an AppleScript script at startup to do some things, including not loading Dropbox if booted from a clone. Something like that could be used to indicate the boot drive is a clone.

Thanks, Dave. Sorry to bother you with something I could have solved by reading the log.

I'll make the change you suggest. For some reason, that has never been an issue before SD 3.0 & APFS.

Sorry, it was 3.0B6 that I was running. The log is attached, dated 2017-10-31. SD 3.0B7 did report an error, and its log is also attached, dated 2017-11-02.

SD 3.0B7 successfully backed up an APFS boot drive to an APFS backup drive today, but the after-backup script still fails (silently) to run.

Probably irrelevant, but I found a USB 3 external drive was unbootable when plugged into a USB 3 hub, but bootable when plugged directly into my iMac.

I think SuperDuper! 2.7 is seriously under-reporting the amount copied. In my case, copying a 39GB VM file was reported as 5GB.

Okay, I switched to just one symlink on my boot SSD to the entire Users folder on the HDD. I do like that better, simpler. Actually, I thought I already tried that initially, but ran into problems....

At the moment, I use SuperDuper! to back up my main HDD to a backup HDD. I can then boot to the backup HDD to run maintenance on the main HDD, or to do throwaway test installs or other...
