Just FYI, I'm using Monterey 12.2.1 on a 2021 M1 iMac. Would like to figure this out. I would sure like to see an "I did THIS backup" notification. Without that, I have to launch SuperDuper and...

Well, I'm a little baffled. The notification I see doesn't give any from- and to- information about a SuperDuper backup. It just says that some backup has succeeded. So if SuperDuper is supposed to...

That's true about notifications, but if you have multiple backups, the notification doesn't tell you which one was actually completed.

Ah, I see that checkbox, and it was not checked. Maybe I accidentally unchecked it? The disk at issue is a new SSD, and I'm writing to two partitions on it. A "weekly" partition, and a "daily"...

I can't be sure, but I don't think the volume was missing from SuperDuper. Certainly the volume was mounted on the machine, as the first clue I had that this was happening was when opened the volume...

So I run SuperDuper 3.4B4 on my Mountain Lion laptop, and I get a "Unable to detect new versions" error pane. I am therein offered a "Manual Check" button. I press that, and a "This version check...

Interesting. So SuperDuper 3.5 will run on Silicon, but the license verification package won't! That's a bummer. I'll buy my update shortly.

In your blog, you say "Users on Apple silicon systems with older (pre-2019 or so) licenses will need to either purchase a new license or run under Rosetta." But I think I have an old license, and yet...

no more bootable backups???

Maybe I'm missing something, but how do you do a bootable backup with SuperDuper? I spent a decade or so on Mountain Lion, and it worked beautifully. Now I've migrated to Big Sur and I can't get my...

need to have Admin privileges

Yep, tried that last night and it worked. In order to do unsupervised scheduled backups with Big Sur, you need to give yourself Administrator privileges. Quite bizarre. Thanks for figuring that out.

Well, it worked fine last night, so maybe it just does that unexpected prompting occasionally. I'll just cross my fingers.

Pardon all my questions, but migration to Big Sur is proceeding a bit haltingly. Your 3.5-beta3 seems to be working very well, but I have a question about copying without password authentication.
