SuperDuper! causing overheating

While I realize SuperDuper is processor intensive...I just want to make sure it's not causing unnecessary hardware stress. Every time it runs my fan speed (on a late 2008 solid aluminum MacBook)...

I've been thinking about this some more...I may go buy another portable Passport Studio and just dedicate it to SD. That still keeps things simple. It wouldn't be all that smart to put both backups...

Dave,

I think it's a perspective issue on my end. Before I explain, understand that when I first purchased SD I was a working geek and dotcom owner and time was the most precious commodity I had....

Dave,

Then that won't work for me...it's not what I want. I understand that SuperSuper! backs up everything...but it's not what I want. The primary data that I want to never ever lose again is...

It might take me a bit longer than as I'm on USB 2.0 with one of the new WD Passport Studio drives...I'll try it and find out. Why Apple didn't put a Firewire port on the new MacBooks is still a...

I'd thought about that but figured the "Evaluating Files" part of the backup might take a lot of time. Once the initial backup is done and considering there is very little change each day, how long...

If Time Machine is doing its hourly updates to an external drive and SuperDuper! starts a SMART Update of my user files going to that same drive...what happens? Does SuperDuper! sense the drive is...

2. "Backup - user files"...
