This is WONDERFUL news! Now, I just have one more question: I'm thinking about purchasing a 1 TB external drive and I want to do the following:

Create a 500 GB bootable GUID partition on my new 1 TB drive for a SuperDuper! bootable image (~500 GB) and then use the rest of the space for extra storage (regular partition). From the other thread it seems that I can partition my 1 TB drive into two parts: a bootable GUID partition for my SuperDuper! image and then just another partition for my regular extra storage.

Am I correct in my thinking that this can be easily done?
