Where did you feel it implied it was going to "create a folder on the drive for the backup"?
I've been using SuperDuper for a long time for imaging my internal drive. I think the idea of a folder was more something that I assumed. As I said, I don't blame the application or the developer, at all. I think that sometimes you get to running on auto pilot and don't pay any attention to the words.

I guess what might have saved me was if it had done a check on the drive to see if it had previously used it for a back up. If not, have a big pop-up that says, "You are about to erase everything on Drive XXXXXX. Are you sure you want to do this?" Then, it gets to be a pain for people who know what's going on. Maybe a check box to disable the warning?
