Thanks again!

The boot volume is SAMMY but there's no SAMMY in the finder, only Macintosh HD.

Well, just to beef up the picture, my iMac with a 5400 RPM drive has become slow. I was looking into the possibility to boot from an SSD in USB 3.0 enclosure. I have more data on the internal drive that a 250 GB SSD can hold so I was evaluating the sandbox first. In the future a more standard setup would be moving the big iTunes and iPhoto libraries out of the internal drive to an external one and keep all the system apps and docs in a superduper clone as the primary boot drive SSD, USB 3.0 (I can't find any thunderbolt case so far).

During my tests I will keep TM OFF on both the sandbox and the internal drive until I decide what's better for me, yesterday it took ages to sync TM so I have learned my lesson.. :-)

In any case superduper is fantastic!

Best Regards
Pasha
