Thanks. The point, of course, is that every time I go use my Mac, I'm not going to go to "About This Mac" and see who I'm booted from.

The "On Successful Completion" is just about what happens when you MAKE the clone. Not when you boot from it.

That's exactly right that a clone is precisely that. It's whole purpose in life is to make a boot that looks exactly like your original boot. So that's why this is more a system issue than a SuperDuper issue. SuperDuper is doing exactly what it's supposed to do. But it would be nice if the system made it more prominent which disk/partition you were booting from. I guess my question was whether there was such an option to make it conspicuous.
