We elected to combine the 4th and 5th "weeks" into one, so if you have five Mondays in a single week and you choose the 4th week, you'll get two backups. We thought it better to do too many than too few, and there are seldom "5th" weeks. "Every Monday" will be every Monday, regardless of week (if all are selected).

And any backup that's not "ready" when the time comes (for whatever reason) will be skipped. If the computer is on and the drive isn't there, we leave SuperDuper! up with the Scheduled Copies window open (and red) so you can tell something has gone wrong.

If you erase-and-restore you do lay down unfragmented files. The "directory", though, is not unfragmented/optimized.

Finally, we don't do two-way sync. While you can copy one way, only use the other and then copy the other way, the source always wins, so conflicts can be a problem if you're not careful.
