Using SuperDuper on a Digital Audio Workstation

I have a recording studio, at the centre of which is a G5 running Steinbergs Nuendo. There are many associated plug-ins for virtual instruments and studio effects like reverberation. Some of these are copy protected by a USB dongle, others require a challege/response type authorisation.

My main hard drive failed recently and so did my backup strategy; hence I am now looking for a more robust backup system, and have been interested in safety clones offered by Superduper.

Many audio workstations have two drives, one for system and the other for audio files and samples which are accessed by the sequencer software and virtual instruments. I'm trying to imagine the implications of booting from a safety clone; for example will software authorisations work, what will be the reduction in efficiency in terms of the number of audio tracks that can be played back etc. If anyone could shed any light, I would be grateful.

One final point with regard to Tiger issues. Please could you confirm that bootable clones and smart update will work reliably. Many thanks
