Newbie Questions...

Hi, I am currently using Backup 3, and considering a switch over to SuperDuper for a variety of reasons.

But there are some functions in BU3 that I like, and wonder if/how they translate in SuperDooper.

Backup 3 does not allow for the backing up of applications. This may be a good thing (as I understand applications are best when installed through their native installer programs). However BU3 does allow me to back-up my settings for applications like Mail and Safari as well as preferences for other applications.

From what I understand SuperDuper saves your whole hard drive (applications included). If you reboot your drive from a SuperDuper backup you copy over everything including your applications (rather than re-installing them). Will this impact certain applications like Mail and Address Book? Is there a recommended procedure for this?
