Daily Schedule

However, I could absolutely not believe that in this polished application this means: writing an apple script (which I don't kno how to do, remember "the rest of us" includes me) and then configuring cron. Do I really have to use 2 additional applications (apple script, cron) and actually code the necessary steps (via apple script and terminal or CronniX) in order to perform a simple scheduled backup with SuperDuper. Please tell me that this is not true. Thank you very much for a reply.
I totally agree here. I just purchased SuperDuper last night and found that there is no option for a daily schedule that I can find. I would love to tell me computer to perform a daily smart backup at x am/pm every day so I don't have to remember. Besides, I can't script and am new to Mac's.
