Sd tm apfs sxs


Any recommendations on backing up using Time Machine and SuperDuper side by side (SXS) on the same disk and using APFS for the SuperDuper backup?

[I have two separate drives and rotate one offsite weekly, in addition to continuous cloud backup for important work]

In the past, I always used one HFS drive for both TM and SD and it worked out just fine.

I read Practice Makes Perfect, but didn't really see an answer there, other than "don't be a Goofus".

From near as I can tell, the options are to stay with one giant HFS volume (ie, not use APFS) or split the drive into two partitions: one for TM on HFS and the other for SD on APFS.
