Backup to AirPort Disk without sparse image - will it be around eventually?

Hi, sorry if this has been posted before.

I use four AirPort disks and three of them act as backup disks. I have been using SuperDuper for some time, but after the introduction of AirPort disks I have been looking around for something else because:

1) I can't backup FROM an AirPort disk

2) I can't backup TO an AirPort disk

...and obviously backup from one AirPort disk to another is out of the question as well. Except if I use the sparse image method, which makes all my stuff a lot less available, especially because I have 2 TB of files I would like to have on that disk as files on the disk, not on an image etc...

I use "Data Backup" from Prosoft now, works like it should so far. AirPort disks are treated like any other disks.

However - I would like to use SuperDuper instead because it's a much nicer app really.

Will this feature be around eventuelly??

Although you can't back up from an Airport Disk, we certainly do support them, but only through an image. There's no plan to change this -- please see the "Airport Disks" post at for the reason, which is difficult to get around.

Data Backup can only back up to these disks by either not really backing up the metadata or using its own storage format...
