Question SuperDuper! with PGP Whole Disk Encryption?

Hello.

I searched a lot on the subject but I didn't find the answer.

If you can help feel free!

I currently have a MBP with the internal drive wholy encrypted with PGP WDE 10.0.0. What I want is a bootable external hard drive identical in every way to my internal drive (ie. bootable + encrypted). So if my internal drive crashes, I just take the external hard drive off its enclosure, put it in the MBP, power on and everything will be like the original crashed drive ***WITH THE PGP PROMPT AT BOOT***, and including all the files up-to-date.

So my question is : can SuperDuper! do this?

SuperDuper! does not currently support PGPWDE 10. They've made some changes to the way the data is stored, and we need to change SD! to support the new files, etc.

It will work with PGPWDE 9, however.

For each, the procedure is pretty simple: you'll erase the destination drive, encrypt the empty drive with PGPWDE, then make a "Backup - all files" with "Smart Update".

But, again, this won't work with PGPWDE 10 until we add support for it (it was released after the release of 2.6.2).

Ok! But since PGPWDE 9 doesn't support MacOSX 10.6, I cannot use PGPWDE 9. They released 10.0 especially to support 10.6.

If I make a "Backup - all files", will it include boot sectors? I mean, the external disk will be bootable with the PGP prompt?

It blesses the drive, which is encrypted, and should prompt at the point that it loads its stuff.

PGP WDE support, please, I'll pay!

I've been so happy with SD for years and years. I think you should charge something for a version 3 upgrade. However, I NEED PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE) v10.0.1 support. Since you were compatible with 9.9, please bring it online soon!

For version 9 from last year, did Smart Update work correctly, or does it copy the whole disk every time?

Just so I understand, does this mean that every PGPWDE backup done with Superduper copies all files, not just new and changed ones, the way Smart Update normally does?

No. It works just like a normal Smart Update.

Hi Dave or Bruce,

I'm currently running Mountain Lion (10.8.2) and have PGP WDE v10.2.1 MP4 (build 4961) with my internal drive encrypted. In the past, when Superduper! did not support v10, we had to use Carbon Copy Cloner. So even though we purchased 20-30 licenses for all the staff, we were using CCC because it had supported PGP v10. Now that your team has released SD! v2.7.1, does this include support for PGP WDE v10? If so, is there anything special that I will need to do in SD! to eliminate it from backing up the PGPWDE01 and 02 files from the / of my external drive (that is encrypted also) when I do a Smart Backup?

If SD! supports this, we would prefer to use this rather than purchase a new license for CCC in order to do the same thing.

Thanks,
Joe

I believe 2.7.1 works fine with PGPWDE, Joe.
