Schedule SuperDuper?

I just bought SuperDuper and it looks like it will do just what I want, which is to store and image file on an external HD so I can dump it back on my system the next time things go wrong.

Anyway, my question: Is there a way to schedule SuperDuper? I'd love to be able to have it smart update my image in the middle of the night without me have to run in manually. I didn't see scheduling built in, is it in the scripts? is it AppleScriptable?

Thanks, selch.

SuperDuper! is not yet schedule-able, but will be in the next major release. We're working on it as I type.

It's not currently AppleScriptable, but that's coming as well, and may appear in a minor release prior to scheduling...

Scheduling SuperDuper! with iCal

Now that SuperDuper! can be driven from an AppleScript it becomes trivial to use iCal to activate these scripts on a scheduled basis. Setting things up couldn't be easier....

a) Launch SuperDuper!

b) Configure SuperDuper! to have the desired properties for a backup.

c) Save the configuration using the SaveAs option in the File menu.

d) Click on the AppleScript found in the SuperDuper! folder.

e) Modify the AppleScript so that it references the saved configuration file.

f) Save the AppleScript as an application.

g) Quit SuperDuper!

h) Launch iCal.

i) Select an appropriate view, say weekly.

j) Double click on the date and time when the backup should run.

k) Select the "open file" option for the "alarm" property, and direct it to point to the AppleScript file saved in step f above.

l) You're on your way!
