Script to incrementally backup 6 partitions?

I had thought that after registering, we would be using Applescript.
Apparently there is an internal scripting language?
Could you give an example script for backing up 6 volumes, upon command, to a second hard drive with 6 similar partitions?
case 1, incremental
case 2, complete replacement
and where does one store the script(s)?
Thank you.

Script to incrementally backup 6 partitions ...

So, I gather that I can build upon the DailyBackup.scpt by repeating it with different source and destination pairs.
But I don't see how to insert those pairs...
The Applescript Dictionary seems quite barren.
and I looked in ~/Library/Application Support/SuperDuper!/Saved Settings, and found that folder empty.
It doesn't seem to get a file stored after a backup operation.
I note that if I toss the SD folder from AppS., SuperDuper will start up with blank settings.
Maybe they are invisible?
Where can I find a sample settings file?
...Al

Save your own settings... (File > Save).

getting there ...

Thanks, I found that page in the manual (R-T-F-M).

Now I'm struggling with why it only made it past two of six replications of the Daily Backup.applescript.

I also need to simplify it to a loop thru the several settings files...

SD seems to hang in a completed state for quite a while after doing a partition. I don't suppose there's any active signal available from SD to Applesoft to say, "done with that one". Oh - I set "And Finally..." to Quit SuperDuper!, but it doesn't seem to quit.

seems to hang...

after doing the first partition clone (using your "daily backup") it seems that SuperDuper wants to hang waiting for the OK button?
I see in the Applescript dictionary:
status (idle/running/done/error, r/o) : Returns SuperDuper's current status
What is the definition of "done"? When does status become done?

What I generally do is wait until it's not "running"...
