Thanks for the reply!

This is only data (photos, movies, etc) that is (are?) being saved for posterity, so I'm much more concerned about having backups copies than ease of retrieval of the data. In addition, the drives are in a Mac format anyway, so I can just remove it from the Vista box and throw it into the Mac Pro if the volume goes south.

Do I need to "mount" the volume that I want to write to in OSX in order for SuperDuper to be able to backup to it? If so, any hints on how to do that, or could you point me to any resources?

I've been searching Google, but I suspect that I don't even know what terms to be searching on, as my results have so far not been applicable to what I want to do.

I mapped a drive in Vista to my Mac volume, and used the built-in command-line tool Robocopy to copy everything over the network at gigabit speeds and it was fast enough for me. I'd like to automate the process if possible, of course, and since I own SuperDuper anyway I may as well try to bend it to my needs .
