Auto launch & execute?

Is there any method to launch and execute SuperDuper? Command line flag?

I'm aware you are working on scheduled execution. In the mean time is there a manual work around?

I imagine one could launch SuperDuper via a settings file, and have QuicKeys complete the transaction. However I'd prefer a command line solution, thus it would be easier to handle volume/drive mounting etc.

Also, launching the app via "sudo" does not appear to eliminate the need to supply the admin name and password? Is there a work around for this?

Well, a little more digging uncovered the use of "SVUclone" and its various arguments. I'm sure as a supplier you might be a little leary of us using the tool set without sufficient documentation (or insight).

Just thought I'd ask if there was a preferred work around until "scheduling" was added. Please reply privately if this is too big a can of worms.

Don't use the cloner directly -- it'd be a mistake, seriously.

Instead, wait a little while for our AppleScript support, coming in the very next version... you'll then be able to put together a temporary (or even permanent) scheduled solution!

(Note that the AppleScript support is NOT 'scheduling', it's one of the steps on the way to it. Scheduling, as I've said, is in the next major version -- this version builds on what we've got to provide the framework we need for scheduling, and you can use it to do things even more sophisticated, simply by scripting... I think you'll be very happy.)

Thanks for the prompt reply. (yes, I understand the distinction between scripting and scheduling)

I'm sure I'll be happy with the scripting. I was just hoping to get started with the automation aspect as soon as possible. Sigh.
