Partition Question (& General Question)

Hi,

Super Duper has come highly recommended to me and I have downloaded the free trial ... haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I had a couple questions before I went ahead to purchase.

What I have: PowerMac with 2 Int HDs (250 & 300) and a Lacie FW 200 GB and a PowerBook with a 80 GB HD.

Can I partition my external drive and create two bootable copies (one from PowerMac and one from PowerBook) ? Or am I limited to one bootable backup per external drive ?

And: if I purchase Super Duper now, will I be getting free upgrade to version 2.0 ? Or should I wait ?

Thanks ...

(I may have more questions, so I won't say "that's all" for now)

Damon

Hi, Damon.

You can definitely partition the drive and create two bootable copies. Just plug the drive into the machine you want to back up and direct it to the proper volume (partition).

v2.0 will be a free upgrade. See my blog for full details and a sneak preview.

Hello,

Thanks for the information. I am new to the Mac ... recent convert. Not sure how it all works, just yet. Slowly figuring it out. I need some time to sit down and get everything organized.

Thanks for your input.

Damon

It won't take long, Damon. And if you have any more questions, just ask!
