Scotti:

I don't have any plans to turn SuperDuper! into what you're calling a "true" backup program, at least in the near term. Adding that type of thing adds complexity without necessarily adding a lot of value for most users. (Not all, but most.)

I think the experience you had with bad ram would be as likely to corrupt any backup media, really. In general, the solution to this type of ultra-catasrophic situation is to have more than one clone, and rotate between them once a week or so. That protects you even more, and still provides you with a mechanism to do a quick, painless recovery -- something no backup program that provides "archived" backups can really do.

Another technique is to do both. Have a full rollback-style backup, and ALSO have a clone. Best of all worlds...
