The external drive is USB and not bootable; my bootable clone is on a Firewire drive on another machine. We're talking Applications archives here, not emergency clone; the more-frequent temporary Users-only backup just happens to be on the same USB drive as my archives because there's lots of room on it. But I didn't make that clear. Sorry.

Make sense?
It does. Somehow I missed seeing the "Exclude all files" script. I'll have another look. Thanks for your help!
