"last copy"

In the "Scheduled Copies" pane, it lists the date and time of the last copy from one volume to another under the "Last Copy" list heading. BUT, that's really the last scheduled copy that was executed. Not the last copy that was executed. That is, if you manually command a copy in the main "SuperDuper!" pane, from one volume to another, by pressing "Copy Now" in that pane, that copy won't be registered in that "Last Copy" list, and the last copy date/time between those volumes in that list doesn't change.

No problem with that, but it's just good to know. Maybe the "Last Copy" heading in the "Scheduled Copies" pane would better be called "Last Scheduled Copy"? Or maybe that "Last Copy" list should somehow be aware of manual copies?

I should note that if you press "Copy Now" in the "Scheduled Copies" pane, it WILL update the "Last Copy" list. So "Copy Now" works a bit differently in different places.

This came to light as I routinely look at that "Last Copy" list to check on backup completion. But I had an instance where there was an automatic update, and I was logged out. Super Duper quit, and it wasn't doing regular updates. So when I logged back in, I just did a backup manually, but the list didn't change. The "Last Copy" list was no longer an accurate record of the backups.
