Feature Request: Idiot Filter

Hi there

First of all, thanks for the wonderful software that is SuperDuper! I like it very much indeed.

But, I have almost managed to trash an external hard drive with it - twice. I have an external Lacie drive which is divided into two partitions; one for my SuperDuper clone, and one just for general "stuff" that won't fit on my main HD. On each occasion, I started SuperDuper after I had selected the wrong partition as a target. Fortunately on both occasions I figured out what was going on before it was too late, and was able to restore the "wrong" target to its proper state... but it was messy.

Okay, I know this is my fault, not SuperDuper's fault, and that you're probably thinking that some kind of idiot would make that mistake not just once, but twice. But, you see, I am an idiot, and I have to live with that. It's not easy.

So, I think a good feature in SuperDuper would be the ability in the preferences to exclude certain external drives from appearing in the "target" drop down box on the SuperDuper main screen.

You could call it an "idiot filter".
