Question A few simple questions...

I have owned SD for several years and finally had courage to really try it out after a disastrous episode. And yes, never used the Time Machine because the backup process every hour is more then i want and also it seemed to really slow down my iMac even though it has a 3.06GHz processor.

Using SD I cloned my iMac's main hard drive to one of the three external FireWire drives ( Main drive=one terabyte with less then 20% used and FW drive=500GB ). My first attempt went smoothly although there is a lot to learn for this old goof.

When i restarted from the iMac to the external FW drive all the drive icon's lined up exactly as they were when i am in the main iMac. In other words, the start up drive i booted into was not at the top and i was not even sure i was signed in the external FW drive. I used Disk Utility to confirm which drive i was signed into.

Why ? Or is that a result of the cloning processs.

Also want to know, does SD maintain a log of the backups it performed ?

Also want to know, how or what settings do i select to do a mirrored backups ?
