SuperDuper!

3.3.1
07 February 2020

Advanced disk cloning/recovery utility.

Overview

SuperDuper! is an advanced, yet easy to use disk copying program. It can, of course, make a straight copy, or "clone" -- useful when you want to move all your data from one machine to another, or do a simple backup. In moments, you can completely duplicate your boot drive to another drive, partition, or image file.

Clones for safety. To ensure you can safely roll back a system after the unexpected occurs. With a few clicks, you can easily "checkpoint" your system, preserving your computer's critical applications and files while you run on a working, bootable copy. If anything goes wrong, just reboot to the original. When you do, your current Documents, Music, Pictures -- even iSync data -- are available! You can get back to work immediately.

Clones for industry! SuperDuper has enough features to satisfy the advanced user, too. Its simple-but-powerful Copy Script feature allows complete control of exactly what files get copied, ignored, even aliased ("soft linked" for the Unix inclined) from one drive to another.

What's new in SuperDuper!

Version 3.3.1:
  • Lets you ignore "missing drive" errors during scheduled copies, and also improves Smart Wake, which ensures your backups happen whether your Mac is awake or asleep...and won't turn on your screen if your Mac is already awake.
  • Improves Smart Delete, an awesome new capability that minimizes the possibility of disk full errors while maintaining safety with no speed penalty, native Notification Center support, a Finder extension to quickly run copies, and other improvements. SuperDuper can even create and copy from snapshots, which means with an APFS backup drive, you can restore today's Smart Update, yesterday's, etc! It's super cool.
  • Interface confirms all your actions in simple, clear language to ensure that the end result is exactly what you intended. Take a look, and click for additional screen shots!

Great cloning features, recently had my MacBook Pro in for a screen/logic board replacement ... I secure erased my storage, but restoring all of it was just so time consuming that I looked for a clone solution. Time Machine restored things nicely, but all apps and most of my iCloud and other settings needed adjusting making the TM backup a little bit confusing. Now that I have a clone backup of my MacBook Pros' storage - I am wondering if there are clear instructions on how to proceed to restore the cloned drive back onto my built in storage in macOS Catalina should I need to wipe clean my storage again.

The Finder extension is in ~/Library/Services. Simply remove it.

Please all perspective users of SuperDuper ignore the negativity from the previous reviews! This is one fantastic app! The support is superb. If you have an issue and address it in an intelligent friendly manner it will get taken care of promptly. The Developer is extremely responsive and friendly. If you want a great backup to either replace Time Machine or an adjunct to it SuperDuper is the ticket!!!

This software has been instrumental in every hard drive upgrade (cloning the smaller drive to the larger replacement drive) and computer replacement (cloning the internal hard drive of the computer being replaced). It's faster and more reliable than trying to drag and drop gigabytes of data. Purchasing the software unlocks some smart, time-saving functionality, especially if you're dealing with large amounts of data.

I have been using SuperDuper for many years and have been happy with its simplicity and reliability as a backup. When I logged in last week to make a routine backup, the app notified me of an update. When I downloaded the update, I found that I could not encrypt my external backup drive. I emailed Shirt Pocket and quickly got a reply from Dave. It took us several email exchanges but we were eventually able to fix the problem. What I am most impressed by is how quickly someone from this company responded to my problem, in the evening and going into a holiday, no less. He replied to my emails almost always within minutes, and he stuck in there until we finally solved it. A great product is one thing, but great support puts this product over the top! Keep up the amazing work!

The software is great! I have used it to make flawless backups for years. And they are bootable. Last year I got a one of those Russian encrypt your computer and not decrypt it unless you pay a fee. I simply re-booted to the previous day backup created with SuperDuper, reformatted my main drive, copied the SuperDuper drive back and rebooted. Voila, a completely restored, piracy-software-free main drive. The technical support is outstanding! I haven't had many issues, but the author has responded within 24 hours and solved the problem in every instance. This really is great sofware. BTW: Let me say for the record that I am not related or associated with the company at all.

I've been using SuperDuper! since I got myself started on the Mac OS X, back in 2008: it has been an excellent, top tier application. All my OS X start up disk I've been backing them up with SuperDuper!., great work from the developer.
