SuperDuper! 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.

Folks need to realize that just about all "recent" issues for both SuperDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner are due to Apple, and specifically their Apple Software Restore (ASR) software. It's unfortunate that Apple does not fix this, even with both Dave Nanian and Mike Bombich registering their complaints with Apple. And it seems like this is the world we'll need to live in going forward with backups. I just appreciate the efforts of Dave in trying to deal with all this. He has done a commendable job!

" Volume replication failed - error 49157 ". I wonder what the cause of the said error is. And how to resolve it. SuperDuper!, along with Carbon Copy Cloner, used to be among the best OS duplication app.

I depend on SuperDuper!, and it has never failed me! In fact, it has "saved my bacon" a few times. Still, it would be best to wait before installing Ventura. The initial version of every Mac OS always has issues., and Ventura is no exception. Today the first beta of OS 13.1 was released, so already there are issues. As it is, there is still software that is not yet compatible with Ventura. So, it is best to wait until at least the third version of Ventura, OS 12.3, arrives. By that time, just about all the "dust" will have settled.

I read that This program was the answer to getting my HD to SSD, so I purchased and set to clone my HD to a new install of 12.6 on SSD, failed with “unable to remove directory… a list of stuff” at end Directory not empty. I then did an erase and copy.. that worked! SSD boots etc. But now HD and SSD “read only” trying to trouble shoot this I am not exactly savvy on some things. Otherwise everything seems to work, Superduper is very fast To me easier than CCC. I do have to go to utilities - SSD-container1-SSD(volumes)-SSD - and mount the SSD. Under this is SSD (snapshot)- and last SSD - data. Original HD is cloned in CCC which is why this shows on SSD Can this be why I have “read only in HD and SSD” ? When I launch Superduper get “please attach or mount the volume…SSD-data.” Thank you Any help? Thank you

Superduper simple, speed, cheaper, clean interface and no hassle and no frills bootable. Used Carbon Copy often gave problems. Used 5 and 6 and gave up. Happy with Superduper! Only nerds need CC maybe, they like complicated stuff.

I filled out the new evaluation form here, and I could not finish unless I selected one negative thing about SuperDuper. I finally chose Social media integration since I had to choose something. For what I do, SuperDuper is perfect. If I had social media integration I guess I could post to Facebook every time I backed up -- I would probably get lots of "likes" for that.

Super Duper is GARBAGE. I used the free version of Super Duper. It is complete garbage. It took over 24 hours to and it was not even halfway done the cloaning. DO NOT BUY. This is GARBAGE product. Does not work.

I, too, was a purchaser of SD but had to stop using it because it couldn't clone the new OS. I bought CCC for that reason only, now SD is back with cloning. Will I have to pay more now to go back? I think not!

I left SuperDuper for Carbon Copy Cloner some years ago, because I'd been bitten by an SD design flaw: one could set up options that conflict with one another, leading to unwanted resuts. Now on Catalina with a new machine, , I did a standard CCC 5.16 backup on a new machine. II discovered that it was no longer possible to create a bootable clone. I decided to revisit SuperDuper and this time used the default options. I found that it in Catalina (and Monterey & Big Sur) SD can 1) create a bootable drive, as before, and 2) create a recovery drive, a capability that had been missing for many years. Highly recommended!

Support is exceptional! Very easy to use, reliable. I have been using SuperDuper for many years and have had no problems whatsoever. However, I recently used a new external drive to make a bootable version, but made an error in setting up to make a bootable clone. I erroneously used a "Smart Update" instead of "back up all files" type of backup, so booting up in that setup didn't work. I didn't find information in searching but I received a reply email from SuperDuper support within a few hours with clear instructions that worked! Yes, this works in Catalina.

I've used SuperDuper! many times for many years to make backups and to upgrade to larger hard drives in my Macs. It's simple and reliable. I am currently looking at upgrading my Late 2013 MacBook Pro running High Sierra from a 512G SSD to a 1TB SSD. Is there any reason I couldn't use SuperDuper! to clone from the 512 to the 1TB and then just swap the drives? I've done that in the past with other versions of OSX, but with High Sierra using a different file format, I wasn't sure.

I am not good at computers, and it was one of the first program I've tried to copy disks with and worked perfectly for me! The only thing I don't like much is that it works with internal drives only.

I'm sure the software performs what it claims to honourably. It cannot however access data on unmounted drives which may be the context some people find themselves downloading it in (trying to clone a drive that isn't mounting, for example, possibly coming from this Apple page: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/251385405?answerId=252694435022#252694435022)
