SuperDuper!

3.2.5
26 June 2019

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 3.2.5:
  • The latest version of SuperDuper! is faster, better, fully compatible with macOS Mojave
  • Adds Smart Wake, Smart Delete, Notification Center support, additional control capabilities, and improves many aspects of the user experience

This is BY FAR the most useful and cost-effective piece of software that any Mac User could buy. Period. I have used Macs since the 128k Mac in 1984. I have helped hundreds of people set their Macs up. I have run ITs groups for entire companies. I've tried just about every piece of backup software there is and the is The best out there, by far. I recommend to everyone who owns a Mac to buy an external hard drive with a capacity of at least 2x the capacity of their internal drive. Create two partitions on the external, one should be the same size as the internal drive, the other should use the rest of the disk. The first partition should be used by Super Duper for creating a full backup of their internal drive, and the second partition can be used for Time Machine. This is just about the safest and most convenient setup you could have. Why bother? A key distinction is that SuperDuper can create a fully bootable backup of your internal drive. (You cannot boot from a Time Machine disk.) If something goes wrong with your internal drive, you can simply boot up off the external backup made by Super Duper! I tell clients to let Time Machine run every hour, and set up Super Duper to perform a Smart Update (of the backup) maybe every few days, or a week. This system has worked flawlessly for everyone that has employed it. Losing your data is almost as bad as having your identity stolen. About 6% of hard disk fail within a year, and after 3 years about 18% are dead. Do yourself a favor, go buy an external hard disk that is at least 2x the size of your internal drive, and set up SuperDuper (and Time Machine) in the way I described. It will be the best insurance you ever purchased.

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.

Nice all these new features. But what the heck are they? They are not in the manual, not on the site and not in the forum. Searched for example for 'Smart Wake' to no avail. And where can I find all those improvements of the user experience? App looks exactly the same as years ago...

Please see http://www.shirt-pocket.com/blog for a discussion of Smart Wake.

There have been a ton of improvements to the user experience - not all are visible in the UI, because UX isn't just the "visual appearance", but also its operation. Examples include things like Smart Wake, which are invisible but improve the operation.

Others? Copying from snapshots (note the "arrow" next to copy now; discussed on the blog), Smart Delete, running more than one schedule in Scheduled Copies with multi-select, Finder extensions for running saved settings, etc.

This software has saved me twice. Superduper has the BEST SUPPORT of any product that I've used in my 30 years of computer use. Excellent is an insult to what they do. Buy this software and protect yourself.

Ok, it’s a stupid question. I just purchased a new Mac book pre, it has 4 isbc(?) two on each side, what can I plug in to back up, that’s small and reliable. Only need maybe 240 gigs to back up. Do those thumb drives work? Which one?

any thumb drive I have tried in the past has worked. I have also used SD cards. Just format to a format that the Mac will boot from.

There's no difference in speed between 3.1.7 and earlier versions going quite a way back, "Mrball". Perhaps Spotlight is causing your slowdown, or a hub, or antivirus?

Feel free to write to support and I can help you more directly.

Reliable and easy to use. Having used this for many years it works effectively and is straightforward in operation. Developer seems fair with no costly yearly upgrade pricing as well.
