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.

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)

Don't waste your money. Not usable with Big Sur and not a word when to expect an update. It was great until they dropped the ball.

While one could argue that Time Machine makes 3-rd party cloning solutions somewhat redundant, there's positives and negatives to each. SuperDuper! has always been very reliable, and has been offering both incremental and full backups / bootable copies, scheduling and other features, while retaining a straightforward, uncomplicated user interface for well over 10 years. It has its advantages and disadvantages, compared to Time Machine, but in terms of reliability, it's as reliable a backup and cloning solution as Time Machine. If you don't care for smart / incremental backups and other useful features, you're welcome to use the app without a registration for as long as you will: it will do the job as a basic cloning solution with or without a license, but a license acquisition will pay itself through the addition of said (very handy) features, referred above. The Shirt Pocket upgrade policy is among the very best there is. Unlike many a developer, Dave doesn't look for ways to charge for version upgrades: the license key procured 10+ years ago, is as valid for the latest version as it was at the time of purchase some 10 years ago. Customer support is top notch, too. There's also the nostalgia element, that I imagine is - of subjective value and won't do much to most: I tried SuperDuper! first, after researching Mac OS X cloning solutions and reading a number of raving reviews in the process back in early 2000's (somewhere between 2005 to 2007). It was acclaimed to be the best cloning utility back then, edging the likes of the Carbon Copy Cloner and others on accuracy and reliability. The app was launched onto the market in the early days of Mac OS X itself - many apps have come and gone, but SuperDuper! is among the handful still going strong today. Those nostalgic days of late Steve Jobs' keynotes, of Apple struggles to stay afloat, the days when barely one in 15 computer users owned a Mac…

What we are buying with SuperDuper! is peace-of-mind. I have been using it for at least ten years, enjoying prompt personal support response from the developer himself. I pound my iMac pretty hard; many different models over the years, collating and editing metadata on more than 34,562 of favorite songs in my Music library and 25,694 continuously changing images in Apple Photos. Additionally, I have been entrusted with over $200,000 in edited client images, collected over a decade. No telephone mazes with long delays from inarticulate uninformed amateurs. Remarkably, Dave responds in person. SuperDuper! is truly Super, providing steady reliability and security for my 3 TB of precious data.

I have been using SuperDuper! for at least ten years. What we're buying from this developer is peace of mind. With frequent free updates and unbelievably prompt support response. I pound my iMac pretty hard collating and correcting data for more than 30,000 songs in my Music library, 26,000 images in Photos (continuous additions and edits daily), and having run $200,000 worth of mail order business, all with precious files entrusted to me by worldwide clients, all from one Mac (several replacements over 30-years). My 3 TB of data must be secure, and it is, thanks to SuperDuper! from Shirt Pocket and Dave's diligent timely updates and always-available personal support. No telephone mazes, no uninformed unintelligible amateurs responding late and inaccurately. SuperDuper! is indeed super, a genuine underpriced, vital part of my computer life and security.
