SuperDuper!

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!

The software is manageable even for a tech-helpless old man and the customer service is nothing short of amazing.

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.

Great software. Try the free version and read the manual. Buy three 1TB external drives for backups, password and rotate them, storing one off-site. Your data is your digital life, don't lose it.

I have been using Superduper for ten plus years now. I have quite a few older macs. Many are retired. Most of my current macs are from 2012 and 2011. Steve Jobs last years. I have been able to keep them running well and am able to do cloning backups and smart backups and keep my work safe. I do mostly audio and video work and end up with a lot of hard drives and SSDs. I am upgrading my older macs to Mojave before Big Sur comes out and it is great to have Superduper to keep the process smooth. No problems over the last decade.

Horrible! DO NOT PURCHASE. Does not work on my Mac and when I asks for a refund all I received was patronizing emails. I will be reporting this product and company to the BBB for not only the lack of customer satisfaction but also the harassment that followed my distress.
