Backups made simple with Super Duper

I've been burned by data loss before, so I know how important it is to back up my hard drive. The thing is, every back-up software I've tried has been a big hassle. They're all slow and complicated. As a result, I was lucky if I'd do a backup once a month, because I dreaded firing up the program and trying to figure out what to do. "Which checkboxes should I click?" "Which options should I select?"

On a lark, I searched Version Tracker for backup software and found a new program called Super Duper. It was getting excellent reviews there, so I decided to give it a try. And I love it! It's extremely simple to use, but very powerful. It's one of those great programs that seems to know exactly what you need, when you need it, without requiring you to do anything.

After the first back-up (I use a 200G Maxtor One-Touch drive), subsequent "smart backups" take just a few minutes. The backups are bootable – in fact, they're clones of the original.

Super Duper has made backing up painless. So painless that it's almost fun. I back up my eMac and my iBook daily now. Link
