Comment on SuperDuper!

When Leopard came out, I tried to replace SuperDuper with Time Machine as my main backup solution. Time Machine is much faster than SuperDuper's Smart backup, but it does not work transparently; it excludes many large files that would slow it down considerably (VMWare virtual machines are an example), and furthermore, it does not support backing up to anything but a disk or network partition. I like to backup to encrypted disk images, so I went back to SuperDuper.

I suspect that a future version of SuperDuper will interface with fseventsd, like Time Machine, and that this will speed up Smart Backups by orders of magnitude. I would gladly pay for a new version when that happens.
