Backup and system recovery tool

SuperDuper! is one of the utilities & tools that creates a fully bootable backup. The data recovery program offers its service with a plain and organized interface so you can easily understand where things are placed and retrieve them quickly. This way you can use its built-in scheduler to back up your files automatically. It’s a good program to use in tandem with the Time Machine - a backup software application developed by Apple. This is how SuperDuper! backs up files whether your computer is awake or asleep. 

Never worry about backing up files

SuperDuper! prevents your files from being deleted when your computer is showing signs of hardware or software failure. Signs of this include a horrible clicking noise coming from your hard disk drive or when the system does not boot up anymore. You’re also going to need this program when you want to restore a stable copy of your system or testing a new version of your OS. These are situations where your computer can wipe out your data in an instant. With SuperDuper!, you get carbon copies of all your files. 

The disk copying program creates a full data backup or clone of anything regardless of file format. This enables you to duplicate your boot drive to another HDD, partition, or image file. There are three features that come into play when you’re using SuperDuper! and its: Smart Update, Smart Wake, and Smart Delete. Smart Update and Smart Wake are complementary features as the former updates any clones with the latest data. The latter, on the other hand, updates your files at a designated time and date. 

Maintain a simple storing system

SuperDuper! is a recovery program that exclusively copies Apple File System and Mac OS + volumes. The abbreviations for these are APFS and HFS+. This means files stored in CDs or DVDs cannot be backed up. It is because these files need the location of a file path outside of the boot volume. Typically, these are internal and external locations like FireWire, USB2, USB3, and Thunderbolt drive. Another capability that SuperDuper! has is creating a bootable copy of your system. It can save this in another hard drive or partition. 

Through this, you can share your personal documents and data with different devices. You can use this to preserve your original system as well but it requires that you install a seed software on the Safety Clone startup volume. This will enable you to install system updates, drivers, or programs without touching the original system. The first volume is considered as the checkpoint wherein it doesn’t have any programs or system updates that contain other files you’ve been working on since you made the copy. 

Essential for office and productivity 

SuperDuper! is the file recovery program for all user-levels. Its simple interface makes it easier for you to back up your files, programs, and operating system. While it cannot save files from other hardware like a CD or USB, you can move these files to your computer so it will be saved. Ultimately, this program is good for those that meet its system requirements and frequently need their files updated. 

SuperDuper is the wildly acclaimed program that makes recovery painless, because it makes creating a fully bootable backup painless. Its incredibly clear, friendly interface is understandable, easy to use, and SuperDuper's built-in scheduler makes it trivial to back up automatically.
