We did notice some weirdness with fts’ handling (w/device crossing turned on); didn’t seem to “pop-up” the traverse right, which I thought was part of the point. We’re trying to nail that weirdness down.

Another new thing in SuperDuper! 3.2.5 - one-click entry of registration information from the receipt that appears onscreen and via email.

It’s not magic— it’s just a URL scheme—but it’s clear, very convenient for users, and generates fewer support requests to boot. pic.twitter.com/8vb6zhVzFc

We hope you’re as excited about that as we are.

What happens is, basically, what you’d expect. You get what you get at the moment FTS transits past the directory entry. You can’t lock access.

“Custom” snapshots aren’t allowed without Apple permission. You could leverage Time Machine, though…but it may not be worth it.

Avast is finding a false-positive bitcoin mining trojan in libswiftDispatch.dylib. If it quarantines the file, you will break many applications, including SuperDuper.

There is NO Trojan in our app (or the others it’s flagging)…

There are things to complain about with the HomePod, for sure. But, in comparison to other speakers anywhere near its price range, its sound quality (kind of mono-and-a-half) is not one of them.

Consumer Reports should probably stick to washing machines and dishwashers.

Problem is not major; some drives are missing an ID we expected all drives to have (the media UUID) - we had no testers with a missing value here.

We have it fixed internally and confirmed with a few users it happened to. Doing additional testing and will update when complete.

One of these days, I have to write a blog post about why unreadable files are not “corrupt files” as such - they’re files sitting on failed drive sectors…and drives that start to fail don’t really stop.

Don’t be cheap, folks. Drives are cheap, your data isn’t.

Announcing SuperDuper! 3.1 —now with copying from snapshots. APFS backup drives, using Smart Update, have time-based backups, so you can restore yesterday’s backup, too…and maybe even last week’s.

Huh. Who knew that @FogBugz was the “platform that pioneered bug tracking”.
I’ll have to talk to my 90s self and tell him that Track Record never existed!
