Shirt Pocket announces the immediate availability of SuperDuper! 2.5.
Shirt Pocket is happy to announce that SuperDuper 2.5 is now available as a
free update for all users. The new version includes full Leopard support,
including the ability to store a bootable backup side-by-side with a Time
Machine backup on a single volume, and the ability to copy Time Machine
archives to other drives for backup purposes or to move to a larger drive
without losing history.
In addition, version 2.5 improves many aspects of our 2005 and 2006
Macworld Eddy-award winning application, including improved Spotlight
handling, a “Run Now” feature for scheduled copies, icon preservation for
destination volumes and various performance improvements.
“What more appropriate day to release a terrific new version than
SuperDuper Tuesday? We’re really happy with the way version 2.5 works with
Leopard”, said David Nanian, owner of Shirt Pocket, in his standard stump
speech. “Our new feature set is great on its own, plus it’s an excellent
complement to Time Machine, adding the ability to have a bootable backup
alongside your Time Machine archive — and we’ve done all this without any
increase in complexity. With SuperDuper!, recovery from a disk crash is
just a matter of rebooting from the backup!”
Of course, SuperDuper 2.5 still has all the capabilities SuperDuper! is
famous for, including: the ability to easily schedule backups; additional
imaging options; more control over shutdown; better AppleScript support;
hundreds of UI improvements; Growl support; and a readable, complete,
task-based User’s Guide.
SuperDuper supports both Intel and Power PC Macs running Mac OS X 10.4 or
later, and is a free update for existing users. The unregistered version
will perform full backups for free. Registration costs $27.95, and includes
many additional timesaving features, including Smart Update for faster
backups, Scheduling, and others.
