SuperDuper! 2.6.2 now even more so!

Many Mac pros are unnaturally fond of SuperDuper!, the accurately-named backup utility from Shirt Pocket Software. The application is inexpensive (free, actually, if you don't want advanced features -- the best US$27.95 you've ever spent, otherwise), powerful, and easily makes fully-bootable backups of your Mac.

The latest version of SuperDuper! has just been released. Version 2.6.2 is now available and has a ton of new features and fixes. Here's the scoop from the revision history:
  • Significant copy speed improvements (up to 2 times faster!)
  • Preserves compression when copying
  • Fixed extra copying under Snow Leopard
  • Scheduled copies in old format are now disabled and we prompt the user to recreate
  • Scheduled copies work on Japanese systems and with more Unicode/composed character drive names
  • Backup-on-mount should work on 10.4.11
  • Adjusted SDUtil path to improve robustness when application is moved (now symlinked/refreshed)
  • Minor copy tweaks
  • Reworked SL status to use 1000B = 1MB, 1024B = MiB for Leopard and earlier.
  • Fixed crontab escaping if user has tcsh as their default shell
  • Fixed issues with explicit Spotlight disable/enable under 10.5+
If you currently have SuperDuper!, you'll be notified of the update the next time you fire it up. If you don't have it, get it.

Thanks to Scott for the tip!
