I would like some kind of backup program in addition to Time Machine. Would someone please compare, in really simple terms, SuperDuper to Carbon Copy Cloner or any other backup program and recommend one? Thanks.

The canonical reference is Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac.”

In short, both SuperDuper and Carbon Copy Cloner are fine programs for making bootable duplicates and you won’t go wrong by choosing either. SuperDuper is a bit cheaper ($28 to $40) and has a somewhat simpler user interface, so it might be the better choice for you.

Thanks, Adam. Years ago, I was a bit of a techy, but now I would probably opt for the simpler interface.

Thanks for the pointer to the Take Control book.

I have them both and use them both and they are both very good. One advantage to Carbon Copy Cloner is that it will offer to make a Recovery Volume on the clone HD the first time you create a new clone.
