Editors' review

SuperDuper for Mac lets you quickly back up your files or your entire hard drive, with multiple options for compression and storage location. Users of all experience levels can quickly take advantage of this app's tools and features to secure files and stay organized.

Pros

Backup options: With this program, you can choose what to copy and where to copy it to with just a few clicks. You can also choose to save your data as a Read Only Disk Image, a Read/Write "Sparse" Bundle, or a Read/Write "Sparse" Image. Compression level options include None, Low, Medium, and High, and you can opt to allow copying with or without Password Protection.

Clear explanations: As you work through the process of creating backups, you'll see clear explanations in non-technical language guiding you in the decisions you make. This makes the program much more accessible to newer users, but the tips don't slow down experienced users at all.

Cons

Creation time: The backups this program makes are not created quickly. That doesn't have to be a huge inconvenience, but you do need to be aware of and plan for the time necessary to complete the process. And this time will vary depending on how many files you're including in the backup.

Bottom Line

SuperDuper for Mac is a versatile and convenient tool to help you ensure the security of your files. Creating backups through this program is quick to initiate, and even though these backups may take some time to create, you can easily work around this limitation with a bit of planning. The app is free to try, and the full purchase price is $27.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of SuperDuper for Mac 2.7.2.

    "Free! Works! Awesome!"

    May 15, 2014   |   By Daisy_Pandora

    Version: SuperDuper 2.7.2

    Pros

    Worked first try no issues.

    Cons

    MINOR CON it takes a while, but I didn't expect 320GB to clone in minutes either. I don't think that's a software issue, I think it just depends on the amount of data you have.

    Summary

    Used it to clone and upgrade from 320GB to 1 TB hard drive. It is fantastic and you don't have to buy it, the free version will clone your drive easily
