    My internal storage is flash. I use super duper to clone the internal to an external hdd... will this still be possible after the internal drive is converted to apfs?

    Thanks!

    I don't see support listed for APFS volumes, yet.

    "The latest version of SuperDuper! is faster, better, compatible with macOS High Sierra HFS+ volumes - in fact, it's compatible with macOS 10.8 and later), and improves many parts of the user experience."

    Carbon Copy Cloner is. It comes with a 30 day trial. You could use that to backup the APFS drive, until SD had support.
