    I user SuperDuper. From the many threads about it, both CCC and SuperDuper are pretty much the same. Some people prefer 1 some the other. It's more a personal preference than a real technical advantage.

    I'm one of those who tried SD in the early days and it was okay.

    Then a friend introduced me to CCC. It was better back then, IMHO. Since that time I've used CCC and had good results. FWIW, I do full clones to alternating external HDs on a weekly basis.

    I believe that there are some differences/features, but I haven't compared the most recent versions.

    Cost wise, to unlock all of SD's features (which you may not need), you must purchase it for around $25-30. Whereas CCC is Donationware (Shareware). You get the full version for free, but are asked to make a donation.

    Edit: Forgot to say. Give both a try and see which one works best for your situation.
