    When using TimeMachine and SuperDuper on the same machine, how does one or not adversely affect the latter when it does the incrementals.

    I user SD as my bootable backup and TM as my overall daily backup...

    The target disk from SuperDuper gets excluded from TM. They keep track in different ways I would expect. It's definitely a good idea to have both superduper and TM especially if they target to different disks.

    I'm not referring to the target backup disks...

    I assume when SD or TM does it's process, it does the *reset bit archive* so it knows which files to back up between full and incrementals, etc.

    I'm not sure how this behavior is effected bearing I am using both programs on the same machine.

    I use both on my MBP - both bits of software appear to operate as designed, they don't seem to interact at all.
