SuperDuper 2.7.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

After a long wait, Shirt Pocket has released SuperDuper 2.7.2 [1] with full support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, including a workaround for a problem in Mavericks with Spotlight handling, plus the return of auto-mount and auto-eject for scheduled copies. (For some technical background on the delay, see this Shirt Pocket blog post [2].) The drive-cloning and backup app also makes volume size information available in the source and destination pop-ups, improves Smart Update speed, transitions scheduling from cron to launchd, and does away with annoying and incorrect security prompts associated with scheduled copies. SuperDuper 2.7.2 now requires 10.6 Snow Leopard or later, but version 2.7.1 is still available for those running 10.4 Tiger and 10.5 Leopard. (Free for basic functionality, $27.95 for additional features, free update, 2.9 MB, release notes [3])
