Use a run-on-drive-connect SuperDuper backup script
Authored by: andersmoldin on Mar 27, '09 01:30:52AM

I got stuck on "Next, with the backup drive attached, create an automated, timed backup in SuperDuper that runs the unmount shell script upon completion.". Could you be a little more precise? Should I click the "Schedule..." button and create an automatic backup there? With what settings?

Use a run-on-drive-connect SuperDuper backup script

Hi, I'm the author of this tip... sorry about that big step there. Here's some more details.

- Open SuperDuper!
- Select the drives to Copy FROM and TO
- Select "Using" whichever method you want (I use Backup -- all files for one big drive and Backup -- user files for another drive)
- Click Options...
- On Advanced, click "Run shell script after copy completes" and select the Unmount USB / Firewire script that you made earlier
- Click OK
- Click Schedule...
- Create any schedule as long as "Automatically copy" is selected at top. Don't worry about the actual schedule much because you're just trying to create a packaged file with the settings all saved.
- Click OK
- Close out SuperDuper!

Let me know if you need any more help getting this going.
