Create SuperDuper! backup reminders using Growl and cron
Authored by: kevans on Mar 08, '10 04:12:22PM

I can't see the point of this (unless you just like to write scripts). I've been using SuperDuper for several years, and I have three automated backups: daily user data, weekly user data, and a monthly bootable disk clone. I can understand that you might want to know if backups are running when scheduled. In that case, don't tell SD (in prefs) to close when finished, and the next time you see your screen, the SD window will be open and will confirm that all went well.

kevans, the author stated "I wrote these scripts because my laptop is rarely connected to my backup drive".
