Give SuperDuper! a try
Authored by: mangomanj on Oct 22, '04 12:26:44PM
I've playing around with this for about a month and am really happy with the results. I work for a very large, well known software company and need to re-image my computers many times a day. I haven't found anything that works as fast as SuperDuper! Most of my images include applications that are installed on them, so they are frequently 4+ gigs in size. It takes about 25-30 mins to create the image (on a G5 dual 2ghz) and about 2 mins to restore a volume. As far as data integrity, it been great. I also tested it using a 38gb volume and created and restored with no problems. The best part is you can use the demo in it's limited functionality as long as you want (says so on the website). I do plan on purchasing it, but I did want to say for basic functionality, SuperDuper! has met my basic needs. Get it here: SuperDuper!
