product/support comparisons
Authored by: sjk on May 19, '06 11:20:39PM

There are reasons why SD! might be considered technically superior to CCC, some mentioned in the blog article FredB7 linked to. It's generally a good idea to minimize filesystem usage while backups of it are running, but SD! is more interactively responsive than CCC. Try moving the main window or opening the logfile while either is running; SD! wins easily. And SD! uses memory more efficiently.

One key question to ask is who you'll want to trust to help resolve any issues related to the backup product(s) you choose.

With SD! it's a near guarantee you'll get fast, dependable support directly from the developer, either through e-mail or the forum. With CCC you can post to the forum and hope for a response, possibly from someone not deeply familiar with the product or OS X.

My backups are very important so I want reliable support for any products I'm using to do them.
