so long retrospect?

You won't need to run bless seperately (although psync may use it, I'm not sure).

Psync will automatically create a bootable drive (at least, it does on my FW drive if I backup the entire HD).

psync is excellent!

I've been using psync for about a year now and it works flawlessly. I backup to an external firewire hard drive, (oxford 911 chipset with an IBM ATA inside), and it is bootable without any blessing commands. I also use it to clone to spare local partitions for testing purposes. If something goes awry with the testing, it's easy to restore using psync and it's fast too. It also does incremental backups and works in the background. The only caveat is that it won't do backups to networked drives.
