I have been using (and recommending) SuperDuper for a couple of years. I still use it (now that it is finally completely Leopard compatible). However, I find Time Machine a real ++. I use it on both of my iMacs. I have retrieved cookie files that disappeared twice - saving me substantial time. If (heaven forbid) one has to completely restore, TM makes that very easy by simply booting from your software install DVD.
In summary, both are OK. I am on the edge.... and probably will drop SD after a couple more updates to OS X 10.5.
Hi David Schlachter1-
A bootable clone is something you should have locked away in a fireproof safe, preferably far away from the office, no matter what backup program that you use.
Nothing will save your data if a catastrophe wipes out the office and/or physical hardware on which both original and backup reside.
To answer your question, you can do that but what do you gain by having all of your eggs in one basket and on one drive?
