Good, and I*m glad I asked. For now, I*m content that I have a clone I could repopulate from. Once you have an M2 Mac and have tried it, or someone with experience could answer this thread, I*d...

Thanks, Dave, but some of what you say is a bit above my head; I'm simply interested in whether/how I can boot from the clone with my M2 MBA. (The Safe Mode trial was unsuccessful with the Toshiba...

Thanks, Dave, I'll look more closely into all that. BTW, both Retrospect and Arq look like they might be useful.

NAS/Drive over WiFi: reliability?

I'd be more than willing to use this, but I'm not tech savvy enough to be sure I understand (and I don't want to spend money on something that won't work). Doesn't this connect over my local WiFi -...

Time Machine replacement?

I'm increasingly fed up with Time Machine and would like to see whether there's another way, another app, which can do the same thing, best would be over WiFi. Though I've used SD for a long time,...

Feature Request: Clone Whole Disk

I have two volumes on my disk, the main boot volume and TTP's eDrive (actually, I think there's a 3rd, the OS's recovery volume), and some users may have even more. SD only clones 1 volume...

Q's 3 & 4
