How Secure?

I have made a safety clone-shared users. The userís manual suggests this is the most secure clone in terms of isolating the source partition from the safety clone. However, won't a corruption of a preference file that happens on the clone be passed back to the source partition? How can I confidently try new software on the clone if damage can be passed back to the preference file of the source?

I do not know the answer to your question, but just wanted to give you a heads-up that Dave might currently be on vacation. I'm sure he'll be checking in occasionally, but the response times may be longer than they usually are.

Hey, Norman.

SuperDuper! is designed to isolate the system, including the system's preferences. It doesn't isolate user preferences, so it doesn't guarantee that those prefs won't be damaged but -- of course -- a regular backup will.

Hope that helps! (And thanks, Jonas, for chipping in -- I am indeed traveling for the next week or so...)
