So, we'll write to a disk image on the far side. And, we'll automatically mount the network drive, mount the image, copy to the image and unmount the image when the schedule time comes.
Sorry, I am still confused. Where is the image located?

Also, why can't the remote drive be mounted by the computer running SuperDuper? Then could it write directly to it?

Maybe a concrete example would help to define the situation (and perhaps help me get your explanations thru my thick skull):

Computers A and B are on an ethernet LAN.
Computer A has an external drive d1 attached via firewire.
Computer B is running SuperDuper.

What I would like to accomplish is:
1- Computer B wakes up at the scheduled time
2- Computer A also wakes up
3- Computer B mounts disk d1 (since Computer A is now awake)
4- Computer B backs up its data (somehow) to disk d1 over the network
5- Computer B unmounts disk d1

It sounds like SuperDuper will accomplish this, but somehow through the use of a disk image. Can you please explain how this could work given the above scenario?

Thanks again.
