You definitely need to partition if you're going to store a backup and some archived data side by side.

Don't worry about the Sandbox for now: you don't sound like the kind of user who needs it, and it has nothing to do with archiving.

Please remember: the "archive" is something you're managing yourself. Move files there when you want to save them. Do not direct SD! at the archive volume!
Now just so I have this right... I've been using Super Duper with a 60/60 for the past 3 years. Now I'm upgrading my Powerbook G4/Tiger to a 160gb, so I'm about to set off to buy a bigger clone drive.

Can I buy a 250 or even 320, partition it 160/90 or 160/160, and use the leftover for scratch - i.e if I ever have to restore from the clone, the system will present me the two partitions to choose from? JUST HAVE TO MAKE SURE NOW ...
