Shirt-Pocket-SuperDuper recovery tool
Written by Hassan Abbas

Shirt Pocket, the developer behind the popular recovery tool SuperDuper updated the app. He is doing so just to support Apple’s latest desktop operating system.

SuperDuper version 3.3 is now available and supports macOS Catalina. It’s a free update for anyone who’s been using SuperDuper in the past or a $27.95 charge for the powerful recovery tool. If you don’t already own the software. SuperDuper made gains in its popularity due to its simple interface and general ease of use. Making the recovery and backup process as easy as possible.

And if you need to make a back up automatically, the built-in scheduler makes that a breeze as well. Shirt Pocket says the newest version of SuperDuper will make it possible to ignore the “missing drive” bugs that can crop up during a scheduled copy. It can also make improvements to the Smart Wake feature that makes sure your backups happen whether the macOS software is awake or asleep.

What’s More?

This new version improves Smart Delete, an awesome and brilliant new capability that minimizes the possibility of disk full errors while maintaining safety with no speed penalty,  a Finder extension to quickly run copies, native Notification Center support and other improvements. It also creates and copies from snapshots, which means with an APFS backup drive, you can restore today’s Smart Update, yesterday’s, etc! It’s super cool.

Why SuperDuper can be helpful?

Shirt Pocket notes that using macOS is typically a “trouble-free experience”, but made a quick review list to break down when it might not be, and why SuperDuper can be a helpful tool:

  • Your hard drive starts making that horrible clicking noise that signals an impending meltdown.
  • Momentary decline coordination causes your MacBook Pro to take a dirt nap
  • Suddenly the system fails to boot.
  • Your most important day-to-day application isn’t working with the system update you just applied.
  • The new driver you just updated is causing your Macintosh to crash.
  • That terrible software you just tried didn’t come with an uninstaller and scattered files all over your drive.
  • You need to restore a stable copy of your system, but don’t want to lose what you’ve been working on
  • You need to test new versions of the OS with production data you can’t afford to lose
