    SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner?
    Any thoughts?

    They both have great ratings on VersionTracker, I've been checking them out since I'm also in the market for one. CCC is much cheaper @ $5 vs SD @ $20. Unfortunately I haven't used either yet so i can't give you my take on one or the either. I'm sure someone will chime in that's used these products though.

    I'm using CCC to clone my HD as I type this in preperation for upgrading to Tiger. I'll be back when I'm done to report how it went. I got it because it was cheaper, and I hope that was the right choice. It got great reviews, just like SuperDuper.

    I've used both. I prefer SuperDuper simply because it's more customizable and powerful than CCC. If you need a simple backup app just to make a complete clone of your drive, CCC will do fine. Anything more complex and I'd recommend SuperDuper.

    Say I was going to replace my HDD and wanted to boot to the exact same system, just w/ more space. Will I be able to do so w/ either product or will SuperDuper be the best choice for me?

    I used Carbon Copy Cloner and it works flawlessly. Just not on Tiger, yet.

    SuperDuper would work just fine. It's a great app and it works fine on Tiger.

    Not to mention the developer was one of our sponsors for the contest

    I was using CCC, but it has started giving me problems on Tiger (usually it works, but sometimes it freezes when I type in my admin password.)

    Well, currently CCC doesn't officially support Tiger. An update is in the works.
