comment How can I reliably backup an external drive to another external drive?
At some time in the future conditions impacting my workflow may (insert will if you prefer) change, at which point I will revaluate and alter my workflow. That is the nature of tech. I'm a SuperDuper guy myself (I like clones for local backup) but I do use Crashplan Central for offsite backup and wouldn't hesitate to use the software for a local (or self-managed offsite) backup. The odds that the software just stops working anytime soon are pretty low and the benefits are high.

That very statement provides context and improves the quality of the answer. Adding that information would be a great edit. Again, I recognize this isn't a great question--see my comments above. Best Rgds!

Expanding on my initial objection to your question, what answer were you looking for that wasn't already available on the site? (See the possible duplicate question, and other suggestions in the sidebar. ) Duplicates aren't automatically disallowed but we do look for them to bring something new to the conversation. See FAQ. Please don't be discouraged by my comments. We realize that Ask Different is different from other online forums. We welcome new members. I hope you'll stick around and help create the definitive source for Apple Q&A.
