What is SuperDuper!?
SuperDuper makes recovery painless, because it makes creating a fully bootable backup painless. Its incredibly clear, friendly interface is understandable, easy to use, and its built-in scheduler makes it trivial to back up automatically. It's the perfect complement to Time Machine under Leopard, allowing you to store a bootable backup alongside your Time Machine volume—and it runs beautifully on both Intel and Power PC Macs! SuperDuper's interface confirms all your actions in simple, clear language to ensure that the end result is exactly what you intended.

I can rest easy, knowing that even if my laptop is irretrievably borked, I can recover to a new machine. Once schedules are set up (which takes a few minutes, one time), Super Duper! makes sure I'm backed up every night.
Of course, it's no fault of Super Duper's, but booting from a backup is way slower than your usual daily boot, so if you find yourself in that scary circumstance, set aside a couple of hours to boot from the backup, recover to your new drive or computer, and you'll be back on your feet again soon.
I've used Super Duper to migrate to new laptops (as my work-provided daily driver has been upgraded over the years), including migrations to new OS versions.
Super Duper! earned all of its stars.
Since my backup disk is much smaller that the original, Mac's Disk Utility wouldn't copy, even though all the files can easily fit. Thank you guys, you've made my day. Simple, fast, retains key chains (Safari passwords, etc), makes the disk bootable while leaving boot sector intact - just what I needed!
In the past, I've always preferred Carbon Copy Cloner over SuperDuper, because CCC included a whole bunch of features that weren't available in the free version of SuperDuper. However, now that CCC has become a commercial app, the free version of SuperDuper is finally a credible alternative. You won't still get neat features such as scheduling and different methods of backup, but SuperDuper does the job, and it doesn't cost $30.
