I use SuperDuper to make disk to disk copies on Mac's all the time. I always thought it was free for basic functionality but pay for advanced features. A quick look at their website and I find this on the right hand side bar -
You can download SuperDuper! v2.6.2 right now and back up and clone your drives for free— forever!

and this near the bottom of the page -

Give SuperDuper a workout on your own system. Clone to your heart's content — for free. See what else is possible. When you're convinced that SuperDuper is a terrific solution — and a great value at $$ — you can register right from the application and start using its advanced features immediately!

Certainly not fully free, but the "clone forever" part lends me to believe that at least that portion of the software qualifies.

Thanks freedog. So, it seems like backup and cloning are free. Its still not very clear though. I have sent an email to the SuperDuper site for more clarification on this. Lets see. Thanks again.

I had sent an email to Shirt Pocket site, for clarification about the free version. This is what I got as reply :

Quote:
The download is the same. You can use the unregistered version to make full backups of both 'all' and 'user' files, without expiration, and with support. Features like "Smart Update" and scheduling are unlocked when you pay to register.
So, yes, SuperDuper can be used for free, without registering it, but some features won't be available.
