i'll chime in on this one with a practical story of having my ass  
saved by SD: while on tour my laptop suffered a catastrophic hd  
failure - my internal drive toasted in Amsterdam the day before my  
show. i had been keeping a daily clone using SD and smart update, so  
i ran out, got a new drive, ran back to Steim and borrowed some tools  
and a table, ripped out the old drive and stuck in the new and  
reinstalled os x (i also brought most of my install disks and  
utilities) and used the Migration assistant to import all of my  
stuff. the whole process took me about 8hrs and i was back on track.  
it pays to be prepared!
