    Question Differences in backup types?

    I just recently rooted my Moto Droid on friday night and am thoroughly enjoying playing with ROM Manager and Metamorph, etc. I was curious as I keep seeing the 'ol, "Make a Nandroid backup". I understand it's a backup, but so are Clockworkmod and SPRecovery...

    So my question is what exactly is the difference between Clockwork vs. SPRecovery vs. Nandroid?

    Forgive me if this has been asked before and I failed to find it.

    They are 2 different custom recoveries, CW gives a bit more control over wiping partitions. Beside that not much difference.

    But SPR Nandroids only work for SPR and CW Nandroids only work for CW

    Edit: SPR and CW are recoveries.
    Nandroids are backups made with those recoveries.

    Check out Link 1 in my sig for more info.

    So if I made a backup using clockwork or SPrecovery then I'm good and loading into the recovery screen at startup to do a Nandroid isn't necessary?
