View Full Version : Which file is currently copying?

How can I tell which file SuperDuper is currently copying during a scheduled backup?

I have searched the User Guide and forum, but my search skills must not be up to the task. Either that or the answer is too obvious to require an explanation. OK, so just where is that snake that would have bit me?

You can't tell inside SuperDuper! -- we don't tell you. But, if you run the following in Terminal:

sudo lsof | grep SDCopy

The last two files listed are what we're reading and writing.

Thanks Dave! At least it's not obvious.

Of course the delay was that SD! was busy filling up my backup drive. I was downloading a big file during the backup. (Bad minckster! Bad!) I won't do that again...

Yep. We do suggest you not do that... :)
