View Full Version : Preparing to upgrade HDD and I want to ensure that my image is "Perfect"

I booted from the image, and everything appears fine.

The only thing I did notice was a discrepancy between the Number of Files and Folders between the image and my current boot drive.

Screenshots attached. The Fujitsu is my current boot drive. The Seagate is my new 7200 RPM drive that will be installed next week.

Thanks in advance. I REALLY LOVE SuperDuper!

This is a "Backup - all files"?

This is a "Backup - all files"?

I first ran a "Backup - all files" with Erase then copy. Then rebooted and ran "Backup - all files" with Smart Update.

OK. It's likely you have a bad folder in /Volumes. Use Finder's "Go To Folder command to open

/Volumes

Once there, look for a *folder* (not a link/alias). Have one that -- when Get Info'ed -- is rather large?

You were exactly right. Now a follow up question. The folder I found in my /Volumes directory was a partial copy of my backup drive (that is created and updated by SuperDuper! This is my backup drive, not to be confused with the 200gb drive that I am currently imaging files to. What could I have done to get these files copied there?

Thanks for the great support. Another satisfied customer.

It was likely a situation where you unplugged the external drive in the middle of a copy...
