View Full Version : Feature request: Easier-to-access logs

So I set up my new machine with SuperDuper! last night. I attached an external hard drive with two partitions: Brown Manual, and Brown Auto. I set up a schedule so SuperDuper! will smart update Brown Auto every night at 2:05am, then did a (manual) smart update to Brown Manual. (I chose 2:05am because I wanted to be sure the manual update would complete before the auto update started.)

THis morning I went to SuperDuper! and looked at the log. It gave me full details of the auto, which completed successfully. But I have *no* idea how the manual update went.

1) How do I find the log for the manual run?

2) Could we perhaps make it easier to find/check the logs? Maybe a new Logs window, very similar to the Scheduled Copies window, but with one more column for status?

Source Dest Finish Status
====== ====== ====== ======
Mac HD Auto 3:54am OK
Mac HD Manual 1:06am INTERRUPTED

And maybe clicking an entry would take you to the full log for that particular run?

If the above is too ambitious, how about just letting me specify a path to which logs could be appended, so I could at least search through them with grep and emacs?

THanks for listening, and thanks a ton for SuperDuper!

For the manual one, open the main window and choose "Window > Show Log".

Thanks for the other suggestion.
