View Full Version : Trouble cloning Tiger 10.41

05-21-2005, 11:09 AM
Sorry if this has been asked before but I could not find anything.
I'm using erase and copy all files.
During permission repair I see the following:
users/shared/SC info does not exist

As soon as cloning starts SD gives me an error, here's a snip from the log:

Any help appreciated, Thx!

The SC thing from Repair Permission is normal and has nothing to do with SD!

The other problem, from what I can tell, is because Spotlight is aggressively hitting the drive. Wait until spotlight is totally done indexing, and then back up...

Spotlight is now completely finished but I still get the same SD error and log info. THX.

That's strange. Have you tried rebooting?

05-22-2005, 11:07 AM
Yep, tried rebooting.
In the mean time I've managed to create a bootable Tiger clone with Deja Vu, so I'm still wondering what's going on with SuperDuper?

I'm really not sure. We're doing nothing weird here, and I've been doing Tiger clones for quite a few months without issue. We've seen a few people get this "Temporarily Unavailable" message, and it seems to have to do with Tiger.

Why Deja Vu would be able to copy the files I don't know: perhaps the Cocoa calls for file copying are more stringent about error checking and flagging these unusual resource issues: certainly that's what the error is coming from.

I might suggest trying a temporary spotlight disable for both the source and destination drives. If you're comfortable at the command line, you can do:

sudo mdutil -i off / "/Volumes/Mac HD_2"

and then, when the backup is done, do:

sudo mdutil -i on / "/Volumes/Mac HD_2"

But -- again -- this shouldn't be necessary.

It could also be that this particular file is marked "Busy" for some reason (even though it shouldn't be, as far as I can tell), and that's preventing copying. Booting from the Tiger install DVD and checking the disk with Disk Utility might help, but you're failing so *early* in the process -- only a few seconds in -- that it doesn't really make sense to me.

Anyone else out there seeing anything like this?

Problem has disappeared mysteriously is it has arisen. :confused:
Thx anyway :)
