yesterday morning my system drive just failed... no warnings, no heads up it just reported 'failed' to the os (disk utility). i dashed out to buy a replacement, plugged it into the mac pro, booted from the sd backup (taken the night before) and about 2.5 hours later i was able to boot from the new system drive, job done!!!

one question though: the old smart update job of the original system disk to my external FW disk stopped working now. it reports:
| 09:30:08 PM | Error | The automatic copy aborted because SuperDuper! could not locate the Source volume named Macintosh HD 1.
before the restore i named the new system volume to:
Macintosh HD1
instead of:
Macintosh HD 1

after the restore i renamed the volume to what it was before the disk died but SD still throws above error.

should i just drop the old smart update task and start from scratch or is there a way to re-use what i have on the external drive?

thanks a lot,
o

Yes, definitely delete the old scheduled copy: your internal disk is now unquestionably different than it was before, so it needs to be recreated.
