When making my regular backup, I get the following error message, which I donít understand.

The backup is supposed to be backup of user files. The folder Tex-Edit Plus 4.9.4/Tex-Aid Source contains a lot of applescript files.

Problem solved: I stuffed the Folder Tex-Edit Plus 4.9.4 with DropStuff and then made backup without any errors.

Well... problem worked around, but not solved. Was this something you had just recently downloaded?

Yes - I downloaded Tex-Edit Plus 4.9.4 a few days ago. It downloads as a zip compressed folder and expands just to a folder, not to dmg. Never had any problems with SuperDuper copying previous versions of Tex-Edit. There were some changes made in some of the scripts in this update.

Hm. I'll download it and see if I can reproduce the problem. I can't see how they could create a compressed folder in a way that would prevent us from copying it... perhaps there was something "in the way" on the destination that couldn't be removed due to Copy Newer?
