The daily backup of my boot drive runs at 5:00 am. When I got to my Mac this morning, SuperDuper! was open, with the progress bar appearing to indicate the copy was nearly complete.

The log shows these lines at the end:

| 05:33:45 AM | Info | /dev
| 05:33:45 AM | Info | /net
| 05:33:45 AM | Info | /home
| 05:33:45 AM | Info | /Sandbox
| 08:35:06 AM | Info | Disk disk8 mount changed!
| 08:35:16 AM | Info | Disk disk8 mount changed!
| 08:35:16 AM | Info | Disk disk8 vanished!

"disk8" does not appear earlier in log.

What does this mean?

While I was researching this problem here in the forum, SuperDuper! apparently completed, with no Growl notification. Fortunately, I had captured a copy of the SD log in BBEdit while SuperDuper! was stalled.

We're logging disk mount/unmount events during the backup, in case those events can shed light on failures that might occur during a backup operation.

Those mounts are likely Time Machine local (snapshot) or remote (network) volumes.
