I am using the trial version since I have been having some problems with Carbon Copy Cloner in cloning my Powerbook G4 17" to my OWC firewire external HD. I have created a partition on the Firewire drive that matches the size of my laptop drive, I zeroed out all of the data, started SuperDuper and am getting an error from the get-go. Here is my log data with my error at the bottom:

Any suggestions on how I can move forward here?

Alas, this is a bug: if your destination volume name has a quote in it, and you use "Erase, then copy" as your copy method, we fail. It's fixed in the next version of SuperDuper.

The solution is to either use "Smart Update" instead, or rename the destination so it doesn't have a quote in its name.

Sorry for the hassle!
