I recently backed up my HD using SD, erased my HD, then copied back using SD. The goal was to defrag my drive, which it did.

Pretty much everything was Ok, with one exception -- many of my fonts were missing. I could not install them, even though they were on the disk. So I deleted the font caches and all was well.

Does SD copy font caches when it should not? Something is screwy.

This is on 10.4.7 iMac G5 Rev B SD 2.1.1

It does copy font caches, and should, but on very rare occasion the cache itself doesn't work. As you've seen, deleting the cache fixes things right up.
