im backing up a drive that holds my iphoto and itunes libraries.
thats all thats on this disk ... it doesnt have any OS on there.

what reasons are there for not coping over files?
theres no way of telling which ones were excluded either, is there?

cheers :)

If you look at the log, it should -- for the most part -- indicate what files were ignored. Also, if you open the copy script that's being used (I assume it's "Backup - all files"), you can see a full list of all the folders we ignore.
