Hey Folks,

Since my personal account is Filevaulted, I am logging out of that and using a different one for my backups with SuperDuper. I am trying to create a copy script that would ignore the iTunes library, which is in my personal account, but backup everything else in the computer.
However, I do not seem to have permission to access my iTunes folder, since that is in my personal account and not the one I use for Super Duper. Arg! How can I solve this?

Since your FileVault volume is one gigantic file, you can't "cut" part of it out of the image and leave it behind, Stephen...

When you're logged into the account, though, you can see your FileVault account as a "volume" which can be selected, and then you could ignore the iTunes music from in there. But you wouldn't want to back up the whole computer while logged in like that -- just the FileVault volume.
