Hey-

I am currently trying to backup a mount point for about 800 users on OS X 10.4 Server. There is about 60GB used on this drive and my temporary backup drive has around 74GB free space. So I don't believe space is an issue here.

What happens is SuperDuper will backup and usually error out after about 15 min of backing up. Generally this is 20GB copied using a full erase and backup or about 4GB copied using a smart backup. So I suppose eventually it'll backup everything with the smart update though will take several attempts.

I know there may be several 4GB+ files on the mount point (Video Projects) although these existed on another backup that went with no errors.

Anyways, here is the error:

| 02:11:07 PM | Error | SDCopy(10421) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=8421376) failed (error code=3)
| 02:11:08 PM | Error | SDCopy(10421) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region
| 02:11:08 PM | Error | SDCopy(10421) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug
| 02:11:08 PM | Error | SDCopy(10421) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=8421376) failed (error code=3)

| 02:11:08 PM | Error | SDCopy(10421) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug

Any pointers / advice would be wonderful.

Please try turning the "Copy ACLs" option in the Advanced tab of Options off and see if that helps.

That fixed it, however, I do use ACLs. That volume wouldn't be hard to reproduce in the advent of a failure, though it would make my life easier if ACLs did copy.

Understood, of course. The problem is that the ACL APIs have some bugs in them. We've reported the problems to Apple...
