View Full Version : Schedules Duplicating Themselves?

12-07-2006, 06:06 PM
Hi All,

I have a user with an intel mackbook @ 10.4.8, he has a scheduled smart-backup every night at 2:00am but he noticed something wierd lately and asked if I could shed any ligh on it. If one looks at his schedules, instead of seeing the one smart-copy that should be there you would now see the same schedule copied 5 times all labeled "Smart Copy HD" for 2:00am, "Smart Copy HD 1" for 2:10a, "Smart Copy HD 2" for 2:20am, etc. but in the schedule menu there is no option to 'Duplicate' an entry and I am fairly sure that this user did not make them so I am not sure why this may have happened. Does anyone know howor why this might have happened? Also, if you look at the logs you will see that all of these backups run fine one right after the other, although the later ones don't have anything to copy since there just doing the smart copy and nothing has changed. I have deleted the duplicates but any advice would be extremely helpful if this problem should come back.

This happened because you clicked "Schedule..." again to "check" the schedule. That creates a new one.

Instead, simply open the Scheduled Copies window from the Window menu. (If you leave it open, we'll maintain its state the next time you start, too.)
