My backup fails. The script is the standard "Backup - all files". The message in the window is

"Failed to erase Mac OS X Install DVD"

Note: the volume named "Mac OS X Install DVD" is a read-write 4.7 GB disk image created and mounted with Disk Utility.


The log file is:

This looks like an internal error, but maybe I don't know what I am talking about...

Thanks,

I unmounted the destination volume, remounted it, and this time, it worked...

Some gremlin I guess.
