Hi, I'm running a Sandbox update (Shared Users and Applications) on to a 20 Gig partition. All used to be fine in the past, but today it suddenly stops because there's not enough room for GarageBand files. I have to say that I installed all JamPacks out there -- thats a whopping 28+ Gig of stuff.

Here's my recommendation for a future version of SuperDuper! -- to include a script that excludes those files. Under "Edit selected Copy Script" I can see that SuperDuper already sports some scripts like this, for example to "exclude Norton FileSaver files".

Here are the folders that should be excluded:

/Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Instrument Library/Sampler
...was in my case 11.5 GB :eek:

/Library/Audio/Apple Loops
...was in my case 16 GB :eek:

Sincerely, Martin.

Hi, Martin. We know that these files (and others) can be large, but we don't share them because they're part of an application that can end up being updated by OSX updates...
