Hi,

I'm liking SuperDuper! but... I've tried using the 'Backup - user files' script and it doesn't seem to copy everything. Most stuff seems to have been copied, but in my ~/Documents directory only 2 of the 28 directories have been copied. I can't see anything different about these two in terms of ownership/permissions, so I'm stumped as to why this has happened. And, more importantly, how to back all my files up!

Thanks.

Fabius --

I'm assuming you're checking by looking in the Finder. Unfortunately, the Finder doesn't always update when it should, and likely isn't showing you the real contents of the drive.

Try Control-Option-Clicking on the Finder icon in the dock, and asking it to relaunch. Then, check the folders again -- I think you'll find all the files are there.

Wow, you're quick!

And yes, you're right. That pesky Finder lag will be the death of me! Thanks so much for the speedy (and accurate) response.
