View Full Version : "Copy Job" Script Freezes SD

08-12-2007, 09:57 PM
I have SD scheduled to run a "smart update" of an existing image every Sunday at 5:30 p.m. Today at 5:30, a dialog box popped up with the title "Copy Job" and the text "Press Run to run this script, or Quit to quit." I tried clicking both buttons, but nothing happened it was frozen.

Opening Activity Monitor and inspecting the process indicated that it was initiated by SD. The first line in the "open files and ports" window was:

/Users/Richard/Library/Application Support/SuperDuper!/Scheduled Copies/Smart Update MacPro Image Weekly from MacPro1.sdsp/Copy Job.app/Contents/MacOS/applet

I was able to force quit the process without difficulty, and I then manually initiated the SD job. Any suggestions as to how I can avoid this "Copy Job" problem next Sunday?

Actually, it's not so much that it was frozen, as the script execution environment didn't really have control of the screen, so it wasn't able to get a response to your prompt.

That script shouldn't prompt at all, actually. Try deleting your existing schedule and recreating it.

Okay, that's what I did. We'll see what happens this Sunday!
