I can set up a schedule, if I close SD & open it right away, my schedule is gone.

That's weird, Rich. How do you verify the schedule?

Don't know what you mean by verify. I set up the schedule, close SD, then open it again & check the schedule window & it's gone.

Any errors in the console when you schedule your copy?

If by console you mean the window called scheduled copies, no. It's as if I didn't even schedule it.

No, by Console I meant the "Console" application. You can open that, clear it, then try scheduling and see if any error appears.

OK. Please run

crontab -l

(that's a lower case L) in Terminal and copy/paste the result into a reply. Or we can move this to support, since I don't think it's going to be useful to most people here on the forum...

Well, interesting, there they all are. Looks like you've created six schedules or so. If you look in Library/Application Support/SuperDuper!/Scheduled Copies (off your Home folder), is there anything in there?

richci

Yes, there are nine entries

Well... that's curious. The way we can tell if there are schedules is if there are crontab entries and corresponding scripts.

Well, let's try clearing them all out and starting again. Make sure SD! isn't running, then please delete all the files in Scheduled Copies and then, in Terminal, type:

crontab -r

followed by Return. Then, do one schedule and let's see if it works.

Make sure you don't hit the Schedule button a second time: just look at the Scheduled Copies window (it'll be restored if you quit SD! with it open) to verify the presence of the schedule.
