Hi Dave--
I bought Office '08 for Mac and installed it on my G5 (tiger 10.4.11). At 9:30, SuperDuper kicked in, and cloned my HD to my external HD. About an hour later, for some reason I checked my backup to see if Office '08 was there...it wasn't. Office '04 still was, until I clicked on it and it 'went away' as did "Office Autoupdater." So..I installed '08 directly to my cloned HD..still didn't show up anywhere except "library/cache/temp items" and even then it was only 144MB instead of the nearly 600MB of the original. So...I reinstalled onto G5 HD and manually started SuperDuper to re-clone. This time everything "took"---any explanation for bizarre event, or should I just worry about world peace and leave it alone?

This was likely due to Finder not refreshing, Lea. That's why the files you saw "vanished" when you clicked on them. No need to worry.
