Right.. small issue.

I ran superduper (2.5) to clone my macbook's local hard drive to a USB2 drive, as I normally do for a backup.

I then powered down my macbook, took out the local hard drive, and inserted a shiny new bigger one.

I then powered up the macbook, and it booted happily off the USB2 drive, as expected... this is where I am now.

However, after using disk utility to partition etc the new local drive, if I try and use superduper to copy all the data back to the new local drive, I get the following log output:

Not so good...

Anyone have a fix for this? It would be nice to get this data copied back, and the laptop running off the (new) local disk :)
