I am new to this generation of Macs and I just started using SD to back up my system. The first automated backup of my primary drive proceeded uneventfully until it reached Phase 3, which generated the following error message - I am not sure what this means. Is my backup corrupted in any way? Did the backup not work? What is the significance of this failure?

Thanks for your help.
Regards,
Martin

This usually means you have two backups scheduled for the exact same time. Normally that'd be fine, but Leopard has a weird problem where this can end up launching multiple copies of SuperDuper!, which can cause this temporary file to give an error.

If you didn't intend to have two schedules, delete the one(s) you don't want. If you did, set one to run ONE minute before the other(s).
