I don't really have enough information here -- send your log in with "Send to shirt pocket", would you?

Thanks!

No -- I want you to send in your SuperDuper! log, not your login. :)

Click the "Send to shirt locket" button in the log window.

I see nothing that says *"Send to shirt Pocket" , *is it the PC version?

I even searched the help files and found no info about it.

There is no PC version. This is in the log window -- click "View Log..." (or "Show Log..."), then at the bottom there's a "Send to shirt pocket" button.

i found it, it seems to be working now although i just checked (8 hours later) the drive is making strange sounds,

I should of mentioned that its a partition of another drive, if you think i can clone my Leopard system like this or not let me know.

I just don't have enough information to say.
I am using a mobile phone to the net, traveling here.,
I tried to upload a txt file of the log and even email, but failed twice , 180k s too much for my phone via BT to internet,

All i can say is that there where tons of errors like this:
| 10:27:45 PM | Info | WARNING: *Caught I/O exception(5): Input/output error

And something did happen to the drive, i get this when i run disk tools:
Verify and Repair volume “MacBook Pro”
Invalid node structure
Volume check failed.

Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.

OK, so that would indicate you have some pretty bad damage on the volume that you're repairing...

yes it seems, it is a 2 partition drive, but i erased it and ran disk utilities and it was fine, after that cloned the boot drive again and the same exact thing happens, the drive says failed, but if i erase it again it will say its fine, so its the OS drive i am cloning that may be bad?


cheers

No, your 'disk structure' wouldn't be copied -- the destination (the one you're repairing) is the one that's corrupting. Might be a communication problem with the drive... bad cable, bad drive...

I just erased it with Disk Utilities again, and again after running verify and repair on the volume it shows that it appears ok., are you suggesting that Apple disk utilities is not trustworthy? :) thanks

No, I'm not saying that at all. Erasing the drive would totally clear the folder structure...

ILL

When you say you "erased it and ran disk utilities," does "it" refer to the entire hard DISK or just to the one volume (partition) you are trying to clone to?

If you are only erasing the one PARTITION's contents, then you are leaving the partitioning scheme on the DISK intact, just as it was. If that is what you are doing, you might try erasing the entire DISK and then repartitioning, making sure you are using the appropriate partitioning scheme.

If you have already done that, then ?????

I erased the whole disk, a few times in fact.

I also tried using time machine just to have some sort of back up, no go with that as well.

If you send in the whole log, using the button as I requested a while ago, I can try to provide you with more guidance.

Make sure you have Apple Mail configured with your account information (even if you don't use it as your main mail program).
