I'm trying to do a Smate Update and I keep getting this error. The log keeps showing the following:

Am I doing something wrong? How do I fix this?

No, I don't think you're doing anything wrong: it looks like Spotlight is working hard on the drive that's being backed up, and for some reason that's causing the index to not be copyable.

v2.0 handles this differently, but for now wait until Spotlight has stopped indexing your drive (the magnifying glass has a dot in its middle that should stop flashing), and then do your backup. At that point, it should work OK.

You should also take a look at the FAQ: I've written an entry that explains how to use SuperDuper! to disable indexing on the backup drive, which might prove useful to you as well.

Thanks, I'll try that and read up on your FAQ's and report back.

Sounds good. I'll await your reply.

I followed the FAQs about getting spotlight to wait and finish indexing and I tried the script that disables Spotlight and I eneded up getting the same error. Here's a bit of the end of the log file:

Any help? I want to get this drive copied as I need to send it into the shop for repair or replacement very soon.

In this case, it looks like you're getting an I/O error either reading or writing the file, which might be caused by a surface error on the drive.

Let's try re-creating the index. In Terminal, do the following:

sudo mdutil -i off / /SetiAlphaFive

Then, do the backup (at this point, your indexing is off for both drives). When done, do:

sudo mdutil -i on /

That'll turn indexing back on for the boot drive (and it'll recreate your index, too).
