Please help, i am new to this.

My imac local HD available free space suddenly depleted by 80+gig. The cause I believe is I have super duper scheduled backup every sundays, and last sunday I took off my WD external.
So did super duper still make the scheduled backup but create the image in the local HD? If it did, I couldnt find the image.
One more remark, super duper seemed to have created My Book 2 and 3, but i cant locate them.

please help, I need to restore my 80+gig. Many thanks

It shouldn't have, rony; do you have the log from the last scheduled copy? I'd like to see it, if you could copy/paste it in (or send it to me via email).

Open the scheduled copies window (Window > Scheduled Copies), click the schedule, then "Show Log".

OK. Please use Finder's "Go To Folder" command and open

/Volumes

In there, look for folders (NOT links or aliases). Delete those to recover the space.

Note that they'd only be there if the external drive had failed... which it must have in the past...

dnanian, thank you thank you.

I found the extra sparseimage and deleted it and i recovered my 80gig back. If you dot mind me asking again, I found My book, my book 1,2, and 3 in there. The content of My Book 3 is the one that represent my actual ext drive. But my ext on the desktop is called just My Book, while the "volume" My Book is empty. So wht do I do now? Do I have to set my super duper again? Thank you again for your help.

Once you delete the folders and restart, it'll go back to just "MyBook".
