View Full Version : SD clone fails to complete

06-10-2009, 03:22 PM
I attempted to perform a smart backup of a boot drive which failed with an error message. I erased the target drive with Disk Utility and tried a complete backup with SD, but got an error message and SD stopped at that point.

Here is the last of the log report:

| 12:20:48 PM | Error | SDCopy: Error "Operation not permitted" encountered while setting HFS meta data for /Volumes/Macintosh HD Backup 2/usr/share/zoneinfo/Cuba of type: 8\n: Operation not permitted

Any ideas?

I found this thread (http://www.shirt-pocket.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5166) while doing a Google search for the error message I received. I decided to try reinstalling the most recent Combo Update instead of performing a clean installation to see if it would work. After deleting the problem file from the target drive I performed a smart update of the source drive which seems to be working.

I have not found the problem file in the source drive though.

Thanks for looking

This is some subtle damage to the source drive that can usually be fixed with Disk Warrior, if you've got that...
