Hi,

I'm trying SuperDuper! It has to "back - all files" from an external hard-drive to another external harddrive. I scheduled do to it everyday at 17.00 o'clock. I set my computer to wake up at 16.55.

But very often, Even when I'm working on my mac SuperDuper doesn't do a thing.:mad:

What did I wrong?

"Very often"? It's not *consistent*, Ief?

Indeed not very consistent. The last week it seems to work fine...

So probably I did something wrong!

At this very moment SuperDuper! is running...

thanks,

Ief

In general, you should set the wake event to one minute before the backup time. Otherwise, you Mac might think it's a "bounce" wake and go right back to sleep. That said, when you're "working on your Mac", it should certainly run, hence my question.

o.k., I set my computer to wake up 1 minute before SD! kicks off. Thanks for helping.
