Hi there.
I have some problem with the scheduled auto backup. What i would like to do it, for every 3 days, I do a complete system back up, and each day between the complete system back up, I do incremental backup.

So yesterday i setup a testing environment, and I have the configuration as the following:
--Every day at 5:10 pm, I schedule a complete system backup, writing to a sparse image on the network storage. The sparse image is named as "backup". The backup type is "back up all files" with "erase and copy" option.

-Every day at 2:30 am, 4:30am and 6:30 am, I scheduled 3 different incremental backups. The settings are identical except starting time. They have the following settings: the destination is also "backup". Backup type is "backup all files " with "Copy different" option.

I left my office at 5 yesterday and allow my mac to do the back up testing scheme it self. When I came back this morning...

Only the initial full system backup was successful. All incremental backups were failed.

I will post the backup log. and please tell me why this is happening. Thanks.

I checked my system-energy saving settings.
If the laptop is on AC, then it never sleep. the screen will turn off after 15 min. So i do not think it is a weekup issue.

And from the log, I can see it is determined to be a mounting issue. My question is, why this is happening? I used exactly the same mounting configuration as the full backup. And when I came back this morning, I actually noticed that the sparse image is mounted on my mac (very much like mounting a dmg file). So how can I actually configure the SD to acheive the back up scheme I proposed in my initial post?

The problem in all of these backups is that the image is already mounted when the backup starts. If you eject the image, they should work fine.
