Hi,

Today I got a strange message during SuperDuper!'s daily backup to my Maxtor Firewire 800 drive. After the backup's been running for a few minutes, i got this Growl alert:

SuperDuper! Copy Failed
System Events got an error: connection is invalid

The strange thing is that the copy still proceeded as normal, and finished successfully.

I'm SD 2.6.1 (V86) under OSX 10.6.1

Thanks for any info.

Mike

That means System Events (part of OS X) returned an error when we were trying to ask it to do something. I'd restart your Mac, Mike.

Thanks for the reply Dave; I'll do a restart.

I just encountered precisely the same error after an early morning scheduled smart update of my boot drive backup. The log file showed a successful copy.

As an experiment, I'm going to delay restarting as see what happens tomorrow morning.

I'm tardy reporting back. Without restarting, SuperDuper! has reported a successful overnight backup each morning since February 22.
