View Full Version : Scheduling backup

11-03-2009, 07:32 AM
Since downloading the newest version of SuperDuper, I find that
in the schedule panel, I can't set the time to schedule a copy.
The "Start Copying At" box is there, the adjusters are there, there are just no digits inside the time box.
If I tell the schedule box "OK" it sets the scheduled day of the week and week of the month OK, but
the time is stuck at 9:30PM
I tried deleting the plist. No help.

Running Leopard on an Intel iMac.

I'll appreciate your assistance

Have you deleted and recreated the schedule?

Yes, I've done that Dave. No help. I still get an empty box where the
time digits should be.

If I click on the Up/Down time adjust buttons, there is no effect. The schedule
I'm trying to set, still defaults, if you will, to 9:30.

I re-downloaded SuperDuper from the website and replaced the version I downloaded last night. No difference.

Well... the control there is the standard Apple date/time control. Perhaps your "Region" setting, or your date/time format defaults, are set incorrectly?

Dave, all of that looks normal and hasn't been messed with.
Region is correct, time and date are correct, coming off daylight savings went without a hitch.

OK. Please delete any existing schedules. Quit SD!, then remove the "Saved Settings" folder in Library/Application Support/SuperDuper! (off your Home folder).

Once that's done, start SD! again and see if it works as expected.

Dave I tried removing the Saved Settings folder. No help.
For what it's worth, that folder was empty.

OK. Let's go to email so I can have you try some things and send additional information. Doesn't make much sense...

Ok with me.
