I've been doing smart copy backups for quite some time with SD. Tonight, the backup failed. The following errors were found at the end of the log file. Can anyone help?

| 11:45:19 PM | Info | Error copying /Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher/.yCuCgFAeioFvwCAhjsqkAiyyhg to /Volumes/WD500_external/Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher/.yCuCgFAeioFvwCAhjsqkAiyyhg of type 8 due to error 1

Try repairing the source volume (after starting up from your OSX install disc).

Thanks. After I repaired the disk, the backup finished normally.

I had repaired the disk in the past, just as a precaution, but never by starting up from the install disc. Not sure if that was the deciding factor, as the SD error was new, but it definately worked. Thanks again.
