View Full Version : SD giving me odd error message

08-26-2010, 05:36 PM

I'm trying to do a complete file backup on a new disc. However, I'm getting this error message Disk image "/Volumes/My Book Vol.1/Music Programs Backup.sparseimage" is not writable or the path is invalid.

First, the name of the backup drive is The Way Back Machine and SD finds it with no problem. I've tried re-partitioning the drive as well as repairing permissions on the drive I want to copy but I still get the same message.

Second, the "What's going to happen" script tells me that, after the copy is finished, a restorable image of The Way Back Machine will be saved as Music Programs Backup.sparesimage. Why the different name? Thanks John

Looks like you've turned on the 'imaging' option in the advanced tab of Options, John. Thrn that off... I think that'll fix everything.

Actually, I just uninstalled the old version and reinstalled the new one and everything seems fine! Go figure. The old version must have retained some information from a long time ago. Oh well, no worries now. Thanks

That's weird, but I'm glad you're all set.
