Can anyone shed some light on what this means...

type 8 due to error 1\n: Operation not permitted

I'm doing a backup all files to an external USB drive. I've been doing this for a year every few days without any problems. All of a sudden today its not working.

Thanks in advance,
Tyler

Maybe this will help:

Backup failed (http://www.shirt-pocket.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6097)

Btw, found that topic with a Google search for the error. :)

Yep...I found that and tried it. Didn't help. I also reinstalled OS X, and a million other things. No idea.

Send the log in with the Send to shirt pocket button so I can take a look. It sounds like the source volume may need to be repaired with Disk Warrior (assuming the destination isn't full)...
