View Full Version : More than one Scheduled Copy... How?

07-22-2011, 05:29 AM

I used to have my backups running at 7am with finally ejecting my backup drive so that not by any chance the backup got compromised somehow.

Now I thought that it would be nice to have SuperDuper! automatically repair HD permissions every fourth week. This led me to the logic of three scheduled copies:

1st, 2nd, 3rd week, everyday - do the normal backup.
4th week, Monday to Saturday - do the normal backup.
4th week, Sunday - do the normal backup and before that check HD permissions.

Normally I would make my settings in the main window, click "Schedule..." and define when these things should happen as described in the user's manual. But this does not work.

Everytime I click "Schedule..." in the main window (v 2.6.4 on OSX Lion) the already existing scheduled copy will be modified, but no new one is created. I followed exactly what is said in the user's guide-pdf, but I do not manage to create a second or third scheduled copy...

Am I doing something wrong, is this a feature, or a bug?

I just discovered how to do it by trial and error:

Press ALT and Click "Schedule..." to get a new copy.

Option, exactly. This is new, because too many people (most) were accidentally creating extra schedules when they thought they were editing the time of existing ones.
