super duper dies as soon as I click "copy now" and enter the password authentication and click "copy". why?

choices are:

Copy: Macintosh HD
to: Untitled 1

Using: Backup - all files

During copy: Smart update Untitled 1 from Macintosh HD

Before copy: repair disk permissions is checked

Copy ACLs is checked in advanced

You probably copied the SuperDuper! program from another Mac, rather than installing it on this one. Re-lock and re-unlock the lock in the main window. That should fix it.

Hi there,

I click the lock and enter my password and the lock never unlocks. I reinstalled 2.7.1 on my machine and still the same thing happens.

what else can I try here?

Are you sure you're running SuperDuper! from your startup drive? Sounds like you launched it from Spotlight and it might be running off something else.

I am going to finder -> command-a -> double click superduper.app
is how I am running it.

OK, Noah. Please send email to me at the support email address and I'll get more information from you (I don't want you to post system logging and stuff publicly).

Same Problem. New Macbook Pro. Mountain Lion. And latest version of Super Duper. When I first installed yesterday it erased the old backup on the external hard drive and copied everything on the new computer and indexed. Since then it has crashed every time I click "Copy". I tried locking and unlocking. I am launching from spotlight/applications/Super Duper. Help anybody?
