I attempted to do a backup to 1 TB SD! volume on a partitioned 2-year-old WD My Book Essential USB 3.0 drive. The last time I used this particular drive was about 8 months, right around the time I got my current iMac, so I initially thought about erasing the drive first, but then thought that since there was certainly enough data on it that hadn't changed, I could save time by simply letting SD! run its Smart Update. However, after about an hour, SD! quit while in Step #2 (Copy Files) with a "failed to copy files" message. Here's part of the log:

so it seems like things got hung up when trying to copy an old mailbox (possibly one that had been trashed?).

Diagnosis? Suggestions?

This almost always means the destination drive has some corruption. Use Disk Utility's right hand "Repair disk" button to repair the drive, restart your Mac and try again.

Yup...that did it. Thanks, Dave!
