Would appreciate any help.

Trying to make a backup copy of my boot drive onto an external lacie firewire drive. Ran SD and got an error halting backup message. Should I stop running all applications when I try to clone the drive? (I was playing some music, surfing the web, and copying over some other files onto a different partition). Here's the relevant logfile info.

as I noticed in some of the other posts, the problem seemed to be with the file. I ended up just deleting the file/directory since I can live without growl and am currently trying the clone again. I did happen to look at the general (not super duper) console log and found this (which could explain what the problem with the file was)

2005-10-04 10:07:09.487 System Preferences[495] Tried to init a ticket from this file, but it isn't a ticket file: /Users/jimmy/Library/Application Support/Growl/Tickets/SpamSieve.growlTicket

If I am understanding this correctly, the file says it's a growl ticket, but it isn't recognized as one - it's probably a corrupted ticket file.

That's right -- it's a corrupt file. You've got it exactly -- probably on a bad spot on the drive.
