View Full Version : Error while Cloning

I am a registered user of SuperDuper! and I was able to make full backups and partial backups until about a week or so ago when I kept getting the same error:
An error occured that halted execution

Here is what the SuperDuper!.log shows:

I reviewed many other posts that report errors, but they don't all have the same error. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That's kind of strange, Rich. What I'd suggest is doing a single Erase, then copy, to see if that clears up the error. Then, you can switch back to using Smart Update again.
