View Full Version : v2 scheduled backup works, but "AppleEvent" times out

11-28-2005, 11:02 AM
I upgrading to SuperDuper! 2.0 (v75), and created a new "SmartUpdate" backup to backup my Macintosh HD drive to an external firewire drive. After creating a scheduled event to run this every morning at 3:30am, I'm now getting "Daily Backup.app, AppleEvent timed out" dialog when I check my computer every morning.

The log shows the backup was successful, and even that the app was closed on completion, as that was an extra selection I made in "general". But I still get that error. Could this be a hold over from the previous version of SuperDuper!?

I took a peek at my crontab, and I do see 2 entries in there, one at 3:20am for Daily Backup.app, and one for another superduper event.

20 3 * * * /usr/bin/open "/Applications/Daily Backup.app"

30 3 * * * open file:///Users/rhuk/Library/Application\%20Support/SuperDuper\%21/Scheduled\%20Copies/Smart\%20Update\%20G-Drive\%20from\%20Macintosh\%20HD\%201.sdsp/Copy\%20Job.app

The thing is i DELETED both and recreated the scheduled event with SuperDuper! 2.0, and it recreated both cron events.

Any ideas what's going on?

You'll definitely want to get rid of the old "Daily Backup" event. Do this when SD! isn't running, since it might have cached your crontab...
