View Full Version : Make target bootable when source is not bootable after Backup - all files

New registered owner on SD 2.0. love it so far.

One weird behaviour that i observed: Copying all files from Source Volume to Target volume using the built in "Backup - all files" script. The source volume is *not* a volume containing any MacOS, just straight user files (it is not the boot volume, but a second volume in a power mac), yet the script says that in step three its going to make the target volume bootable. What does making the target bootable in this scenario mean? How do i hack the script to not do stage 3 (make target bootable).

thanks

It really checks to see if it needs to make it bootable, and doesn't if not. Don't be concerned about the fact that it's there -- we can't tell beforehand whether or not we need to do it, so we always check.
