Permissions on Leopard Clones
 
Just finished upgrading to Mac's 10.5 (Leopard)
SD's been grinding away for 20 min, and it's still on Repairing Permissions!

Is that normal?

Repair permissions is slow under Leopard (we simply ask Disk Utility to do it). I'd just turn that option off.

ok- thanks. It seems to be ok now,

Maybe I jumped the gun, or maybe the mac was maxed out on ram, and running super slow. In any case, I restarted, and ran it all again, and the cloning seemed back to normal.

On a similar subject, I can see that with the slower iBook speed,
as my HD load roars past 50 GB, even SmartUpdate cloning takes over an hour- 'evaluating' I guess.

Is there a link to help me program SD to further refine the 'SmartUpdate' criteria?

We're not evaluating for the most part; if it's taking over an hour, it's likely because a lot of files are being copied, you still have Repair Permissions on, or you're running an AntiVirus program...

You were right. 1st time Leopard permissions take a long time.

Be aware that after upgrading to Leopard,
my HD (about 60 Gb of data) needed 1+ hour to do permissions!
And that was after all 10.4 permissions were repaired, just before upgrading.

SD was most likely NOT hung up- just grinding away. <g>

repair permissions is quicker in 10.5.7 for me
 
I've turned repair permissions back on after the 10.5.7 update, it seems to be pretty quick for me now, in the 3-5 min range. Before the 10.5.7 update, I had turned if off for the same reasons mentioned above in the this thread, and suggested by Dave.
