That's strange. Open the "Console" application, clear it, then try again. Do you get any diagnostics in Console?

Thanks, here is what i have in the console :
Tracker: Unrecognized host ( Please go to to sign-up or login.

what is that ?

should i repair permissions as well ? How do i do that ?
thanks a lot for your help

That's what you get when you start SuperDuper and press "Copy Now"? That looks to me like it's part of a Torrent you're downloading.

I suppose I'd suggest re-downloading and installing SuperDuper. Delete the copy you have now.

Thanks, i am gonna try that now.

It sounds like it's misinstalled or damaged... is this installed in your /Applications folder?

ynot 06-02-2006 12:30 PM

no it's on my desktop. Should i re download another version and install it in the application folder ?
i am using a MacBookPro if it makes a difference.

By the way, how do i repair permissions ?
Thanks a lot !

I'd re-download and install in /Applications, yes. There's no need to repair permissions right now, so don't do that: this isn't a permission issue.

Great ! It works now ! thank you for your support !
Now a little tip. Is it ok to do a full back up while working on my MBP ? or is it really better to do it at night ?

That depends entirely on what you're doing. If you're doing "general" things, without a lot of disk I/O, it's OK to work while backing up. If you're downloading files, recording video or the like, it'll cause problems.

working great ! Thanks for your help. Great Software. ! :)

I have a similar problem
I just bought and installed SD and cannot get past the main dialog box. The buttons at the bottom of the box are grayed out! Options, Schedule and Copy Now are disabled. Any help? Lucy

Please try removing the "SuperDuper!" folder in Library/Application Support off your Home folder... that should do it.
