Migration Assistant doesn't see SuperDuper backup
 
Hi - using Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Migration Assistant doesn't see the volume that is my SuperDuper external HD backup. System Preferences/Startup Disk can locate and display the drive fine and I can get to it via 'Finder'. I want to selectively choose what to bring back rather than a full restore.

Any ideas - the Mac Forum has drawn a blank! Thanks

Migration Assistant doesn't see it, even if you point to it as a "Volume"?

Hi - thanks, forgive my ignorance but I'm not sure what that means. I don't get any options in Migration Assistant. Once I've selected "from another volume on this mac" and clicked the 'continue' button, all I get is an empty window with no volumes visible. Does that make sense?

Yes. I don't know why your volume wouldn't be there, Nigel. You wrote directly to it, it was a bootable backup, and you've tested it (by starting up from it) previously?

Hi - yes, its been absolutely fine, I can start from it and see it. Its really bugging me and pretty frustrating! :-(

Perhaps Apple might have an idea. Of course, you can restore from it if you can boot from it...

yeah, thanks, Apple forum drawn a blank hence my note to you guys. Perhaps I'll do the restore and live with the possible consequences -its weird. Apprecaite the attempt though. Cheers Nigel :-)
