Backing up connected network drives
Actually, I don't want SuperDuper to back up a connected network drive. I want it to skip over that drive. It is failing every night on that drive ever since I connected it.

Do I need to write a script that tells it to back up everything on my local machine, but to skip the connected network drives? Does such a script already exist? I am not sure I have the expertise to write a new script.

Would be great if there was some sort of pick list in the UI where you could pick and choose the drives you want it to back up.

Anyone run into this and have a solution?

Thanks much!

If it's mounted normally in /Volumes, we won't back it up... how, exactly, is it failing?

This is the error I am getting:

| 01:52:34 PM | Error | SDCopy: FTS_NS error for item: '/Volumes/UpstairsItunes' err: 60, Operation timed out\n

That means that the volume there has failed at some point, and we can't even 'step past it'. Try restarting.

Restarting my Mac worked! Thanks so much!

Glad I could be of help.
