I've been consistently seeing this same message for months. I can't image networking problems being the cause because I get it even when I have data actively streaming over the network (X over ssh,...

I'd suggest taking this into consideration as a backup strategy. The idea that there must be enough free space to include old AND new files doesn't seem to be useful.

If it's a firewire drive that plays well with OS X, it should work fine for being able to boot from a backup. I've used a variety of external drives with no problems. (Be sure the partition map type...

TMay,

Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't take the time to read through that section of the manual closely because of the example. I was able to create a script that does the copy correctly,...

Sounds like you got it right.

I was in a similar boat. I upgraded an iMac to 10.5, but something go messed up BAD.

Question Backup directory rather than volume?

I've played with this some. If I use 7-bit ASCII, then the scheduling works. If I don't, the scheduling doesn't work. Is this a bug or OS X limitation?

If from the "Scheduled Copies" window, I...

I can use the "Copy Now" button on the "Scheduled Copies" window to trigger SD, but the timer portion doesn't work.

I should have thought about doing that for testing. *massive duh*

No, it doesn't seem to work. I set it for a few minutes in the future, and have waited for a few minutes after the set time. I...

Trouble with scheduled backups

I've been pulling my hair out over this for some time, so I'm going to bare my ignorance here. I think I may have been staring at the manual too long and must be missing something that is staring me...

Red face OOPS! Leopard - am I in trouble?

I didn't think about checking if SD was Leopard compatible before upgrading my main workhorse machine. DOH! :eek:

My primary purpose of using SD is disaster recovery. I'm backing up to a disk...

Doh!

I have a note here from some months ago about rebooting when encountering IOKit oddities.

Cool FYI: Mirrored drives

For those that ask, yes, it IS possible to mirror a pair of external drives. The only trick is:
