OK, but I just don't see what it needs to be busy with. I mean, if I have a scheduled backup at 2am, what really needs to happen at 5:00pm, 5:01pm, 5:02pm or 5:03pm? I'm not familiar with how...

OK, thanks. No question it isn't loading down my OS, but what in the world does it need to do every single minute??? My timed backups are once a day. Can't understand what it needs to be doing every...

Whoa. OK. So the frantic activity of sdbackupbytime didn't even have anything to do with the disk backup I just did? By that token, I guess the answer to my question is that sure, when the backup is...

Ah, OK. Thank you. So the frantic disk activity wasn't connected to the frantic OS activity with sdbackupbytime that was being reported on Console. But that's ALL that Console was reporting. If it...

Most of my backups are automatic. In the wee hours of the morning, when I can't monitor them. But every month or so, I...

Let's try this again. I'm tooling along on my Mac at 9:30pm last night, and SuperDuper suddenly starts a copy. Huhhh? My backup copies have always been scheduled for 2:30am. In fact, that morning it...

Yes, the schedule isn't actually changing. In fact, a NEW, second scheduled run is somehow being created. Yesterday, somehow, a second run was scheduled at 9:30pm (on the same days as my 2:30am run)....

So I have SuperDuper set up to always do my backups at 2:30am. But every once in a while, I'm working in waking hours and BOOM, SuperDuper starts copying. I say whaaat?, stop it, and look at the...

Roger that. If the OS doesn't want you to do it, SuperDuper probably should not encourage you to do it.

repair permissions?

SuperDuper (I'm now using 3.2.4 v118.e) looks like it is supposed to offer the option to repair permissions before copy. At least there is a "Before copy" in "Options" check box that I think I'm...

Thank you. I have done that. Now, this isn't a big deal, as the backup is being done properly (twice), but something is amiss.

double SuperDuper run

SuperDuper has been working fine for me for years. I do a scheduled daily backup in the middle of each night, and see a notification on my screen in the morning that it did the backup properly. But...

Thank you. Wow, swap files, sleep images, temporary files, etc. can really take up a lot of room. I had no idea.

sizes?

I'm a little confused. My hard disk (iMac 10.11.6) shows, in the Finder - GetInfo, that the size "used" is 88.4 GB. I do a SD clone, and the size of that clone looks to be 76.1 GB. Given that...

Thanks, Dave. But as I said, SuperDuper TRIED to copy my slightly oversized volume, until it got to the end and realized that it couldn't. Also, it just took a minute for me to look at the partition...
