Hmm. Same thing happened a couple of days ago, but this time a full uninstall SD + reboot + reinstall into Apps did not fix it. Any ideas? I'm on 10.6.8

Thanks!

Run a scheduled job on-demand?

I have backups scheduled for 11:00 pm. The "to" drive is normally asleep and unmounted, and SuperDuper mounts it automatically on schedule, does the backup, and then shuts down the computer.

Ah, ok, thank you for checking! I checked and one of my Macs has it, the other does not. No idea why.

True. Perhaps more than one (differently named) "ignore"?

The multi-segment file does not help, all of them appear to get touched by VMWare.

I'd love to learn how current SD + VMWare users...

4 non-portable Macs, from mini to Pro. Not a mansion, but no chance to share a UPS across Macs. I almost never use sleep, just shutdown. Each Mac runs SD backup to its own second...

Power outage during backup

My city has power outages every few weeks, specially in summer. What happens (to either source disk or backup disk) if a SuperDuper backup is running and power is lost?

Is there any way to have the backup keep an archive of changed/deleted files?
