If it works

and it does, no need to muck with it. There isn't anything missing that I can imagine.

So long as you all stay in business.

There might be a use for a supported product like Winclone.

I've had trouble with Western Digital external drives myself. It looks like Seagate as of now is only doing USB 2 and USB 3 drives, though (looking for one to backup my wife's iMac yesterday). Even...

Auto shut down

For whatever little it helps, I can get my Mac Pro to either sleep or shutdown automatically after an SD job completes.

Eh? why would you want to copy those? The next time the partition boots up, they'd just be created.

OK, thanks for the info.

SuperDuper and Metadata

I use SD 2.5 as my primary backup (with TimeMachine going to another volume). Before Leopard, the general feeling was that SD was one of the few ways to get a backup with all the metadata preserved...

Scheduled jobs not running

The same thing for me with Leopard; under Tiger, the machine would always fo the scheduled backup. Under Leopard, never. The log shows nothing; no error messages in red, nothing in the system or...

Is there any point to repairing permissions if you aren't having a problem, these days? Under Leopard it takes forever, and then usually reports things that aren't a problem anyway.

DiskWarrior and DriveGenius and the like only seem to work with Leopard if you boot from their CD/DVD. New versions are promised but not ready yet.

After an archive and install, I've had crashes...

2nd place

I expect that most of the CCC users don't pay, worse luck for Mike B.

Backup software

I think with backup software I'd rather know something didn't work than use something that other people have reported errors on that I didn't see myself. The worst situation is thinking you have a...

Sync latop and desktop

I do something like this, usually just my documents folder, with Chronosync (there are plenty of other programs like it). I've done it with my whole user folder, but it strikes me that some...

CCC and SD

For some reason I feel products like these all need to be supported, so I've paid for both SD and CarbonCopyCloner. A programmer or company who cares enough to try to do a good job needs support.

SD And Time Machine

I'm using Time Machine, but that once an hour backup always seems to come on when I'm doing something else, and it slows the heck out of everything. It's nice to have the backup, but it's nice to...

Ccc

I also tried updating a clone backup with CCC. It worked, but gave an error message that it could not delete some Toast 8.0 directory on the target. I've no idea what it meant, but it doesn't give...

Perspective

There are still things that don't work quite right with third party products and Vista, over a year after its release. Video drivers are often still buggy; and there are still plenty of things that...

Given the profound changes in Leopard, it's not surprising it's taking a while. I'm on my third install of Leopard. I'm not at all sure that Time Machine works all that well; when it was doing a...

Ready when?

The minor little points that you guys seem to be taking so long to get right are the things that make restores from an SD backup work so well. In theory, you can boot from the Leopard DVD and restore...

That's what I thought. If SD got corrupt, it wouldn't run.

I suspect those partitions were corrupt before the crash, but I can't think how I could check that. I've never had corruption like that...

Disk corruption

That's pretty much what I thought; although why the connected drives would get corrupted and not the main drive I can't understand. I upgraded to SD 2.14 last night and did an erase and full clone...

Crash on sleep after clone

Unplugging the Palm TX before seems to fix this issue.

With 10.4.8, there are strange error messages in the system log about a USB device, which only appear if the TX is plugged in. It's like...

Crash on sleep after clone

Since I've upgraded to 10.4.8 and gotten an 8 gig iPod Nano, I am unable to get SD to get my G5 to sleep after cloning. The clone completes successfully, the machine starts to go to sleep; a few...
