I have no memory of Open vs Duplicate.

Unfortunately, until I ran SD for the first time I had zero indication that there were any problems with my Mac. In fact, the files it claimed were bad -- I could open.

You were right -- the first time

If it can't be fixed -- by whomever -- the bottom line is that SD can't be used with 10.4.10 without hassles.

And, since some of Apple's new software (e.g., iWork) requires 10.4.10 one has no...

Yes -- you recommend I try this.

While we sort this out, for safety, if I copied /user/steve to the NAS -- would OS X copy everything?

It seems some NAS use FAT32 but have built-in driver that breaks big files into chunks of no more than 4GB each. Supposedly this breaks dmg images. Perhaps that is what's happening here. EN2/3 works...

Second try to NAS -- another failure
