Hap

Realize this is late and you may no longer be reading this. Plus, I think Dave has it right as usual.

It does for me (happen) in just the scenario you describe. Have been meaning to ask about this, but it's infrequent in my usage and with ForceQuit, not really a problem. But since it's been...

To amplify Dave's answer a little, SD, unlike Time Machine and some other methods of backing up, does not do ANY incremental backing up. That is, every time it creates a new backup,...

Regarding 2.5 and 10.5.8, I have done that since 10.5.8 came out, and there are no problems peculiar to that combo. Works in normal SD fashion.
