My apologies, bad terminology. I updated the backup settings document, not the copy script (those two always confuse me - but I also can't come up with anything better). I did not touch the schedule,...

SuperDuper not mounting disk images; copying to root volume

This is going to sound truly strange, but yes, it did happen - twice.

My backups are done to disk images stored on a Time Capsule. When SuperDuper opens the backup script, it mounts the Time...

I have some disks that have a nearly empty progress bar the whole way through, and others that jump to nearly full immediately and stick there until done. I just figure it has to with either large...

All good info, and I appreciate the time to educate. Bringing up the UNIX metaphor was a good one, as definitely crystalizes the "many specific parts" approach. I suppose I just wasn't in that...

It's also deprecated and could be removed entirely any time. Launchd is much more flexible, and in my opinion (but just an opinion) more readable and readily accessible than cron. Cron's advantage is...

SuperDuper Scheduling/cron failures

First off, a scheduled copy that I previously deleted is still attempting to run. Nightly, I get messages in my UNIX mailbox (nothing I ever would have noticed, except for a stray line in the...

Yes, you can absolutely do that - I have several backup schedules set up on my computer, and like yours, two are for different sections of the same drive.

Oddly enough, I think this is the way it used to work. The "-1" is used when Mac OS X tries to mount a volume and finds that the volume name is already used by something else. You can do the same...

Definitely not going to do that over a software glitch - that would require deleting a terabyte of data (which would be *painful* to back up again), losing my Time Machine backup history, and/or...

Well, no, Time Machine don't change the image itself, but it mounts the Time Machine disk (where the SD image file is located) in such a way that Mac OS X has exclusive access to it.

So:

Figured it out - if Time Machine is backing up to the same volume, then it locks down the permissions on the mount point - can't even "ls /Volumes/Delorean" (yes, I named the drive Delorean). This...

Problems scheduling multiple backups

My SuperDuper backups are on disk images on a network volume (Time Capsule). I schedule three backups for 4AM - my boot drive, one set of files from my data drive, and a second set of files from my...
