Yes, the 1 backups are fine.

The 2 backups are usable but won't boot. The data is there (use Finder's Go To Folder to open /Volumes, you'll see the data volume there). To use them to get...

Periodic tasks run by launchd need a spec, in their plist, for when they should run. One daemon can either run "forever" and then schedule internally - which would take more resources, and kind of go...

It is neither manic nor frantic - once a minute only 1440 times a day. It's just not much logging, Dan. You should see what the OS is doing!

That's totally normal. It's a few lines, once a minute. Not frantic. That's how ASL logging works.

We could already deal with Catalina up until 10.15.5, Jim. They broke 3rd party firmlink creation in that version, so now we need to use alternate methods to create the initial copy.

Again, I don't know what "frantic activity" in this case means, Dan. I'd really need to see the logging...but I can say for sure it had nothing to do with the drive being 'busy'.

sdbackupbytime is doing nothing after a backup that's different than what it does normally. If you're seeing differently, I'd need to see the logging.

sdbackupbytime does not do disk activity, so I don't think that was it. The activity was either Spotlight or an antivirus program.

If you have sample logging from that, though, send it in to the...

Yeah, I should rephrase my response as "it's unnecessary, since we already do that". :)

That doesn't make sense. We don't copy the system volume if it's not changed (we don't even evaluate it), so there's no need to skip it: you're effectively doing what you're suggesting already.

While you can use images if you must, you can't use read-only images for APFS. In general, as I've said in detail elsewhere, I would discourage the use of images, and as of 10.15.5, it won't be...

Catalina copies MUST be made to APFS volumes. There is no choice: HFS+ does not support volume groups.
