If you had previous selections, yes. If not, of course, no. (The default is checked, FYI.)

Again, any behavior here is undocumented by Apple. It's hard to know what it might or might not do.

You can, of course, use tmutil from a before/after copy script to do things with Time Machine....

If you booted from another drive, it's possible Time Machine reset its own drive selections. TM is a bit of a black box, as you know... but it wouldn't do it because you made a copy.

Yep, it should work. That's what the Preboot volume is for (well, one of the things). The whole thing is much better managed with APFS...now if they can only improve the performance, etc...

You need to erase the destination from the hardware - the very top of the drive - so it creates a new APFS superblock and container.

You may want to consider Mediafour's PC/Mac drive... it can open HFS+ and -- as I recall -- can also handle APFS volumes.

Sorry, Timmy. You cannot write directly to anything other than an APFS of HFS+ volume. Why not just use an encrypted disk image, or an encrypted APFS container?

If you've sent a log, I've analyzed it and have replied - as I recall, it's a write error to a destination drive that's having problems.

Hey, David. Could you send a message to support so we can work through this? We may have a version that will fix it.

Smart Update is only interacting with the volume. Not other volumes. It is better than hard partitions - I discuss that in the blog, too.

The space in the container is shared, so the size can grow and shrink as needed. You can, of course, set a quota or minimum.

It only changes the partition you've selected. The other partition is not affected. What it previously named something else?

Yes (see http://www.shirt-pocket.com/blog), but recognize that APFS is about 20% slower than HFS+. Other advantages outweighs the speed issues, and no doubt Apple will improve that over time.

It may be that it needs to delete a lot of data, or that the drive is highly fragmented and lots of files are being replaced.

I'd use Disk Utility to erase it. Then, add it to the spotlight...

That seems awfully slow, yes. This is your first copy? It's probably because of the hub/etc. What happens if you connect it directly? Did you do an erase or a smart update?

Those are read errors on the drive. So yes, the drive is probably failing. It's not an APFS gremlin - it's a physical drive failure.

Yes, I know that's going to happen when you make the copy. What I'm saying is you could use a shell script there to set something on the backup that would tell you you're on the copy.
