4. Next, here's the log of my latest attempt to execute the above mentioned script (so far - I've actually still got SuperDuper running as I type this, and as you can see I've been patient and let it run for a LONG time!)

Can't promise I'll leave this up running until receiving a reply, but for now it's still running just in case anything more actually happens.

Finally, here's what it's apparently copied to my backup drive so far:

Applications (which does indeed apparently contain actual copies of my applications within it!!! - amazing as I didn't intend to ask for it!!!)

Automount

Desktop

Network

Users

---- and all of these last four folders are empty except for Automount which contains two additional empty subfolders called servers and automount.


I've also noticed that no matter how I configure the script, SuperDuper always says it's going through and evaluating over 422,000 files (which I guess is the total of all the files on my whole hard drive) - regardless of any ignore statements or what I've asked to have copied. It does go through the evaluation more quickly or slowly depending on just what I've asked for, however. But in any case, it usually gets to a point, after running for maybe 10 minutes and having "evaluated" somewhere around 175,000 or so files, where it LOOKS like it just "hangs." At that point I've usually just given up and stopped SuperDuper - but this latest time I just left it running and was amazed to find something actually happened five and a half hours later as can be seen from my above log.

(And woah - I see things are still happening, because I just went back to the log and found the new latest line - " | 05:04:26 PM | Info | Attempting to copy file using ditto." in there, which I've also now pasted into the above copy of the log for you but which wasn't there when I started typing this post.

So - what's going on? How do I need to tweak my scripts, and what else if anything do I need to do to accomplish all SuperDuper is capable of doing for me? I'm willing to invest in additional external space if necessary but I sure don't want to have to swap out and upgrade my Mac internal hard drive!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
