Cloning Time Machine - missing files?

Hi! I'm thrilled to have found SD for cloning my existing TM drive onto my new Drobo; Disk Utility and asr have both failed block-by-block restores (on verification), so I'm giving the Backup - All Files script a try.

As I watch the status, though, I note a curiosity: so far, we have
32,447 files evaluated, 32,337 files copied (2.40 GB evaluated, 2.03 GB copied). After preparation, the only log entries are:
Code:
| 08:40:35 PM | Info |       /Volumes/OS X Backup
| 08:40:38 PM | Info |       /Volumes/OS X Backup/.Spotlight-V100
| 08:40:38 PM | Info |       Preserving /Volumes/OS X Backup/.Spotlight-V100
| 08:40:38 PM | Info |       Ignoring /Volumes/OS X Backup/.00**********
| 08:40:38 PM | Info |       /Volumes/OS X Backup/Backups.backupdb
I understand the ignore file, but why the other missing ones? There's no line for ignoring cache or other temp files. (But maybe it's ignoring without logging?) Are we talking about hard links or some other special files? Seems like a concerning start---I can imagine (accurately or not) that once the million-plus files are evaluated, I may be missing several gigs of TM data.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks, and thanks again for SD!

Everything isn't logged, and files are only listed as ignored when they're actually, well, ignored.

Thanks for the quick response, Dave! Other than diff'ing the directory tree, can you give me any idea (or suggest somewhere else I could check) which files aren't being copied? From the above, I'd imagine that cache/temp files which are ignored based on the built-in exclusion scripts would show up in the log. Now that the clone is nearly complete, there are about 30,000 files which were evaluated but not copied.

Thanks again,
CDJ

The copy script fully describes what is and isn't copied; we also don't copy Spotlight indexes from source to destination (to preserve the destination's index).
