mount_hfs: stat /private/tmp/SVUmount: No such file or directory

I'm trying to backup a drive and get this error when I try. I've checked the disks with Disk Utility and all is fine.

Log file below.

That's curious. The implication seems to be that you don't have a temporary directory! Could that be the case?

Maybe you should use a sparse image instead -- see this post in the FAQ for the technique to use.

both /tmp and /private/tmp exist

Permissions on /tmp are:

drwxrwxrwx 39 root wheel 1326 4 Oct 15:43 tmp

Permissions on /private/tmp are:

G5:~ myuser$ ls -l /private/tmp/
total 0
drwx------ 3 myuser wheel 102 4 Oct 15:38 501

Interesting. Well, I don't know why mount would refuse/fail to mount the image, but using the sparse image should resolve the problem...

That's what the link in the previous message points to... take a look there and it should be clearer.

Are you writing to an image for a reason? I assumed so, but if it's the only option available, that's because the destination isn't HFS+. There's another FAQ entry that covers that situation, too.
