Sandbox/Disk Utility

I just upgraded to Tiger on Sandbox only. When attempting to verify permissions on Sandbox I continually get an error message:

Disk Utility Internal Error
Disk Utility has lost its connection with the Disk Management Tool and cannot continue. Please quit and relaunch Disk Utility.

I get the same message regardless of launching Disk Utility from Sandbox or Macintosh HD which are different versions.

There is no problem verifying/repairing Macintosh HD or Backup.
Could this possibly be something related to the Sandbox/ file sharing method?

You definitely shouldn't be launching the one from Macintosh HD -- you should run the one from Applications/Utilities. What's weird, Bill, is that Applications/Utilities is *not* shared. The whole thing is copied, and thus would be updated by the installer directly.

I've upgraded to Tiger (literally) hundreds of times on a Sandbox, and haven't seen this before.

When you boot to Macintosh HD, does Disk Utility work properly? And, did you use Software Update to update your 10.4 (on the Sandbox) to the latest release?

I booted from Macintosh HD and got the same result. I didn't use Software Update to upgrade to 10.4.2. I haven't used Software Upgrade since I started using SuperDuper several months ago.

Same result as in the same error? I don't understand how that could be!

Have you done anything unusual here that you're not mentioning? If you were booted from the sandbox, I can't see how the system files on the original drive could have been changed!

What I meant was that when booted from Macintosh HD I got the same error message when attempting to verify Sandbox permissions. Macintosh HD permissions verify/repair are normal. I didn't do anything unusual. Just upgraded from new CD and downloaded & installed 10.4.2 combo update. Updated some application programs also similarly. Everything else seems normal.

Searching around a bit with Google shows that this is a pretty common error when Disk Utility has a problem -- I don't think it has anything to do with SuperDuper! at all. Try running the following at a Terminal command prompt:

sudo diskutil repairPermissions /

When you do that, what output do you get?
