It has developed a mind of its own. I deleted the prior schedule and reset it now using 3x/week backup. Copied successfully per the banner on the home screen when I awakened it this morning. I'll keep an eye out and if it skips again I'll try your last suggestion. Fingers crossed.

Addendum: Two for two as of this morning with scheduled backups this week. Who knows, who cares, as long as it works.

Itís been a week and knock on wood, SD has nailed every scheduled backup over that time. Donít know what it was but the fact that itís working is good enough for me.

Your Mac likely didn't stay awake...or didn't wake.

I thought I'd add this to an old query. I have a couple of daily scheduled backups. It seems they've been failing to run for a couple of days. Turns out that happened when I upgraded from Monterey to Sonoma. I don't think my cron file was erased, as I have other stuff in there that continued to work. I should have looked at it. But I just erased the SuperDuper schedules, reestablished them, and now scheduled backups again work perfectly. Is there something about OS upgrade that messes with SuperDuper cron schedules?

There shouldn't be; I haven't seen cron entries go away during an OS update. Perhaps the agent wasn't running for some reason?

(Remember - the cron entries are there for "backward compatibility" - they indicate when the backups run, but aren't actually running them: the actual backup is run by our LaunchAgents.)

Well, it is a little funny that my scheduled backups were working for a year, and then quite suddenly, when I upgraded the OS, they stopped happening. Under scheduled copies, SuperDuper accurately admitted that they hadn't been happening, though the backups were still formally scheduled. I take it this isn't happening to anyone else? I should say that I hadn't even manually launched SuperDuper for a few months, so it isn't as if I changed something in the app. Oh well.

I'm not saying it's not "odd", just that it's not "typical". Since you "fixed" it, though, it's impossible to diagnose after the fact.

Next time, if it happens, send me support email and we'll work through it and try to figure out what it is.
