View Full Version : Backup Problems Under Tiger

25th September 2005, 10:44 AM
Howdy all,

I've very sucessfully used SuperDuper under panther to backup my mac - however I've recently done a clean install of tiger and used the migration assistant to set it up again (worked brilliantly too).

After a few weeks of using Tiger with no problems I decided it was time to backup the new install.

My problem is that SuperDuper isn't working anymore. Something about permissions (which I don't really understand too well). Here is the log from the console:

[***] Sunday, September 25, 2005 10:20:24 AM Australia/Sydney

I'm running the latest version of SuperDuper.

Also tried the 'get info' command and unchecked ignore permissions on the external firewire disk.

So I'm stuck for what to do now. Can anyone help?

Thanks muchly!

Put in your OSX CD and boot from it then select disktools from one of the buttons on the toolbar. Once disktools is launched then run the permissions repair. This is a pretty standerd problem when the computer dosen't dump all the data from the kernal properly before shutdown...Crash,powerfailour,etc. Or it could be something else.
