Clone Troubles
I am a new user and went ahead and registered the product so I could make a perfect clone of the HD to my firewire disk to prep for Tiger. I keep getting an error:

|11:52:27 PM|Error| SVUclone: FTS_NS error for item: '/Volumes/inetguy' err: 13, Permission denied

That is my .Mac disk. Is there a way I can get around this? It seems to be the only thing tripping SuperDuper! I have unmounted it from the desktop and don't know what else to do to make it disappear for only this process. I also logged out and made sure no start up apps were running.

Thanks for any help

That's strange: all we're doing is stepping through the folder.

Well, the first thing to try -- as silly as it seems -- is rebooting. There might be something weird/wrong with the /Volumes folder, and it's usually recreated on reboot -- so give it a shot.

Actually, I went into Activity Monitor and quit the mount_webdav process and it worked like a charm!

It's rather odd, that it would hang like thate, but I now have a bootable copy of the HD!!

Thanks for the fast reply and the great piece of software!

Well, I'm not sure I'd recommend that to all users, but I'm glad it worked and you were able to retain your uptime! ;)

Last October I had a similar issue with SD! aborting when it accessed an entry in /Volumes for a "stale" .Mac iDisk mount:

|10:34:44 AM|Error| SVUclone: FTS_NS error for item: '/Volumes/dotmacuser' err: 1, Operation not permitted
|10:34:45 AM|Error| 2004-09-29 10:34:44.629 SVUclone[6875] FTS_NS error for item: '/Volumes/dotmacuser' err: 1, Operation not permitted

Not sure if I cleared it by killing the mount_webdav process or rebooting. I never reported it since that was the last and only time it happened; I let my .Mac account expire soon after that.

Yeah: we know about this strange problem.

We try to handle errors like this gracefully, but there are going to be situations where the file system/OS does something that we need to stop for, unfortunately. But, we continue to see if there are better ways to deal...
