Train wreck

Gosh Dave,

The title says it all. I think that the cuba bit was just one very small part of what was happening. It looks like my boot drive was dying which was complicating everything as it would...

deselect some directories or files for backup?

Copy speed?

I am using a dual 1.42 GHz MDD with a SIIG PCI/SATA controller. OS is 10.5.4.
