backup failing

Hi,

Have tried twice to backup with new version 2.0.1. Worked fine on my powerbook, but on ibook it has failed two times. The following is truncated from the log file:

Scripts/Standard Scripts/Backup - all files.dset
| 06:02:44 PM | Info | /
| 06:02:47 PM | Info | /bin
| 06:02:47 PM | Info | /usr
| 06:03:41 PM | Info | WARNING: Caught I/O exception(14): Bad address
| 06:03:41 PM | Info | WARNING: Source: /usr/bin/apply, lstat(): 0
| 06:03:41 PM | Info | WARNING: Target: /Volumes/L/usr/bin/apply, lstat(): 0
| 06:03:41 PM | Info | Attempting to copy file using copyfile().
| 06:04:07 PM | Info | Attempting to copy file using ditto.
| 06:04:33 PM | Error | ditto: /usr/bin/./apply: Input/output error

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Brannon

Sure, Brannon. Did you check out the "Troubleshooting" section of the User's Guide?

The implication here is that the file is bad, but it could be a repairable problem. Please boot from your Tiger DVD and use Disk Utility (accessible in the Installer menu) to repair the drive. Then, give the backup another try... and check out the steps in the Guide, which should help.

I ran disk utility on the source and destination drives-no problems found. Also disabled anti-virus. Still no luck.

Thanks in advance.

OK. Do you have any other devices attached to your FireWire bus, such as an iSight? If so, disconnect everything but the drive and see if that works.

If not, it's quite possible that this file is, indeed, damaged. Since it's a system file, it's a bit harder to repair than others, because you can't just delete it. Do you, perhaps, have another computer you can copy it from?

Nothing else attached to computer other than power cord. I'll try copying the file from another computer. Should I copy the whole bin folder? Do you know if it is a machine-specific file?

Thanks again for all of your assistance.

Don't copy the bin folder! It's critical stuff. Just take the single file listed and replace it...
