Question Cannot find source volume - new partition

IMy nightly SuperDuper!backup gave me this error
| 04:09:53 PM | Error | The automatic copy aborted because SuperDuper! could not locate the Source volume named Avenir 2.
Prior to this, I consolidated the 3 other partitions (HFS+) into 1 from my main data drive, "Avenir 2". For some reason, Disk Utility wouldn't let me remove the last empty partition. I used ASR in Disk Utility to block copy all the data to the unremovable partition and then deleted the remaining partition. In case you're concerned, yes, I had 2 other copies of the deleted data.

Now, when SuperDuper! runs it can't find the source volume even though it has the same name as before, Avenir 2. What is the best way to fix this? I imagine the UUID must be different now and SuperDuper! doesn't like that.

Thank you,


I just found this which appears to be the answer:
