...first time I seriously use the software ever, the very first one being a kind of test to see the GUI.
And I thought I should use it.
Actually I wanted to copy everything from one disk to another, something I had been doing with CCC until recently (Before Mac OS 10.4.4): while 0k for the less populated folders, iBackup becomes a real nightmare with some others.
For instance, 1821 items are within my music folder, and I had to check manually every single one I have there.
Then, well I have experienced numerous Apple Script errors, -2753 (Task not defined? French localisation is not 100% here), and even -1700 (Folder using Greek letters; no problem with Japanese characters though).
Anyway I managed through errors and glitches, and could complete the initial setup, normally a one time procedure if you do not change your folder structure.
At least I thought I would start my backup right after the lengthy settings, and sadly I had to see yet another failure notice after a few minutes, according to which the OS would have some components that had stopped responding(!), which is something iBackup 5.0.2 would have detected, and it would now quit...
The app itself was behind this notice, and the GUI was almost indistinctable, almost completely black.
Now this is a backup program, and I do not feel I can rely on it any time now.
LaCie's SilverKeeper (v. 1.1.4 by the way) can not save many profiles, but had my job done.
