OK. Again, I need to see the message in the log...

Harry Cover 12-14-2005 03:26 PM

Here it is:

OK. Please remove the file that's there already, and run the copy *from* the destination to this folder again. Something's gone weird with the file that's there, and the system thinks it's a folder (or it really is a folder).

Harry Cover 12-14-2005 04:37 PM

Oops !!
The system thinks right: it was a folder.
I copied the icon onto it.

So, I replaced the folder with a file, and launched the copy.
The error message and the red colour of the 3rd step has diasappeared.
The icon keepes changing.

Does the icon file have to be a special file, or any file is OK ?

dnanian 12-14-2005 04:41 PM

OK... and you're certain the icon file is correct?

dnanian 12-14-2005 04:47 PM

It has to be a real icon file. The best thing to do is to "harvest" it from the volume after you set it, as I described in a previous response, above...

I must be a very bad "harvester".
I have been searching a lot, but could not find the message you mentionned. I still do not know how to "harvest" efficiently.
Could you give me the address of this message, please.

I think that your patient is now almost cured, Dave.
Sorry to bother you with this tiny problem.

Yours.
A french harvester.

I have found that the HD icon is in the ".VolumeIcon.icns" invisible file at the root of the backup HD.
Couldn't we use it instead ?

In case you need it, the end of the log:

Weird ! :eek:

The folder that you told me to create:
"/Volumes/iMac G5/Users/parents/Volume Icons"

is now empty...

Is SD going to erase my whole HD, little by little ??!! :confused: :p :p

dnanian 12-15-2005 09:37 AM

That *is* what you're trying to use, Harry. But you need to copy it and rename it to the name I suggested. If the folder is empty, it's because ".VolumeIcon.icns" is invisible (that's what the leading dot is)...

Harry Cover 12-15-2005 11:23 AM

OK, Dave.

So, I went to see inside the Folder with File Buddy:
"/Volumes/iMac G5/Users/parents/Volume Icons"

The icon file was there and invisible (see its name):
"/Volumes/iMac G5/Users/parents/Volume Icons/Backup.VolumeIcon.icns"

but :
- the name was the same, as the one you previously told me to set
- no dot at the beginning
- the custom icon still was there
- the file was invisible to the Finder, but not set as invisible in File Buddy

Anyway,
- I copied it
- replaced the invisible file, by the copied one, as you said
- launched the SD backup
- I tore again my remaining hairs, watching the icon lost :(
- and sent the log to you.

Please Dave lets find a solution before my nervous breakdown. ;)

Harry Cover 12-15-2005 11:38 AM

I have restarded the mac, and repaired the permissions.

The backup disk has now lost the icon it previously got, from the master disk.
It has now a generic HD icon. :eek:

dnanian 12-15-2005 11:41 AM

It sounds like it can't find the icon, or something, Harry. I'm just not sure what to suggest at this point...
