Intermittent Time Machine Backup Problem

    Here's the deal….

    I have three SuperDuper! backups scheduled to run in the night at 2:15,
    3:15, and 4:15, the first two to hard drives, and the last one to my
    Time Capsule. I schedule my Time Machine backups using
    TimeMachineEditor to run on the hour except for 2:00, 3:00, 4:00, and
    5:00 AM. This morning around 9:30 AM I noted that there was a Time
    Machine backup failure at 5:00 AM and that no Time Machine backups had
    been made since then. The last SuperDuper! backup, the one to the Time
    Capsule, had completed at 4:27 AM. So the question is why would the
    5:00 AM backup have failed?

    Any thoughts or answers will be most appreciated!

    Thanks for the reply!

    The signature is managed by Unison, all I enter is the text which in my
    case starts with "James". I haven't yet checked the system log to see
    why the Time Machine backup failed. When I do I will report back.

    Try inserting a CRLF after the space and before "James".
