Not an Apple Software Restore Problem
Authored by: gerritdewitt on Jan 02, '10 03:35:56PM

What you've described and similar problems usually stem from cloning a volume while you're started up from it, or not properly preparing your master volume before you create your deployable disk image.

So, you can avoid this completely if you start up from another volume and prepare the master volume before you create the disk image with Disk Utility or hdiutil.

Preparing the master image involves removing system caches in /System/Library and /Library, and temporary folders in /var/folders and /tmp.

So, this isn't an asr problem at all. ASR is simply copying the blocks or files of items on a HFS-type volume. Check out the Apple Developer site for more information about asr.
