10.6: Burning the Preferences folder
Authored by: thvv on Jul 12, '10 08:07:39AM

I have seen similar problems in 10.5. Burning a disc will fail if any file that was present when you started the burn is deleted before the burn tries to write it. Beginning with 10.5, a disc burn would also fail if there was any file that you didn't have access to.. for example I have some files owned by root in ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost .

For backup purposes, it would be more convenient if the "burn disc" dialog had a checkbox that said "do not give up on inaccessible files."
