SilverKeeper - A great way to crash your system
Authored by: garroth on May 23, '04 04:24:32AM

I know this isn't exactly what SilverKeeper is intended for, but from it's description and help pages it should work fine. I'm trying to unify two 10.2 installs, from my iMac, and iBook. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone from one to a firewire hard-drive, then use silver keeper to add the apps and all items from my home directory to the cloned Applications and Home on my firewire drive, checking the never delete target option, which should add those from the source without removing those from the target. All it ever does is crash my system though. Grey screen, Power symbol, and message saying you must hard reboot in about three languages. Not good. I know several other people who use commercial apps to do exactly this, backup changes to several systems to one identical backup, so all machines have identical installs if restored from backup. If Silverkeeper would accomplish this, I'd gladly pay, but for all the trouble it's caused me, free is too much
