Minor correction (escape the spaces!)
Authored by: chris_on_hints on May 23, '08 10:46:57AM

put any names in quotes:

'/Volumes/Name of a drive with a space in it/my files/etc'


use a backslash in front of the space:
/Volumes/JackBook\ Pro/

either should work.

Spaces in terminal commands are a bit of a pain, be careful!

Thank you!

I got my backup back up and running, thanks to your advice (and the original hint too, of course).

I appreciate the help! YAY!
