MacTuneUp - "Bootable" Backup Not Bootable
Posted by - NA - on 16 July 2009 11:47 AM
If your "bootable" backup up is not bootable, there are several possibilities for this:

1. The "Make bootable" option wasn't checked when starting the backup process.

2. The backup volume is not in a "Mac OS Extended" or "UFS" format.

3. Not all required system components were copied (important system components were removed from the copy list before making the backup).

4. There is not enough free disk space on the backup volume (after the backup process there should be at least 300 MB of free disk space).

5. Not all source system resources components were are allocated on a songle volume, and therefore did not get copied completely (incomplete backup).

6. The disk permissions on the backup volume are not correct. To repair the disk permissions, go to Maintenance->Maintenance Pilot, check the "Repair Permissions" button, select your backup volume from the list, then start the Maintenance Pilot (disk permissions can also be repaired using the "Disk Utility").

7. The disk permissions of the source system volume are corrupt, and therefore not all components could be copied properly. In this case, try to repair the disk permissions on the source disk and then perform a new backup.
