Wonder if you could help me. I cloned my 10.6.8 system onto an
external HD, which was successful. I then upgraded to 10.8.
Now I want to clone the 10.6.8 backup (which is on a big
external disk with a power supply), to a smaller more mobile HD
which I can carry around with me incase I need to quickly go back
to 1.6.8 for any reason.
I did a clone from the already done 10.6.8 HD to a new mobile
HD. It said the backup completed successfully, but when I try go to
the Startup Disk in System Preferences, I get the following error
"Building boot caches on boot helper partition failed."
Do you have any idea what this is? I have tried to do the clone
twice now, both being successful. But still the same error message
pops up when I try start from the small mobile HD.
Any help will be much appreciated.
p.s. Thanks for a such a great Backup/Cloning Tool. I have been
using it religiously for the last 6 years. It has saved me many

I think that's a bug in the Startup Disk Preference pane, there
shouldn't be a helper partition for a 10.6.8 partition. If you boot
your Mac holding down the Option key, can you select the 10.6.8
partition and boot from it?

Thanks for the reply. It is a Mountain Lion issue.
I booted up into my one 10.6.8 cone. And then was able to cone that to to mobile HD.
Guess its still early days for Mountain Lion.
