    Hi!

    On my iMac with OSX 10.10.5 I've 1 Raid 5 drive (ThunderBay, using SoftRAID) via Thunderbolt and 2 USB drives. I do use CCC to clone my Raid 5 to both USB's.

    When I drag a folder from my ThunderBay to Finders sidebar and I click it, it points correctly to the folder on the ThunderBay. After some time (or after restart) it will point to the backup folder from the USB drive.

    Has anybody got this error too and maybe a solution?

    No responses!!? No, I haven't gotten this error. What have you tried?

    Maybe delete com.apple.sidebarlists.plist found in your UserName folder /Library/Preferences. The computer will build a new one, possibly only after a Restart. It can't hurt anything to try it.

    Thanks, this helped!

    Edit: I deleted com.apple.finder.plist - that helped.
