    Anybody have any experience with RsyncX?

    Installed fine, seems to have run fine when I made a bootable archive from a Bootable source. Just so you know, both sources are the exact same Lacie 80 gig drive.

    Anyhow, when I try and boot from the backup I get the message "Waiting for Network file system" and it just hangs there, won't finish booting.

    I am running RsycX v2.1, OSX 10.3.5, LaCie 80gig Firewire drive on a PM DP1.25

    I attached an image of the RsyncX Screen as it was set to create the archive

    Any advice would be appreciated

    I'm with Coolvirus007. I use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) myself (available here), and it's never failed to make a clone that would boot my system.

    Thanks to both of you.

    CCC works like a charm, easily worth $5
