TOPIC: No Directory Backup of my iMac's Fusion boot drive

No Directory Backup of my iMac's Fusion boot drive 17 Jun 2016 17:35 #7282

My iMac's Fusion boot drive (named "Hobbes") appears in the TechTool Protection "Volume Usage" tab.

When I switch to the Directory Backup tab, it has the same list of drives, but the boot drive is shown as "Hobbes (SSD)" unchecked and in light gray text (i.e., disabled). Since this entry is disabled, I can't turn on directory backup.

The TechTool Protection folder containing the directory backup data has a subfolder for each of my hard drives. Each folder contains 3 recent time-stamped TextEdit documents, with the exception of the "Hobbes" folder, which is empty. That empty folder has a modification date of 23 May 16, 1:48 PM.

My FileMaker database where I keep a log of all changes to my Macs shows ...

1. TechTool Pro 8 updated itself from 8.0.3 to 8.0.4 on 23 May 16 at about 1:25 PM.
2. TechTool Pro 8 then updated the TechTool Protection PrefPane to 8.0.4.

The Directory Backup and Trash Recovery features have been disabled for SSD drives in TechTool Pro 8.0.4. Please see TTP 8.0.4 Protection for Directory Backup and Trash Recovery not working.
