Unhelpful error message - truncated

Recommended Posts

Good error messages save a lot of grief.


I just created a copy script, and Retro 10.5 is complaining about what I did, but the error message is unhelpful because the part that tells me what's wrong is truncated.

Amongst other glaringly less-than-helpful error messages must surely be:

    !Device trouble: "10-XYZ Backup Set A", error -206 ( drive reported a failure: dirty heads, bad media, etc.)
    Additional error information for device "Sony DVD RW" [0:0],
  Sense >
  (쎠爆翿     |쎠爆翿             |쎠爆翿 )
[My emphasis]


It's been like that for as long as I can remember.
