Question:

Question: What is /private/var/db/fpsd/dvp?

Carbon Copy Cloner gives me an error when I finish backing up, saying I can't copy this file to my backup drive because it didn't have permissions. What is it, and is it safe to use the backup without this file? When I go to the file in Finder, the folder it's in doesn't give me access.

Not an issue. Yes safe to use the backup without the file.


The fpsd daemon is directly linked to iTunes, in the part of Core framework. Not copied for privacy concerns.

Thanks for the clarification.


But I think will be interesting to avoid the false error so it will not be mistaken with a real error. I saw some people granting access to the folder, but does not seems to be the right thing to do, besides the folder is not really necessary for a backup. So I tried to uncheck the folder in the Carbon Copy task settings, but this folder is not listed, just the parent /private/var/db/fpsd/. Can I uncheck all /private/var/db/fpsd/ folder?
