Carbon Copy Clone error for Spam Sieve

On an early Intel Imac running OS 10.8.

Carbon Copy gave an error that it couldn’t back up because a file with the same name but of a different type already exists. I frankly do not know what this means, but the log indicates that the problem is a SpamSieve file(s). The entire log is too long for one post, but this gives the idea:

It sounds as though your backup drive is damaged. I suggest trying to repair it with Disk Utility. Then you could either erase it entirely and start over, or else delete SpamSieve from the backup so that it can be freshly copied.
