It's a Lacie 1 Tb usb harddrive, that came with a backup program. I started a backup using this software.
Backup time: 38 hours
Errors: Yes, but at least I got a list of files that had not been backed up properly.
I have the 450 GB stored in 11 "main folders". I copied one at a time to the external usb harddrive. It went well for the first 10 folders.
For the last folder I'm trying to copy over to the usb drive, i get an error saying "syclic redundancy check failure for _____filename", and then the copying gets aborted. Argh!
Any suggestions from warriors are welcome!
I want to do this backup routine once a month, but I don't have time do spend 2-3 days each time, at least not if I have to babysit the computer to get this done.
How do YOU back up large amounts of data to external drives?
Any help is appreciated!
