Hi all,
Have tried twice to do a time machine backup, it's approx 344gig and going
to a 1 TB Lacie drive, which is just for this purpose.
I get to exactly 321.39gig and nothing more happens. ( both times )
No warning text or anything, just a spinning time machine display as if it's
continuing it's job.
Left it alone for a further 2 hrs and no change.

Has it found an area of the drive that it doesn't like or a damaged file ?
If so, why no "error" message ?

Help !

Mac Pro 8 x 2.8Ghz/8 gig Ram/1.5 Terabyte HD and Macbook Pro 2.4Ghz dual Intel/4 gig Ram/7200rpm 500gig HD - Had most Mac's since Quadra 700!
QUOTE Thanks
