Hi all

Sorry if this has been covered a million times elsewhere, but none of the threads I've read quite covers my issue. I'm running Time Machine backups (direct to external hard drive via firewire) with Snow Leopard 10.6.4. It's been running fine for the last few months, but has now started to hang frequently. I've verified internal and repaired external drives (all fine).

I would normally assume my LaCie external drive is on its way out (only a couple of years old :-( ), but it seems to backup whenever I run Time Machine manually, which is the weird bit. It only hangs when running an automatic backup.

Any help anyone? Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks in advance
QUOTE Thanks
