Backing up

The first time I backed up my HD on My Passport Essentials 3.0 1T is worked.  Since then it only partially backs up my HD and I get a message “Windows- Delayed Write Failed  Windows unable to save all the data for the file F:$Mft.  The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer harware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.”

I checked the connectivity and it seems fine. I ran a diagnostic on my HD and seems fine. My software won’t let me run the WD diagnostic on My Passport.  Now, although My Passport shows up on “my computer” I have trouble accessing it.  I am operating under Window XP Professional. Please help.

Hello mate,

How about another computer, if you access the drive in a different computer do you encounter the same issue?
