This seems to have been a big problem over a year ago, but haven’t found anything about it recently…
I’m trying to create a safepoint from my 2TB MBL to a 2.5" hdd that I placed inside a Nexstar USB enclosure ( see here). I have tried to do the backup with the USB drive connected to my router (Asus RT-N66U) and to a laptop that I have connected via ethernet to the router (all on the same router as the MBL). After a failed attempt while connected to the router, I can view the few files that the safepoint did in fact backup before it failed.
When the USB is connected to the router, it copies a few files and then fails with error: “36102 -Your safepoint could not be created due to a failed request…”
When connected to the laptop, it doesn’t even get that far, but throws the same error.
What can I do? Could it be a problem with my using a recycled 2.5 hdd in usb enclosure? The drive seems to work fine for copying a few large test files over the network while plugged into the router.
I look at the logs, but there are so many, I’m not sure where to pin down the issue.
