Hello dear sirs,
I just bought a 3TB WD Mybook 1140 Media and I would like to backup my system 10.6.5 with TIme Machine.
Time machine hangs at about 3.8 GB.
Everything on my mac hangs, I can’t close application, I just can push the button and force the machine to shutodown brutally.
I tryed reformatting the drive more and more times.
I tryed repartitioning the drive GUID.
If I copy the whole amount of my system “manually” (drag n drop), I have no problem.
To be honest, I was having the same problem with another Mybook Essential disk.
Backups have been working for a long time on the old drive, but last week I started having problems.
The drive and Time Machine backups on it got corrupted.
So I reformatted the drive and started with a new Time Machine backup.
I was having the same problem that I have NOW with the new drive
(I did an RMA for the old drive since I tryed EVERYTHING and couldn’t got it working, but now I am in the same situation with the brand new one…)
Please help, I can’t believe I can use the WD drive to backup with Time Machine my system…
