tried what I thought was a simple backup of one of the partitions on my hard drive (around 80 gig of data). Machine is an older XP Pro box, no connected to a 1 TB My Book Essential via USB. Other than some simple file copies onto this drive, this is the first time I’ve tried to use it for the reason that I purchased it.
It started the backup (registered and sorted the partition) and appeared to be transferring data, and then I came back in three hours and the computer appears to have frozen affer 2 hours (based on the clock on the task bar). Really need to sort this out.
What should I be looking for. All Power Settings (with the exception of my monitor) are set to never shut off.
