OneCare Backup hangs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Backup configured to backup to an external hard drive.  Recently it just runs and runs and runs and runs and never really seems to to anything except display an icon in the system tray.  When I click on that icon it gives the the choices "Start Backup" (in bold) and "Cancel Backup" (in lighter type).  Clicking either of those choices has no effect.  The drive doesn't show any disk activity while this is going on.

    The drive is attached to this "hub" computer in a OneCare circle.  The other computer, attached via wifi, backs up just fine on schedule, so I know the drive is fine.  Shutting down the computer and restarting has no effect --- the problem returns on restart.
