    Have you tried running chkdsk /r on the hard drive?

  • I discovered that it likes the C:\ drive, which it backsup OK, but the extra HDD it hates - chkdsk /r it got to stage 5 on this (verifying file data) and stalled. Stages 1-4 of chkdsk were OK. So, I have removed the secondary HDD from the backup regime, and it now works fine!  Thanks for the input.
