Server Backup Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried both manually and automatically to backup the server to a WD 3TB USB HD. If I do it manually I get a message showing "Preparing for backup" and after a minute or 2, the Backup Status is "unsuccessful". When I look at details for the "unsuccessful" backup, there is this message: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. Any suggestions as to what this means and how to correct it? Thanks,
