  • Question

  •  

    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me,

    I am trying to do my first backup of my toshiba laptop to my home server and everytime it attempts to it fails and when I check it says that an error occurred reading or writing  to the computers hard drive.

    Does anyone know what it might be?

     

    Thanks

  • Hi Shaun,

    Welcome to the forums. How is your Client connected to the server, if by wireless, the long initial backup can well fail because of wireless dropouts. A wired connection connection is the preferred method initially.

    Also, try running chkdisk on the Client to see if there might be a disk problem. Another idea, how much free space is there on the Client drive, if there isn't much slack space, the backup can have problems finding enough space.

     

    HTH,
