I was using Disk Utilities from the program CDs.
Nevertheless, I looked through the Pondini links you sent and noticed that Permissions might be causing the problems. So I ran "Repair Disk Permissions". It took more than an hour to scan and repair. I then ran "Repair Disk" on the G-Drive just for good measure. It also found problems which it fixed. I then chose "Backup Now" and it took some time but was successful. I notice that the PB boots up faster now and I am hoping the application freezes and quits (since the hard drive repair) will also disappear.
Thank you very much for your advice.
