It will go through its motions, but in the end, it will say that it failed to back up. It has done it successfully in the past, but lately it has failed to complete a full back up. My 300GB Seagate drive still has plenty of space on it since I’ve dedicated it to do only that function. I have another 1TB Western Digital Book drive connected to my Mac Mini to perform the many other miscellaneous storage functions, but the Seagate is only for back ups.


If anyone can give me some advice on how to get my Seagate to do the necessary back ups, I’d sure appreciate it.


Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
