IBM T30 unable to perform backup

When trying to create backup disks from a used IBM T30 2266 I am unable to. Then I tried using the backup utility to my backup external drive. Which has more then enough room. 500gig's. while starting the utility it comes up with the error destination file path not valid, or I/O problem. I have no clue what this I/O is. Also I do not have a set of backup disks. And I have spent hours trying to locate them on the web and also on IBM'S site. It just keeps bringing you around in circles.

After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.

NO answer to posted problem so ill try here.


Since this is apparently a hard drive issue, the very first thing to do is to back up all of your data files to a cd, or other media. Anything that you will need to put on a new hard drive.
The easiest way to do this is to create a new folder and name it something like "my backup files". Then go through all of you files and put a copy of anything you want to save in the new folder. After doing all of this housekeeping, just transfer this new folder to your backup media.
The next thing to do is to dig out those recovery disks that may have come with your system (Hopefully!). If not, do some exploring of your system resources to see if you can create a set of recovery disks. Some setups will let you do this.
The good news is that your current hard drive may still run for a long time, even with the clicking sound. The additional good news is that it dies on you, you will have saved all of the necessary files to rebuild a new hard drive, if, or when needed.

To set up a new drive, you will need to reinstall the window os and then your data files can be copied to the new drive.
