AUTOMATIC BACKUP TO EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE (FIRELITE)

Hello

I have had a Firelite back up external hard drive for about a year now, and everything has worked fine. Weekly it reminded me to back up my files, and then proceeded to do so autimatically when prompted.

Suddenly, it has stopped doing this, although it appears to go through the motions, on checking the contents of the hard drive, I found that the last time it backed anything up was in August this year.

Could you please tell me what might have happened, and what I can do to put it right.

Many thanks.

Caroline

The first thing that comes to mind is the Firelite has become full and can not accept any more backup data.
Delete the data on the Firelite and try running your backup again. If it works then that was the problem.
The backup software should have a configuration setting somewhere that allows it to automatically delete older data and keep it from filling up.

I just installed verbatim 250 gb hard portable hard drive How do I get the files I want backed up to save to the drive. No Instructions


there should be a disk that has backup software on it that came with the HD.

SMARTDISK FIRELITE 120 GIG WONT LET ME BACK IN I HAVE ALL MUSIC ON IT


Try to get the drive detected on a different computer and if it does the same then try to connect to a mac computer it will be detected then make a backup of the data and reformat the drive. it will be fine, this is a very common issue with flashdrives and external hdd.
try and let me know.

second solution is run a scandisk on this drive letter detected by windows then try doing the same step said above.
