Subject: Backups stops & hangs system

By: Ben Mittman

26/10-2004 03:07

I am running Windows 2000.
I've used Zip Backup successfully for over a year. But, yesterday, after a couple of successful backups to a CD-RW, the system stopped on the third folder backup, and totally hung Windows, long before the backup was completed -- I had to stop & restart my PC.

A perfectly good looking Zip Backup icon is on my CD-RW, but it is corrupted and would not respond to a test Restore attempt.

I tried two other attempts today with different media and different folders and had the same problems.

Below are the relavent log files. Any ideas?? I hope so.
