  • External USB drive question/help?


    I am trying to backup my files onto a WD USB hard drive. I am using Vortexbox 1.5 and Fedora 11. Things were going well until I hit the stop backup button. When I hit the start/backup button to resume I received the following message:




    12/06/2010 12:19:57 - USB disk added [Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes]

    I was through the letter L (and about 3 days on 1 tb of files) when this message appeared. I have tried rebooting both VBA and drive for 30+ minutes, hitting the start/stop buttons, etc. Can anyone advise? Won't formatting erase all the saved files to date? Thanks in advance for your advice.
