-36 error on duplicate

Recommended Posts

I am getting a -36 (i/o) error when attempting to duplicate a backup from one 300 GB Maxtor OneTouch Firewire drive to another identical drive. The drives are connected to separate ports on a G4 400 w/ 1GB RAM and OS 10.3.4. Both Retrospect Workgroup and the Maxtor driver are the latest versions.


I turned on byte-by-byte verification on my latest attempt, but the log didn't offer any further enlightenment that I could find. I think the duplication fails on verification, but I've never actually caught it in the act. Just not patient enough to sit there for three hours watching the screen.
