Firewire Hardrive Unmounts During Duplicating


Recommended Posts

Using 10.4.4 and Retrospect 6.1 my firewire/usb2 external hard drive unmounts when Retropect begins to duplictate the files when I use the firewire port (I tried both ports). To see the drive again I have to shut off the drive and restart.

 

Thus far using the USB port the duplicate is working fine (only 84 GB to go).

 

Is there a problem with firewire drives and Retropect?

No. It sounds as if you have a problem somewhere on your FireWire bus, either the drive, the computer or the cable.

 

Retrospect doesn't know about or care about the physical connection; if the OS mounts the drive, Retrospect can write to it.
