Blue Screen of Death (Disk Write Error)


Recommended Posts

We are using a Retrospect Express 5.6.132 to back up multiple hard drives on one PC and certain file folders on a Networked Mac. Now so far we've had some success, but recently an error has started to come up daily.




The Blue Screen of Death. In the middle of backing up the 3rd hard drive on the PC, the Blue Screen of Death appears with a Disc Write Error. Retrospect pauses until I get in the morning, then starts backing up after I hit return or escape at the Blue Screen of Death. We are doing a Recycle Backup to a Lacie FireWire 40Gig Pocket Hard drive. I can read the files on the hard drive and it's recognized by the PC, so I don't think the problem is the Hard drive. Retrospect log is also vague:

The Lacie hard drive also seems to full with backups from previous days. I thought a Recycle backup overwrote the data stored.




Do you have any ideas what my be causing the Blue Screen of Death?
