Re: Failed Backup during Process

For Heaven's Sake what is the "Zip Click of Death?"
Claire

It's self explanatory, and any search engine should send you to some flame board on the subject. As I recall, the early portable Zip 100 drives in particular had a flimsy plastic head stop that could break either in use or in transport. This resulted in a click-click-click as the head banged during the seek process and ruined the data disks. The natural reaction is to insert the backup to the backup and ruin it too. Don't do that.FYI the permanent drives installed in desktop computers may not exhibit this symptom very often, and perhaps the newest drives have been modified.
