I have experienced the same sorts of problems as the OP. So I went and
bought HDC; unfortunately it too gave me some problems, though this was
at least a couple of years back and I cannot now remember the details.
It is enough to say that the backups never completed and bombed out at
some stage. The same happens with _all_ such backup programs. I have
in the past thought it might be some curious problem with the Iyonix'
I have found the only way to back up with no trouble is to back-up to a
totally fresh location using the file-system Copy command. With the
relatively small discs that I have (80 and 125G) in the backup drives,
it is normally quicker to reformat them each time to clear the space.
And by contrast a program runs every night on my Mac doing incremental
backup to an external Lacie drive and never has any problems completing.
