When I select the folders that I want to backup on one USB HD (source) their total size is say 226 GB. When I try to back them up on another USB HD (destination), Acronis shows that the backup is 266.79 GB and stalls with less than 1 minute left.
What is happening that:
a) causes the resultant backup to be bigger than the selected files,
b) it stalls at that point?
I successfully backed up the files from the "destination" HD to the "source" HD previously. I "cross backup" those two USB HDs but do not select the backup files to be backed up.
