Does red x mean my backup is no good?
I'm annoyed at the red X showing up all the time. Of course, one thing I really want to know is DO I have a reliable backup; but I also don't want this continuing to happen.
I have a Windows 7 home 64 bit computer with about 8 or so external usb II and III drives. I have audio programs which use enormous amounts of data, which needs to be on external drives, such as Fxpansion's BFD3. I only need to backup the System Drive, and can't use cloud storage due to security.
The RED X is recurrent. At least one of the drives and/or the usb bays have chronic issues where they turn off during start up, or do not turn on, and I need to "time" the pressing of one of the drive's start buttons, which avoids the issue. But I haven't been successful everytime, and since the drive letters I want are already assigned, I can see no other method for making them static. Windows 7 doesn't indicate that there are some "static drives" and some "non static drives"; but even if one is "non-static" Windows 7 won't let me assign the same letter.
Under MY BACKUPS my latest backup exists on Drive M, and the file is there. But it was only supposed to backup Drive C. Somehow it backed up an external drive. I assume this is the root of the RED X, since it is possible that it recognizes that the data presently on Drive Q is not the same as it was when the backup was performed a few days ago.
But to be clear, the drives exist, both sources and destination. Regarding verification and then reverting (if needed) to this backup, should I ignore the RED X?
It makes no sense why Acronis can't find it. I shut it down and restarted it 3 times and it still shows the....EVIL.....RED....X
The message "Check whether source and destination..." exists is possibly irrelevant as to whether the backup is useable for restore operations; source/destination do exist (but possible drive Q is now a different drive Q - but I don't really care about the data on Drive Q - its the system drive I care about) and the backup is where its supposed to be, and completed okay when I ran it.
When I click on "check for a solution" I go to an infamous Axronis page where there is no recommended solution.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
