Richard, welcome to these public User Forums.

Sorry but I do not understand what actual issue you are telling us about here?

What exactly are you wanting to do and how are you wanting to do it?

What version of Windows OS are you using?

Where are you connecting your external drive, is this just to one computer or are you swapping the drive between two different computers?

Richard, please download the MVP Log Viewer tool (link in my signature below) and use this to review the log file for your backup operation. This should provide more information on why you are seeing any error messages?
