Chapter 6. Using Backup > When a Backup Fails

6.10. When a Backup Fails

Some time, some day, one of your backups will fail. Maybe the planets are out of alignment, maybe your network or AirPort connection dropped out in the middle of the backup process, or maybe there's some funky file that's throwing things off kilter. Whatever the case may be, you'll need to know how to deal with a failed backup.

If a backup fails because of a lost Net connection or a Drive not being connected, you'll see an alert message similar to the ones shown earlier in Figure 6-16 or Figure 6-33, respectively. The alert window shown in Figure 6-16 provides an Open Network Prefs button, which opens the Network preferences panel (System Preferences → FM-MenuDelim> Network) when clicked. If you click on that button and see a row of red dots to the left of the various network connection types, (shown in Figure 6-36), you should double-check your Internet connection by double-clicking on the appropriate connection type (such as Built-In Ethernet or AirPort, etc.).
