Brian30 had trouble on 18 Oct 2010
I don't know if anyone else has had this issue or not but here it is. I am running MacOS 10.5.8 on a MacBook (Non Pro). My MacBook's hard drive is 160 gigabytes. I downloaded the program. I opened it and did everything right for setting up my backup I wanted to do. Backing up my entire computer's hard drive. I had set it so that it would make my external USB 2.0 hard drive (1 terabyte in size) bootable. After copying my hard drive to the Source File list, I clicked on "Backup". After about 6 1/2 hours later, the backup finished. Not sure why it took that long but that's another problem. After my backup was complete, I ejected my external hard drive and restarted my computer. My external drive mounted but was NOT visible on the desktop. It was nowhere to be found. The only way I knew it mounted was by opening Disk Utility. I could see the drive in there but NOT on my desktop. After looking around online, I found a program that makes invisible files, visible. I was then able to see my external drive along with everything else that was invisible. I then launched that program a second time and my external drive became invisible again. I then decided to re-format my external drive. After doing so, my external drive became visible, permanently. Does anyone have any clue as to what would cause this?? Please help!!
