I can't do a backup



  • Hi,

    I am trying to do a backup and the page won't serve and the router plays a tune of (I think) 5 tones. I go to Diagnostics/Backup and Restore and all I get is the little tune ...

    I think I'd like to do a backup please !

    I can't see any unusual messages on any of the normally-accessed-by-me pages.

    2.4.4-RELEASE (amd64)
    built on Thu Sep 20 09:03:12 EDT 2018
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p3

    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz
    Current: 2400 MHz, Max: 2601 MHz
    4 CPUs: 1 package(s) x 2 core(s) x 2 hardware threads
    AES-NI CPU Crypto: Yes (inactive)

    Thanks.
    Steve



  • @swmcl_pf -- I powered off by momentarily pressing the power button and then re-powered. The system says it is doing a backup or re-install in the background. This is the same as before. The process finished and I confirmed the message as read.

    I then did a backup.

    I'm not entirely convinced that it was doing anything in the background at the time of my post but I am happy that the backup has been completed.

    Case closed ?
