    Has anyone had a problem that when you start a copy, either to refresh, or make a new snapshot, that it seems to lock up while indexing the folders? I've tried it on both of my snapshots, and one locked up, and the other one just kept going and going till it said it ran of space. I've never had any problems before working with FDISR, and these snapshots have been updated and copied many times without any problems.

    Thanks in advance.

    No ideas either. This seems to be a serious problem. Has your harddisk still enough free space ?

    Ok I REALLY fell like an idiot now!

    I just realized that I had moved a copy of all the recovered files from a crashed hard drive on to my computers main drive. It was just sitting in a temporary directory I had made while I was working on it. It held many thousands of recovered bits and pieces of files, and I totally forgot it was there. As soon as I added the temp directory to the anchored files, it started working just fine again.

    There's a moral to this story, but darned if I know what it is!

    Trust me you won't be the first or the last. Glad it is sorted out.
