I did my first backup today after running Spybot, McAfee Virus Scan, and Defrag. I did get my usual two or three files that defrag said could not be defragmented. During the backup, I had three "Fail to read from the Disk" in sectors 14,339,948, 14,343,876, and 14,346,764. I did a retry, but is still failed. I then said "Ignore" to each of the three. When the backup completed, I got an Information message saying "The operation was successfully completed". However, todays date on the calender is red, indicating a failure. I wanted to run a Verify where the c drive is compared to the backup HD, but could not find how to do it. Do you think this first backup is any good? Where should I go from here? I wa thinking of running a disk scan of my c drive to see if it is anything that could be corrected. I have a feeling my past defrag messages are pointing to a bad spot on my drive, and the backup is failing for the same reason. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Also, please tell me how to do the verify after the backup.
