I just started getting this error on one of my backups. In the past an erase and copy fixed it. I'm getting the same error when running a disk verify on the source and I have not restored from a...

Disk verify error on rotating SD backup

I use SD in a backup scheme where we do nightly smart updates, and then rotate those offsite every week in a rotation with 3 drives (one on-site, one off-site, one in transit). I have a post backup...
