Thanks for the speedy reply.

Yesterday I was working on a G4 with an internal drive. I was booted from the system on that internal drive. That's the drive I was trying to backup.

Nothing else connected to the G4, except mouse and monitor.

I was trying to backup to one of two volumes on an external Firewire drive. The external drive was empty.

The backup seemed to proceed normally, until about the middle, where upon the machine locked up. I couldn't force quit, or access any menu. Pulling the power plug seemed to be the only way out.

I've installed another drive on the G4, and am about to try again. This time I installed the OS on the backup drive first, and then manually copied over the files. Hoping to do an incremental backup that won't involve many files.
