This forum thread needs a solution.


Have been trying to run a backup. I keep getting a message that another backup is running.  Trouble is, I do not have another backup.  This has never happened.  Any quick fixes?  Last thing I want is a problem with my guard dog.

Hello William Shore,

Perhaps you could answer a few questions so we can help.

  • Is this your first attempt at a backup?
  • You many have automatic backup enabled and if it is running in the background, trying to run a manual backup can produce this message.  Could you check the 'When' tab in Manage Backup Sets?
  • What is your backup destination, external HDD or Secure Online Backup?
