    AMI-Back crashes when writing the index file at the end of a backup.

    How can I work to resolve this?

    Here are my settings:

    Backup DH1: and DH2: to an Amigados file on the NAS. I tried writing the index to the S: (default) and RAM:.

    You have to turn turn off flash and beep for notifications or it will crash at the first beep.

    Way to painful to switch. I have used AMI-Back for 30 Plus years and built my entire backup system around it. AMI-Back works real sweet on 68k Amigas, including scheduling and automatically backing up, etc. My backups all work without me doing much and they are bullet proof.

    MOS does catch a guru that I say save. If that helps.

    One other issue I ran into with Diavolo was it wouldn't backup across the network to a NAS (At least the latest 68k version).

    Too bad AMI-Back wasn't bought out and maintained to modernize the interface and fix this issue, it was developed over many years and really is a perfect solution for backing up.

    Funny thing is I seem to remember using AMI-Back many many years ago with my Peg II and a very old release of MOS and I think it worked. Not 100% sure on it.

    I actually tested a bunch of backup software many years ago(on the 3k) and here were my findings:
