Ami-back issue with source read at 100%

Don't know if anyone uses Ami-Back.

I have an issue that I can't restore my database, restoring to my NAS from my Amiga.

The size of the compressed backup is 365,337,600.

I tried using TLSFMEM and it made no difference.

I lost the .idx file so I just tried a few different ways to restore my data:
1. Tried rebuilding the .idx from the backup file. During the rebuilt it locks once the source read hits 100%, just like when I restore.
2. Tried restoring the entire compressed backup so you don't need the .idx file (the idx file is for selective backups). During the restore it locks once the Source Read hits 100%.

Any help is appreciated it.

@Matt3k

I've used it. But I backed up to floppies. So each had a section. Which can mess up. If you lose the order or what disk you need.

So you are extracting data from the Amiga HDD using AmiBack and copying to your NAS?

So what is the source? Your backup archive?

I'm sure you would be aware but note that if you copy Amiga files to a normal disk you'll lose any protection bits and possibly file comments.

Just one more question for now. What model Amiga, HDD controller and MaxTransfer do you have?

I'm using a compressed file to restore from. I even tried restoring across partitions on same controller.

I'm using a AA3000+ with the onboard SCSI controller and a SD2SCSI card.

I will have to check the max transfers. Looks like it wants me to reinstall the partition when I go into hdtoolbox. I will have to find away around that.

Using PFS3 btw.

Thanks Hypex.

@Matt3k

Wow you have an AA3000+?

If your HDD works fine on SCSI then your max transfer setting should be okay. I find it's hard to find this info on the net sometimes. We need a guide.

So no problems with the SCSI2SD? There was a thread on here about it. A guide here for set up:

Does your HDToolbox know above 4GB? OS3.9, etc.
