Help! Iphoto backup fail

My Macbook Pro recently shut down, I got a new HD.
I had a backup on an external hd, made with time machine.
Now my problem is that I can't open Iphoto from my backup where I have thousands of pictures.
Is all lost or is there a way to get to them?
Please help me! Many thanks.

How did you create the backup on the external HD?  What version of iPhoto are you using?

  • I just got iPhone 6 and am trying to restore my iPhone 5 backup but it keeps saying backup failed. Please help.

    Im trying to restore my iPhone 5 backup that i made a few minutes ago to my new iPhone 6 - but it keeps saying backup failed.  What do i do - need help Please.

    Here's what I found in this article Update and restore error messages on iPhone and iPod touch about error 14:
    I think you should start with checking the security software settings first.
    Error 13 and 14: These errors are typically resolved by performing one or more of the steps listed below:
    Perform USB isolation troubleshooting, including trying a different USB port directly on the computer. See the advanced steps below for USB troubleshooting.
    Put a USB 2.0 hub between the device and the computer.
    Try a different USB 30-pin dock-connector cable.
    Eliminate third-party security software conflicts.
    There may be third-party software installed that modifies your default packet size in Windows by inserting one or more TcpWindowSize entries into your registry. Your default packet size being set incorrectly can cause this error. Contact the manufacturer of the software that installed the packet-size modification for assistance.
    Connect your computer directly to your Internet source, bypassing any routers, hubs, or switches. You may need to restart your computer and modem to get online.
    Try to restore from another known-good computer and network.

  • My time machine will not back up. It says backup failed each time i try to back up. I tried switching it off but still nothing. It says "already in use" Please help!

    My time machine will not back up. It says backup failed each time i try to back up. I tried switching it off but still nothing. It says "already in use" Please help!

  • Backup fail on Time Machine and My Passport for Mac on Yosemite

    Cannot seem to get Time Machine to do a full backup of my NEW My Passport for Mac.
    I've:
    - Updated firmware on WD external drive (and formatted correctly for Apple)
    - Updated to latest IOS 10.10.3 (Yosemite)
    - Verified and repaired Mac HD via iOS Disk Utility and the WD Drive Utility (no issues found on either)
    Error message continues to be "Time Machine couldn't complete the backup to My Passport for Mac. An error occurred while copying files. The problem may be temporary. If the problem persists, use Disk Utility to repair your backup disk."
    I'm backing up about 250 GB and have done this numerous times on my Passport for Mac. Everything SEEMS to be fine during backup, until after about 2-3 hours, into a 4-hour backup, the error message appears without any error codes.
    Does anyone have any input?  I don't think it is on the WD side.  Anyone know if there an issue with Time Machine and this external drive?  Help!
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hi Linc,
    I hope this helps you.

  • Time Machine initial backup fails OS 10.5 with no reason but 'bus error'

    I ran into an error on the last system update and had to go back to Leopard 10.5 just to see my stuff. I managed to move my home directory into the newly installed system and all my files are intact. Now I'm trying to get a Time Machine backup before I proceed (my initial mistake was not keeping up with them in the first place).
    I had some trouble early on and at one point decided to reformat the external drive (a Fantom Drives GreenDrive, usb, 500Gb). I formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as recommended, no partitions, and then tried my first initial Time Machine backup.
    It predictably spent a long time 'preparing...' and I followed along in the system log. Eventually, the copying began but early on (within the first 45 min) the backup failed with almost no indications in the log as to why. I've pasted the system log below.
    One thought I had was that it was weird that there was an automatic request for backup at 12:36:54. I also included the CrashReport, but I can't make any sense out of it.
    any ideas?

    I should have added that I've been through about half a dozen sites (including sanctioned apple sites) and their recommendations for getting Time Machine to work properly. I did format the drive once (with extended journaled format and GUID partition scheme, but I didn't zero it out. I'm trying that now and I'll try TM again in about 4 hours.
    This morning I tried turning Time Machine's automatic backups off (moved the slider to off in the preferences pane) and manually started a backup (right-clicking the TM icon in the dock and selecting "Backup Now"). It ran further along than before, but stopped again. This time, it gave an error, and I've pasted the log below. I looked but didn't find much helpful on "error 11."

  • Time Machine Backups Failing w/ Error: (-36) SrcErr:YES

    Machine History: 
    2008 iMac
    2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo
    4 GB of 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Version 10.7.5 OSX
    External G-Drive 500 GB HD connected via Firewire.
    Late yesterday my iMac started acting crazy.  On reboot the machine did not come back up and was hung up on the Apple Logo.  The circular progress meter was spinning and the system would not boot into the OS.  At this point I started the system with the command key and R to get to the ulitlity menu.  At this point I initiated a full system restore back to a backup dated June 10th 2013.  The restore ran clean with no errors and the system came back up.  At this point I wiped out my G-Drive so that I could take a full backup of the system.  I partitioned the G-Drive 400 GB for Time Machine and 100 GB to manually backup photos and other files.  I created the partition and manually backup family photos since it seems that at times I've added photos into iPhoto and they don't get added into the backup sets. 
    At this point I noticed that the Spotlight Indexing job was running in the background.  The same time the Time Machine Full backup was running and initated and I'm not sure what happend.  I recieved a generic error stating that the backup could not be completed at this time.  Backups to disk will not run and recieve the same error.  It appears that there are a ton of files on my mac HD that have this Error: (-36) SrcErr:YES error.  I've tried a few things:
    Using Terminal to mv or cp the files locally on the mac HD.  This fails with I/O Errors
    Using Terminal to mv or cp the files to the backup HD connected via FireWire.  That fails with I/O Errors.
    I've confirmed that the files are readable by the application.  iMovie in this case.  I was able to play the video content.  So I belive that the files are in fact ok and good. 
    I've manually ran a full reindexing of spotlight.  I suspected that the indexing was out of sync and that Time Machine was having a hard time with the metadata.
    I've also confirmed that JPG file had this error in the /var/logs/system.log.  I was able to open the JPG with preview and iPhoto with no issues.  But, I can not copy or move the file to any locations on either the HD or the Backup HD. 
    Permissions on the files are rw-r-r.  In another case I changed them to rw-rw-rw and that still did not make a difference as I would have expected. 
    My fear is that my Mac HD is getting ready to take a DUMP literally.  Most of the stuff on the machine I don't care about however I do care about the family photo's and videos.  To this point I've been able to manually backup my photos to the external disk.  I have not yet backed up my videos.  Starting to get stressed about that.  I was about to take the PC in to Apple Care at the local store but wanted to disucss here as well.  Any help would be appreciated.

    This is done.  I went into the Apple store and they had me run SMART Untiliy on my machine.  There are a ton of bad sectors on my HD.  Time for a new disk. 

  • TS4002 Automatic backup failed.....there is no back up store capacity, but i have enough 5.0 gb.....what can be the problem ?

    Automatic backup failed
    I have enough capacity but its constantly give me this failure
    I cannot safe photo when i see them on a site
    What can be the problem ?

    You say you have enough capacity (on icloud), but it could be that the device's memory is near full (for a backup, the device needs a certain amount of free memory for working files). 
    Go to
    Settings>General>Usage.  This tells how much storage is used on both iCloud and on the device.
    As for photos - do not use icloud as a storage location for them.  First of all, only photos in the camera roll are backed up.  Even then, many user have reported that when they have performed a restore of an icloud backup, the photos were not synced and ended up being gone.
    IMPORTANT...
    Photos should be regularly synced to a computer (like you store photos from a digital camera) using either USB via iTunes (on a mac use iPhoto or Aperture to move them to an album) or using photo stream.  If you have been doing that, then you can sync those photos back to your device if ever they get erased on the device.
    If you haven't been saving photos except relying on iCloud to store them in a backup, then that is risky, as many users have discovered.
    Now - about backups failing...
    If you get the error "Backup not successful" and you've tried deleting the last backup and trying to back up manually without luck, try the following test:   Go to...
    Settings>iCloud>Storage & Backup>manage Storage, tap your device name in the Backups section, then look under Backup options.  Turn off all apps from backup and then do a manual backup.  If that doesn't work, then this post will not help.  If the backup works, then go back to the app list and turn some on and try another backup.  If successful, keep repeating these steps.  If it fails at some point, then try to zero in on the one app that seems to make the backup fail.  (I had this problem and found one app failing, probably due to a corrupt data file.)
    This process will take time, but if a backup works with no app data being used but clearly fails with the original settings, then somewhere in the mix of apps is a "bad" one.

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Backup failing with error - 0x8004231F

    Hi,
    I have Windows Server 2008 R2 Web Edition. Everything was working fine until recently. I tried checking for the log files, but I see that there are no log files that are created now in the location C:\Windows\Logs\WindowsServerBackup. The only files that

  • System Image Backup Failed During Backup

    I have a 2 year old HP pavilion g series notebook.  I was doing a system image backup onto dvd+r disks. It was nearly finished when on disk #99 I got this message "The Backup Failed. The system cannot find the path specified (0x80070003)  
    My computer is out of warranty and I'm out $60 in disks if they can't be used.  I need to know it there is a way to salvage what I saved and restart Image backup from where it left off?

    Hi CherylLyme,
    Welcome to the HP Forums!
    I would like to take a moment and thank you for using the forum, it is a great place to find answers.
    For you to have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.
    I understand that you were doing an image backup and when it was nearly finished you received  the error (0x80070003).  Here is a link to a Microsoft answer to assist you. Windows backup error 0x80070003 ( Answered by Vinod N)
    I am unsure if you would be able to start again and pick up on disk 99, as once you have repaired it, it will have changed from when you first ran the backup.  The disk you used were not read, writeable, so you would not be able to reuse them.  You may find that an external drive would be a more economical way to do your backups. The data would be in one place and easier to store.  If you decide to use a USB stick it must not be more then 32GB and will not say Windows 8 on it.
    You can most likely purchase an External drive for about the cost of replacing the disks.  Here is a link to HP Shopping External storage , but you can purchase one at many places, computer shops, Staples,Walmart, and Office Depot are just a few.  I hope this helps.

  • System Image Backup failing when trying to write to a Drobo 5N NAS

    I'm trying to make a full system image through file history, and I get part way through the process until I get the following error:
    The backup failed.
    There was a failure in preparing the backup image of one of the volumes in the backup set. (0x807800C5)
    Additional information:
    The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file. (0x80070021)
    I've found one other thread where this was an issue and the user said that he had no issues doing it to a USB drive, so I'm assuming it's related to using a network one. I can run file history/recovery (whatever it's called) to the same network attached
    server in the same parent folder so I know it's not a permission issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi,
    In order to know whethr this issue is related with the speicfic NAS, I suggest you try to backup the image to another external drive and check if the error persists.
    Actually, according to the error message, it seems more related with the files which need to be backed up, it is locked\unaccessable. I recommend you temporarily turn off any anti-virus program protection. Stop other running processes including background
    processes, then try to backup again, test the result.

    The backup operation that started at '‎2014‎-‎01‎-‎11T04:08:50.683000000Z' has failed because the Volume Shadow Copy Service operation to create a shadow copy of the volumes being backed up failed with following error code '2155348001'. Please review the event
    details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.
    Reviewing event details, as suggested, does not offer any solution.
    I have tried the suggested solutions in other similar threads of increasing the timeout value with the registry entry. 
    This does not work.
    I have not tried reregistering the VSS writers manually, as the only links I have found are for server 2003/2008 (not R2) and explicitly state that they won’t work on higher versions of the OS, since they now utilize manifests and the manual procedure could
    cause problems for those servers. Haven't found similar procedures for 2008 R2.
    I have been able to narrow this down a bit.
    A Windows 2008 R2 SP1 server with Hyper-V installed – backup to a network share is successful;
    Install the DPM 2012 agent – same backup fails with the 2155348001 error.
    We use DPM 2012 to backup VMs, but DPM cannot perform a bare metal backup/restore of server and the 2012 version no longer has the DPMSRT feature. 
    I prefer to run Bare Metal Backup to a file server share.
    Stuck on this one.

    Hi, 
    The issue is related to DPM, I would suggest you ask for help from DPM forums:

  • BMR-SS backup fails with error "the specified network name is no longer available"

    We are running DPM 2012 SP1 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system, backing up a Windows Server 2012 system that is a DC.  The agent version is 4.1.3417.0.  Both the DPM server and the DC are physical systems - brand new HP Proliant 360's.
    When creating the replicas for the 2012 server the first time, the backups work fine, and then for a day or so after that.  After a couple of days, the BMR-SS backups fail with the error "the specified network name is no longer available".  
    I can watch the backup happening in the Windows Server Backup console on the protected server - the BMR backup goes up to 99% and then fails.  BMR backups on all the other servers are working - we have a mix of Win2008R2 and Win2012. 
    Here is what I have tried:
    I can connect to the UNC path on the backup server without a problem during and after the backup is happening. 
    Tried reinstalling the DPM agent.
    Tried backing up directly from the protected server to another server's network share, which worked.
    I can copy multiple gigabyte files directly from the protected server to the DPM file share without a problem (the same one that DPM uses for the replica)
    Tried turning off the SCEP real-time protection during the backup.
    Any help would be appreciated - thanks.

    llo Boudewijn
    I followed Boudewijn's suggestion. 
    The Windows 2012R2 servers had no recovery partition in disk C. I created one (400MB) following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2930294/en-us and
     DPM system restore worked. But just once. 
    So this is not the solution to the problem......
    Is no one else having issues with DPM bare metal protection of Windows 2012R2 servers?
