I assume the following error sources:
1. If you use AppleTalk (either Ethernet or LocalTalk) a heavy network
traffic might cause the connection to appear as like a broken network
because the timeout limit at the Mac side was exceeded. Solution: Trash
the server or disconnect your Mac from AT.
2. A corrupted data entry. I had one at my last attempt to backup. It
crashed the Mac at backing up the Works data. I then opened and closed
every Works document and after that the backup worked on nicely. The
same I had with names. There the reason was binary crap in a names card
which I got by beam. The binary crap can be found as three dots like
periods after any of the entries.
