Backup reports complete although it is not
I'm using NSwB and a few days ago I started creating an online backup of my files. The process takes too long due to my slow upload speed (less than 1 Mbps). When the backup runs for many hours continuously some times it fails prompting to "check the destination drive". That's not my main problem. Yesterday, though the backup is not even close to half complete, suddenly the loading percentage came to 100% and the backup icon became green. That was a completely wrong indication. I run it once more and soon it went to 100% again. Why is that happening? How can I trust the software from now on to report the correct status? It already says that the last backup was completed successfully 14 hours ago.
My only suspicion so far is a conflict between Windows' File History and Norton. I use both programs for backup, File History for a complete backup on my external hard drive and NS for backing up online the most important documents and photos. Since I've read that for performance reasons File History uses a file attribute to see if the files have been backed up instead of scanning them to compare changes and if I assume that Norton does the same, could that create a conflict between the two programs?
