    I am backing up my home folder to an external drive. I've tried several times and it ends up erroring out about 85% through. Is there an option that will allow me to see what files are being copied so i can determine what file it's dieing on?

    There is a feature in LaCie, SilverKeeper (free utility runs with all disks) that stops on files it cannot backup and gives you the choice to skip.

    Not my choice for a backup utility but handy for this.
