Hi @NOP I get an error message trying to reply to your original thread (it just disappeared?):
In the middle of the operation the entire system freezes. No mouse movement, keyboard input ignored, xentop freezes, the only thing I can do is power cycle.
I have already tried this twice, and it’s reproducible. I am assuming it is hanging in the exact same spot during the backup operation, however I have not timed the operation.
What can I do to troubleshoot the issue? Are there logs I could check? I would really like to have this feature work…
When using the 5.4 kernel I experience similar seemingly random hangs and crashes, especially when running restore (verify). Someone here suggested going to the 4.19 kernel and ever since I cannot reproduce those issues.
There is no telling if that is what you are experiencing, but you could try.
sudo qubes-dom0-update kernel-419
Then when booting, select the 4.19 kernel.
