    Since adding a LaCie Genie Timeline external drive I receive the following message every couple of weeks:

    "Warning! Backup not configured. Genie Timeline is unable to access backup settings. You must configure a new backup or your data will not be protected."

    Then I have the option to either close the warning box or to start a new backup which I always do. However, this is happening so frequently that there must be a problem somewhere either with the external drive or with the settings. Can anyone shed any light on the matter?

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 and run Windows 7 and Firefox.

    For what it's worth, I'm experiencing essentially the same problem with Timeline Pro 2, though the error message is worded slightly differently. I too am using Windows 7 and I'm saving backups to an external NAS built using NASLite.

    I've posted a query to the Genie forums, but I'm still waiting for a reply.

    Oddly, this evening when I booted my PC it looks like Timeline is happy again and knows what and where to backup. Rather odd.
