Awesome, that you answered my question- thanks!
I will give it a try and will post again, after trying. My first thoughts were that some of the virtual machines are bearing, because they are too large to get backupped or the target responds too slow- but the socket hint is also a good catch.

It could be hanging up trying to read (forever) from a socket file. Try
using the "--exclude-sockets" option.

The mounted filesystem becomes read-only because you unplugged the drive.

Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
