Re: Data Protector Error 1040

Hi Albert,

2 questions:

1. What OS are you running?

2. What device are you attempting to back up to?

Hi Albert:

DPX Error 1040 is caused by a communication problem with the device which you are trying to use.

Hi Albert:

You need to fix the communication problem with your backup device to prevent the DPX Error 1040.
