When running full backup, stops after a while, goes to main aTV screen

Someone suggested to me to backup before I put 4.4.4 on, I didn’t know about this.

I ran a normal backup, ran fine and I can see it in the restore. I decided to do a full backup, it ran for ages, then got a flash of black screen and went to main aTV screen. I checked in the restore backup and iti didn’t do it.

I’ve tried this twice now and both times same result.

Is this a bug, or me doing something wrong? I wanted to run backup before I do the 4.4.4 so I can finally use Airplay mirroring


This can happen if your Full backups are VERY large.

Your best option may be to simply run a normal backup, as this will save all the essential information.
