Computers are the weirdest fucking thing I tell you.
My backup utility sometimes fails to connect to the network drive. It’s “already in use”. Sure, I may have it mounted, let’s unmount it and try again. Nothing. Reboot the NAS, reboot my machine, reboot every device in my home, nothing. Re-select the drive, keep it mounted, close all other applications, nothing.
It stays broken for a week or two. Then, suddenly, magically, it starts making regular backups again. I touched nothing!
Computers, I swear to god.
