I got the exact same "Input file read failures" message last night when I
was backing up - but then I discovered that I didn't have media loaded in
the drive I was trying to back on to. The error message was misleading and
unhelpful ("hey you idiot, put the disk in the drive" would have made more
sense)... but the solution turned out to be simple.
Doesn't solve your problem except it offers the suggestion that you look
beyond the message and double-check to make sure that your data key
connection and space available is sufficient.

Subject: [TMG] Backups (5.12)
I'm attempting to backup my projects in v 5.12 and I'm told I can't do that
on three of my five projects. The message is:
"Input file read failures - This error occurs when a file read operation is
performed on a Zip file that is locked or restricted by another process.
Please check the destination drive."
I'm backing up to a data key -- I've tried two different data keys with the
same results. I've also tried 1) selecting "backup" from "File" and 2)
selecting "Yes - backup" when closing. Neither works.
Thank you for your help............Carol Collins
