I have managed to do *another* backup on the same disk. I mv'd the existing backup out of the way, and repeated the backup. This time no problems, and the disk didn't g read-only.
I did plug the drive into a different USB port.
So it appears driff-backup seems to have worked, but I'm etting suspicious abut that USB port.
