Ive tried repeatedly to install Iomega QuikProtect on my Mac

Customer Question

I've tried repeatedly to install Iomega QuikProtect on my Mac (OS 10.6.8) but it hangs while "Running package scripts" or "waiting for other installation to be completed."

Any answer for this problem?

Thanks

Is that backup software?
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
But I suggest you not use their software.... not reliable, just erase the drive as Mac OS extended Journaled and use Time Machine instead.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Tried the download you suggested, but when installation began I again get the message "Waiting for other installations to complete."

How do I "erase the drive as Mac OS extended Journaled"?
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Restart. Then go to Applications/Utilities and open Disk Utility choose the drive on the left and go to Erase on the right. Choose Format Mac OS Extended (Journaled) when that is complete Time Machine should ask if you want to use it for backup if not let me know.
