Hi Slajgaj, I don't thing that you
did something wrong. I think that you discovered another unpublished new feature in 4.1.6, closely related to this published one:
Backup drive no longer needs to be formatted to FAT32 - system automatically formats the drive (Note: formatting deletes complete content on backup drive)
Maybe the Olive formats the backup drive not any longer to FAT32, but to EXT3 or some other Linux format. Or to a hidden FAT32 format, type 1c.
There are many formats available, but the Olive must be restricted to a Linux format (type 83), or a FAT-like format.
If you download Knoppix, burn it to a DVD, then you could start your pc with it see what type the backup has, e.g. with fdisk.
But maybe some other member here will jump in. I don't have made the Olive backup for a considerable time, because I have found a much quicker way. Unfortunately, that's only feasible for someone who can open the unit and has some knowledge of Linux at hand.
