Elements 2018 - back up Organizer not responding after abt 80pct complete??

Running a full back up of abt 900GB but it does not complete. Organizer "not responding" after abt 80 pct completion. In the last try I just pointed to an alternative internal disk with ample space.

Why is this happening and what is the remedy?
Is there an upper limit to practical back up seize? Should I try to brake up my albums in smaller parts - but how if so?
Thanks
(Ps Why is not Organizer a category of its own?)

You can run into a problem with maximum file size if your back up drive is NTFS formatted, rather than FAT32.

Thanks,
Third try, after cleaning out all tempfiles etc and closing all other applications did complete!! The internal disk is NTFS.
