Default [Q] backing up failed??!

hey, so today i rooted my galaxy note 3 (n9005) using the cfire auto method. i installed cwm recovery on the device and tried creating a nandroid backup. it all goes fine until it says backing up /data then it fails. it does NOT generate a md5 sum file. so i want to ask if the backup i have is OK to use for future restoring or should i do something else. I really dont care about my downloaded apps, when i restore, i just want a stock device.
thanks.

No, unless it generated md5 sum there won't be any file there. Where did you try saving the file, internal or external sd card?

Oh, ok. Maybe try backing up again?

First time I tried backing up mine it did it successfully even generated a md5 sum. But when I tried to restore, the md5 check failed so since then I just use an external sd card for backup.
