One of my backup scripts started on Sunday with the log reporting "Normal backup using MonWedFriSun at 26/03/2017, 13:54:18 26/03/2017 13:54:22: Finished scanning backup set data files" Since then the Summary window for the running script has shown 'Building Catalog file' Now 5 days Should I stop it and do a manual rebuild of the catalog or just let it run its course - or is it really corrupted? Thanks

What does Apple's Activity Monitor say? Is there really an activity going on for Retrospect?

 

For instance:

CPU usage?

Disk activity?

Network activity? (If the media set member is on the network.)

That screenshot doesn't tell me anything, apart from the fact that instant scan is running. Please turn off instant scan and anything else that is running, except Retrospect itself. Now, is the any disk activity or network activity?

What kind of media set do you have? Where are the members located?

The media set is a disk set

I was expecting to see the whole window. Part of the most important info is at the bottom of the window.

 

And you still haven't told me where the disk media set members are located. Local disks? Or network disks?

OK, local disk. Then it is the "Disk" pane in Apple's Activity Monitor that is of most interest. If the computer reads at least (say) 100 MB/second from the disk(s), then Retrospect is working. If not, you should stop Retrospect, reboot the computer and then try Retrospect again. You will probably have to repair the catalog file.
