    You only need to create the Disaster Recovery Disk on the Backup Server. If you have a valid Disaster Recovery license on the Backup Server the functionality will be added to the Disaster Recovery Disk. When you boot the Client from the Disaster Recovery Disk the Dissimilar Hardware Restore will be available.

    Oh well, #sigh I have a few Macs. All on WIFi All on DHCP They have to be this way, because they roam from office-to-office, client-to-client, home-to-work-to-home ... like laptops do. The error -530 and associated -519 has be around in almost every version of retrospect I have used for the past 20 years. I can never find the solution, apart from a full client reinstall, and I can not be doing that every week TBH! Is there ever going to be a stable answer? Each Mac, Client and Server has no firewall or anti-virus FYI. The fixed desktop Laptops that do not leave the office have no issues. The laptops returning to the office login automatically to the WIFI and have no network issues for everyday work; email, www, ftp, server shares, printing ... what so ever. Server: Mac OSX 10.11.6 Client: OSX 10.12.6 Retrospect 13.5 Please don't say 'upgrade to the latest version of Retrospect or I may have to slap you :-) That has never been an answer to this issue.

    I think mdgarnett should do a Copy Media Set, with the destination Media Set a new one whose first Member is on the larger drive. Instructions for doing this are on pages 137-139 of the Retrospect Mac 14 User's Guide. Instructions for creating a new Media Set are on pages 87-90. Obviously mdgarnett will have to change the Destination Media Set in scripts that reference the one on the smaller drive.

    First, this post by the very knowledgeable Lennart_T (formerly known as Lennart Thelander) says there is a 1TB limit on File Backup Sets. They do exist, but they are a pre-Retrospect-Windows-8 facility you should not use; you should be using Disk Backup Sets instead. Second, the "Scalable data protection" feature announcement for Retrospect Windows 12 says"Retrospect is now certified to back up 1 billion files per backup set, 100 TB of data per backup set, and 50 million files per device."

    The VWMare add-on doesn't support current versions of VMWare and we are no longer selling this add-on unless someone absolutely needs to use it. This old add-on is discontinued. If you would like Virtual Machine support, please look into purchasing Retrospect Virtual which is a complete solution for virtual environments.

    As you have found, Retrospect names its tapes with a sequence number and the Backup set name. The pre-labelled tapes you have will be the barcode labels intended for use in a library or auto loader. Since you have a standalone drive with no barcode reader, the tape labels are irrelevant. I would simply get some sticky labels and relabel the tapes according to the Retrospect numbering scheme. You can add them all to the backup set in advance by inserting the tapes one by one, and clicking the ADD button, and then write the label for the name that Retrospect gives for each tape. It's a bit laborious but you only have to do it once. This scheme works perfectly for me
