I am using Retrospect Desktop 5.1.177 downloaded trial application to back up approximately 12 G of data to a new LACIE 160 G firewire drive. My computer is a G4 Sawtooth Macintosh running system 9.2.2, but the same problem occurs on my ibook running Panther. After backing up several partitions, Retrospect stops with an incomplete execution message. The log reads normally till the problem occurs and then it reads:
- 7/10/2004 5:11:44 AM: Copying System Running…
Can't add that much data to backup set.
The limit is 2.0 G.
7/10/2004 5:11:46 AM: Execution incomplete.
Remaining: 12105 files, 894.7 MB
Completed: 0 files, zero KB
Performance: 0.0 MB/minute
Duration: 00:00:02 (00:00:01 idle/loading/preparing)
Is it true that you can not backup more than 2.0G in a backup set on a firewire drive? How can I adjust Retrospect so it will back up more using one set? Thanks Al
