Retrospect client not starting on El Capitan beta? in Retrospect 9 or higher for Macintosh Posted September 26 · Edited October 1 by DavidHertzberg P.S.: One can indeed assign a Tag to a favorite Folder and use it to back up; P.P.S.: up-thread post is correct for non-Smart Tags · Report reply On 9/26/2019 at 12:18 PM, Nigel Smith said: Oh, but he does! Being able to tell RS that "this new client is that old client, only reinstalled" would be useful. Not having to re-define Favourite Folders, re-do Tags, etc, would be great. But I get the feeling that there are practical, and probably security, reasons why this can't/shouldn't be done else we would have had the feature ages ago. But, in the meantime, Tags are a time-saving feature that anyone who isn't using should take a good look at. Nigel Smith, Pages 40-42 of the Retrospect Mac 16 User's Guide imply that you can assign a Tag to a Favorite Folder. So on "this new client is that old client, only reinstalled" you would have to redefine any Favorite Folders and assign them the same Tags they had before, but if your scripts used Tags to designate Favorite Folders you wouldn't have to change the scripts. If you did this, in most cases the NHS (I noticed how you spell "Favourite", even though your Profile doesn't specify Location) wouldn't have to treat you for extreme finger fatigue resulting from "client" reinstallation. P.S.: In Sources I added a Tag for my Favorite Folder on a drive local to my Mac Pro. Then, for my my normally-unscheduled "Sat. Backup Incremental" script, I un-checkmarked that Favorite Folder and checkmarked the Tag instead. Finally I did a Run of the script to the Media Set I'm using this week; it did what it normally does, finishing with backing up that Favorite Folder via the Tag. So the first paragraph of this post is correct. P.P.S.: In Sources I added Mimi'sOldG4, gave it a non-Smart new Tag, and also gave a non-Smart new Tag to David'sMacBookPro. Then, for my my normally-unscheduled "Sat. Backup Incremental" script, I un-checkmarked the Smart Tag for All Clients and checkmarked the non-Smart newTags instead—dragging them in the Summary pane into the desired backup sequence. Finally I did a Run of the script to the Media Set I'm using this week; it did what it normally does, giving a -3203 error message for Mimi'sOldG4 (because Retrospect Mac 16 can no longer actually back up "client" machines booted under OS X 10.3 using the 32-bit Legacy Client—even though Sources can still Add such "clients"). So this up-thread post is correct; the procedure for creating and eliminating non-Smart Tags on pages 40-41 of the Retrospect Mac 16 User's Guide is independent of their use for a specific Source—it's the checkbox in the Tags tab that designates whether a specific non-Smart Tag is used for a specific Source.
