  1. Thanks again. That worked but the backups listed so may errors that in the end I rebuilt the catalogs and now all is well. EXCEPt that one client is consistently unrecognised because of password 507 errors. I'm confused about client passwords. Should they match the password in Retrospect General preferences. If not, how do I make the clients visible to the backups
  2. Thanks, but neither of these offers anything other than reinstalling and restarting. I have four scripts which access my windows machine, out of hours and unattended. if I have already restarted the windows machine that day, the first one might run properly but the subsequent scripts don't. Even if I change the schedule to run in office hours it means I have to restart the machine for every script. Surely this can't be acceptable. And anyway, I have run these scripts for at least four years with only the occasional restart. I haven't changed the system software on either the mac or the windows machine, so what is causing this and is there a possible workaround? Windows client is 7.0.112, mac retrospect is 6.1.230. Would upgrading to v8 resolve this or is it just the same on that version?
  3. For some years I have been using Retrospect 6.1/230 with a windows Client on a Parallels Virtual Machine; all worked well. Recently I have been receiving a number of -541 errors on the windows machine, which I can overcome by reinstalling the client and restarting the Windows machine - tedious, but now I have to do it almost every day and I am often getting -1028 errors as well. Two Questions: What could be causing this and tis there a simple solution? It's years since I installed the Windows client (7.0.107) and I don't know where I got it from. Is there a specific Windows client to use with the Mac Retrospewct or do I just use the regular Windows retrospect client - if so, which and where do I get it? Many thanks Roger
  4. I was modifying a script when another started to run and so, without really considering what i was doing, I stopped it and chose 'skip scheduled backups until…'. I got distracted and forgot what I had done and so I haven't been backed up for 2 weeks (because I moved the selector to Dec 2010.) Is there a simple way to restart all backups or do I have to modify the schedule of each script? Thanks Roger
  5. Problem resolved by attaching iMac to Retrospect Server via firewire and restoring in Target disk mode. No conflict with a live system - all seems to be working OK. Thanks for your input.
  6. The TDM approach worked. Disk restored and all seems to be running well. Thanks very much for your help. Roger
  7. Sorry for the lack of info Your questions: 1 RDU is 6.1.15.101 2 Client is 6.2.234 3 Host machine is running 10.4.11 The target machine will not start up even in Safe Mode - the apple appears, then the cog wheel, then the machine restarts. I have tried deleting the Framework folder (using Target mode) but it makes no difference - something else seems to have been corrupted. The target mac now has 10.5.8 re-installed and I shall try your suggestion of a TDM restore. Many thanks
  8. Thanks for your reply. Retrospect is 6.1.230, latest client software on destination disk. Yes, I have two HP printers, color laserjet and 2840, both of which worked with 10.5.8 on the disk that went down, which is why they are on the backup. Disk is mac OS Extended (journalled) on a GUID partition. I shall try restore again tomorrow (am in UK). Is this HP file causing the problem or the file that was loaded before it (i.e. the file that appears in the snapshot immediately before this HP file). Should I just omit the complete Frameworks HP folder Roger
  9. A month ago I had to restore a backup from a removable disk set to a new (new to me, but second-hand) intel imac. it worked fine. Now the 250g drive in that iMac has failed and I have replaced it with a new 500g. Following instructions I reinstalled leopard and updated to same as dead disk - 10.5.8. All goes smoothly on restore until it suddenly stops with message in log: - 5/11/2009 12:14:43: Restoring from MWF… Can't write file “libHPIOnetsnmp.5.dylibâ€, error -34 (volume full), path: “Michael's Disk/Library/Frameworks/HPServicesInterface.framework/Versions/A/Libraries/libHPIOnetsnmp.5.dylibâ€. Trouble writing files, error -34 (volume full). This has happened three times and I do not know what is the cause. Disk isn't full - there's 300g available. What makes it worse is that the iMac refuses to startup and the sytems have to be reinstalled each time. Any ideas what can be causing this? I read in one post about a '.DS_' file being the cause, but I don't seem to have on on my backup? Any other workable solutions? (sorry for dual post, I think I originally put this in wrong forum)

  12. Update: on latest backup Retrospect hung after beginning to write to disk.
  13. In the last couple of days I have encountered a problem with Retrospect not responding in 10.4.11. I was using 6.1.180 (?), and after all backups for day had been completed and while Retrospect was idle it would suddenly become unresponsive to OSX. Only a Force Quit would restore it and then the same thing would happen again after backups had run. I have been using this version for some time, and thought that I might need to update to latest version (6.1.230). Did that but get same problem. Whole machine becomes unresponsive and slow but only Retrospect shows in Force Quit window as 'not responding'. Tried to assess what changes mad to machine that might cause this - only thought is that I did a DiskWarrior repair recently. Could this be cause - and if so how do I cure? Thanks Roger
