  1. I want to be able to do a backup Script of changed/modified Files only I want this backup Script to be to a Backup File I want to be able to set the maximum size of that Scripts Backup File [say 500GB] I want the backup Script to delete older Files once the Backup File is full, thereby making room for newer Files In essence a WORM Backup File process Can Retrospect do that?
  2. -519 -530 again and again and again

    Well ... we updated to v14.6.x [SERVER and CLIENT] for Mac OSX and the problem magically went away :-)
  3. Force PROACTIVE Script to Run

    Maser that kind of does it, but something else is happening, some PROACTIVEs do not run even if I click the Schedule button and re-tie them ...
  4. -519 -530 again and again and again

    The Posts seem to have got out of sync ... so, to recap ... Mac Server using Retrospect is on .100 manually in it's system prefs network panel. Mac Server using Retrospect is on .100 manually on the routers reserved devices list.
  5. -519 -530 again and again and again

    Apologises about the Posts location. Forgive this #oldman, Retrospect since 1992, time to retire perhaps? :-( I have done the IP address, fixed IP, on the Netgear 6300, and all Clients have taken up those IPs fine on reboot. The Server is at .100 I have removed and added the troublesome Client at .18 as per the manual and decades of good practice. Same issues :-( The clients goes dead/dormant and will not respond to retrospect server.
  6. -519 -530 again and again and again

    I reinstalled, again ! :-(, then ... Soon as I open or close system preferences it fails again.
  7. -519 -530 again and again and again

    update ... The Retrospect Client [v13.5 FYI] is OFF and there is no way to turn it on :-( I cannot see what the alert triangle means or says. Advanced TAB in Retrospect [cmd click in system prefs] tells me nothing more either.
  8. -519 -530 again and again and again

    Hi, I'm back! :-) I have set fixed IP addresses to the MacBooks from the Netgear 6300 Router based on their MacBook MAC Address. All MacBooks have responded to that fixed IP being set when they next rejoined or returned to this network. We still get the error.
  9. 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.
  10. This problem has suddenly just started for me too :-( NetConnMax: :Setup: version too old 0xa34980 Retrospect 9.0.2 (107) OSX 10.10.5 With this setup has has worked perfectly for months FYI.
  11. Here is a Strange one... My emails have stopped arriving from Retrospect. When I look at a Test email sent from Retrospect it says 5th January at 00:00 [no year] When I check the Mac Server Retrospect is on, and my receiving Mac, and Email App, the dates are correct. I have checked with the Data Centre on my VPS that hosts the email Account used and that is also correct. Where might this date issue be coming from, and why cant I now see/receive emails from this one server. [i expect the date is filing the email somewhere deep on my email App instead of at the top; I sort/read emails by date sent FYI] Other Mac Servers with the same version of Retrospect are AOK. Retrospect 9.0.2 OSX 10.10.5.latest
  12. Retrospect 9.0.2 (107) Mac OSX Server 10.10.5 Mac Pro 24GB Ram Loads'o HD = 30TB of Various Int & Ext Drives In the last few months, Retrospect has started ejecting the newest* external 8TB GRAID HD after Script runs. The other 8TB GRAIDs are not ejected. We have replaced the Drive* twice in case it was faulty ... it is not, been RTM'd and proven AOK. I have checked all the Scripts and none have Eject Media or such selected. We have two similar setups in two other offices in the UK and they are rock-solid with no such issue. Where else might I look for the issue please? Thanks, James.
  13. :-) Yes, I did RTFM first and tried many options before asking ...
  14. So, I.T. have changed our Network setup, again ... We now have 3 network ranges within our company; ... 255 fixed wired ethernet desktops ... 255 fixed wired ethernet servers ... 255 wifi laptops Users could be on any of these. subnet for all Retropsect Server is on So I need to lock-on and track the Retrospect Clients for Mac Desktops or Laptops across these IP ranges using my Retrospect Server for ac OSX Server. Can I do this? Some setup in Retrospect->Preferences-?Network ? Thanks for you help, Mac OSX Desktops 10.10 to 10.12 Mac OSX Server 10.11.6 Retrospect Server for Mac 12.5.0 (111)
  15. Hi, I have the Reseller NFR License for v12.x Multi-Server for Mac OSX. Today I have the error "Your license has expired (-682)" I am thinking this is some system error or something, as the NFR is forever ... Any ideas please how to solve this glitch? NFR* = Not For Resale
