  1. Hi all, just to check if someone has come across my issue: When extracting the Retrospect 8 ZIP File Retro_DE_800199.zip my Avast (newest Internet Security Version) insists on having found a trojan horse. Win32:IRCBot-EYV [Trj] I have attached a screen shot of AVAST's message. Any thoughts? I also posted this to Avast. Thanks Kobe
  2. Thanks Colin. I tried this but to no avail. Have ou been able to tweak this to work? I get strange side effects when setting Retrospect or Launcher to bypass UAC. One is that even though Retrospect start without prompt it complains about not having enough rights to perform all backup tasks. I guess unless EMC²/Dantz confirms this problem we are left alone.
  3. Thanks all for repsonding Just a quick update on my side: I fiddled around wiht the Vista UAC and deactivated it. A reboot immediatly fired off the overdue retrospect tasks. A further test with a freshly created job workes fine. So the UAC must stop the retrolauncher to start properly. Well, I know that Vista UAC is not the best of its kind but I sure do not like it to just shut it down to get my retrospect tasks scheduled. Does that stir up further suggestions? I just wonder that not more people have these problems :speechless: .
  4. Can somebody please confirm the settings of the retrospect and retrospect launcher service under vista home premium. I.e. the user the launcher service must log on: System, Administrator, User in Administrator group. Is the "allow interact with user desktop" flag important? In addition, does the type of user retrospect logs on play a role when autostarting tasks (other than for remote backups)? Thanks
  5. I lived with this for another half year - don't know how. Anyway I wanted to bring this up again. I can't get Retrospect to launch automatically for my scheduled tasks. Apparently this works for most other users so I ask myself what could possibly interfere with the Retrospect Launcher that it would not start. I am willing to try a clean re-install .. is there anything I need to especially focus on when re-installing? Or is it just good enough to de-install, reboot, install (as admin). Thanks Dirk
  6. Well, I've given up on this and thought I let you know. I managed to get one full backup on DVD-RAM, though, but during the very next backup (scheduled) Retrospect did not recognise the DVD-RAM in the drive. A shear pain in the ... you get my point :angry2: . I have gone back to DVD-RW for now. Thanks
  7. Here is the error code: Probleme beim Schreiben: "1-Wichtige Daten 1" (2583277056), Fehler -116 (Volume ist nicht vorhanden) After a few more tests it seems it is mere coincidense if Retrospect recognises DVD-RAM or loses it again. Does Windows Autorun/Autoplay feature have to do something with it?
  8. I did some more tests and here is what it came up with. I was able to conduct a half Backup on DVD-RAM using a test removable disk backup set. Anyway, for Retrospect to recognise the DVD-RAM I had to open the Windows Explorer and click on the DVD icon before starting Retrospect. It looks like a mount of the DVD-RAM is needed beforehand (using UNIX terminology here). When I close the explorer and start Retrospect it will not recognise the DVD-RAM but treat the DVD drive as an optical drive. I ventured of from my PC while it was conducting the backup and when I came back the screensaver was on. After log on Retrospect seemed to have stuck half way through (progress bar not moving but Retrospect still receptable). I stopped the backup looked at the windows explorer and switched to my C-drive in the explorer viewer. I tried to re-invoke the backup, but Retrospect would not recognise the DVD-RAM anymore. There seems to be something crucial to when Retrospect is actually able to detect a DVD-RAM or otherwise treat the DVD drive as a DVD-RW opticle drive. By the way, I use Windows Vista 64Bit. The DVD-RAM drive is a Samsung SH-S202L. The DVD was formatted in UDF 2.50. Any further ideas?
  9. Hi all, I recently installed a new DVD-Drive with DVD-RAM capability. Now, I can't get it to work. Training Retrospect to use this drive with a DVD-RAM medium (Verbatim 5x single sided rewritable) fails. A UDF formated disc is labled incompatible. Using removable instead of optical drives when creating a backup set does not recognise the DVD drive. Is a combo DVD-RW/DVD-RAM drive supported by Retrospect with regards to DVD-RAM? DVD-RWs work just fine as optical backup sets. Am I missing something here? Any suggestions? Thanks Dirk
  10. OK here goes. I have been looking for an answer to this one for a couple of days but did not manage to track one down. I recently had to replace my old computer and the new one came with vista 64-Bit Home Premium. I installed retrospect (Version 7.6.111) and scheduled some daily jobs. None of them will automatically start. I have to start Retrospect manually which will then start the jobs immediately if they are overdue or at the scheduled time. Here is what I did to try to resolve the issue: - de- and re-installed - installed with (run as administrator" command - set retrospect to run as both, current and specific user (which is set as administrator) - change user of launcher service to a specific administrator user All to no avail Is there a definitive solution to this? In addition I noticed that vista logs: "The Retrospect Launcher service is marked as an interactive service. However, the system is configured to not allow interactive services. This service may not function properly." a 7030 Windows error message. Any suggestions? Thanks Kobe :rollie: PS: sorry if this has been discussed before. Then I must have missed it :confused2:
  11. Thanks AmyJ for this quick response. the Backup-solution is not a valid option, since I intend to use the NAS as my streaming device for my Music collection. Besides, I am using a nightly standard Backup as a parallel service and am using a simple external USB device for this. One question though: the dates logged by Retrospect as comparison errors are exactly the dates of the original Windows files. In my case "16.04.2004 23:40:54" time stamp of creation and "01.07.2007 22:40:06" as time stamp of last change. If, as in my case, retrospect complains about the target file having the time stamp "01.07.2007 22:40:06" whereas the source file has "16.04.2004 23:40:54" I assume that two different time stamps are compared. In addition Windows lists the source file with "01.07.2007 22:40:06" as date of last change. So how come, that Retrospect logs the Windows creation time stamp and not the time stamp of last change?? Since I have a lot of files to duplicate (> 24000) efficiency is one major concern. Initial duplication took more than 12 hours including the comparison. Thanks & Regards Dirk
  12. Same here! Just bought a Maxtor MSS II and try to duplicate my local MP3 collection to be broadcastet on the MSS II via twonkymedia server.

Strangely not for all but for some. What's going on here. Somebody any idea? Thanks and Regards Dirk
  13. Hey thanks, unfortunately I see nothing of any bluetooth kind. I see my CD Burner, DVD Burner my S-ATA RAID-1 drives (as one of course) and my main ATA harddisk.
  14. Thanks. The only Info message I get is "Bluetooth Hub already in HCI mode" Ereignistyp: Informationen Ereignisquelle: LBTServ Ereigniskategorie: Keine Ereigniskennung: 4 Datum: 12.12.2006 Zeit: 23:39:02 Benutzer: Nicht zutreffend Beschreibung: Bluetooth Hub already in HCI mode Logitech drivers are up-to-date. It all seems to have something to do, that Bluetooth adapter as well as my harddrive are connected to USB. And for sure it does not happen if Retrospect does not run. Somehow a different driver get's installed/assigned to my bluetooth-bus-enumerator as can be seen on the hardware tab. Because after it fails I see two bluetooth icons on the hardware tab, one dark blue (Microsoft I presume) and one light blue (the Widcomm stuff). After reinstalling the driver for the darkish blue icon I end up with one light blue icon with two sub icons: one for bluetooth wireless hub and one for bluetooth-bus-enumerator. And everything is fine again until next evening when retrospect finishes work. Sorry, but nothing more that I can say and thanks for your help.
  15. Hi all, I encounter the following problem: Whenever I back up my C partition (usually every night) I get a "bluetooth-license check" failure message pop-up. I then have to re-install the correct bluetooth driver in the hardware panel for my bluetooth device. Set-Up: Win-XP Logitech bluetooth MX Keyboard + Bluetooth Mouse + Bluetooth USB Stick Backup on two Western-Digital FireWire Drives of which one is also USB connected (for it is a multi card reader as well) In addition: one SCSI CD-ROM, one SCSI CD Burner, one ATA DVD Burner The funny thing is, that at a certain time when Retrospect starts backing up the C: partition, the failure pop-up shows. But this does not always happen at the same time. It happens while backing up but sometimes the pop-up appears even minutes later after Retrospect finishes. But it surely always happens. Any suggestions
