  1. Is there a way to export or otherwise save scripts to a file? I have created about 20 backup scripts which I would like to preserve should the Retrospect backup server itself have a disk failure. Of course, the next question is how would I import or restore those scripts when I recreate the server? Thanks for your help.
  2. I want to thank CallMeDave for his advice. It was right on the money. I deleted the file Library/Preferences/Retrospect/retrorunfile and started Retrospect manually to cause it to be recreated. Scheduled backups have been humming along right on time for 3 weeks now. Given the robustness of Mac OS Server 10.3 it was a bit disheartening to learn from natew that corruption of preferences files seems so acceptable. But at least the workaround is simple. Thanks again CallMeDave.
  3. I'm having this very same problem with Mac OS X Server 10.3.6 and Retrospect Server version 6.0.204 running on a PowerMac G5 dual processor system which runs 7x24. Sporadically the scheduled backups do not run. Once the schedule is missed, it stays missed: scheduled backups do not resume. Logging in and running any manual backup kick starts the automated jobs which run as scheduled in the 10:30 pm to 1:00 am period. Once restarted, the schedule continues normally for a random number of days at which time the cycle repeats. Any insights would be appreciated. Thanks.
