  1. I get about 3,000 of these errors daily, they are all "._filename" which are Mac 'hidden' files. Any way to just skip these files during backups? *File "/Volumes/iMacTera2-1/WY_Wylde and Sons/TNT/88935_TNT_Vol22Issue02_Hyundai/Tip:Spotlight/._Special Service Tool Spotlight.docx": can't read, error -1002 ( unknown Mac OS error) MapError: unknown Mac error -5000
  2. I guess Retrospect isn't backing up the Mac 'hidden' ._ files, after each daily backup I have a log with over 3,000 errors, all are the "._filename" files. Otherwise, the 'real' files are backing up normally. Any idea on how to either make Retrospect backup these hidden files, or have Retrospect ignore the hidden files?
  3. Using a backup script with the "exclude label is red" and "enclosing folder label is red" and I've noticed that Retrospect scans the entire "red" folder, but does not back it up. Because this "red" folder holds over 500GB of stuff that I don't want backed up, I also don't want Retrospect to waste time scanning the entire folder before excluding it. Each night Retrospect spends several hours scanning this "red" folder. Any ideas on how to get Retrospect to totally ignore this "red" folder?
