    7.5.387

    I first installed 7.5.387 on top of my previous installation which was running fine under Vista. Then I started getting a lot of errors I never saw before. So I came here and found this advice. I uninstalled Retrospect and reinstalled it again, but I still get the errors. I can no longer make backups of my Vista (Ultimate 32) PC. Can you help at all? I posted detailed error logs elsewhere in this thread.

    It did not help. I still get this series of errors when Retrospect tries to backup the registry on Vista: Apologies for the length of this ... - 5/28/2007 11:45:25 AM: Copying VISTA (C:) File "C:\Boot\BCD": can't

    7.5.387

    Ever since I updated to 7.5.387 the backups I run on my Vista box are failing to complete successfully. I see a raft of -1017 and -1020 errors that I never did before. More omniously, I also see this: MapError: unknown Windows error -2,147,217,405 W2dbWMIDbOp: pWMIRep->BackupREGDB failed, winerr -2147217405, error -1001 Can't back up WMI Repository, error -1001 (unknown Windows OS error) RegGetSystemRegPath: not in windows folder "\device\harddiskvolume1\boot\bcd " Unknown Windows error? Has Retrospect lost its ability to recognize Vista? Sigh ... Any ideas? -- bc
  5. Many many thanks. That's not exactly intuitive. I would never have guessed ... Bob Cronin
  6. Some weeks ago I was going on vacation and did not want my regualrly scheduled backups to run while I was away. So I went into the Activity Monitor in Retro Pro 7 and clicked the "Don't allow scheduled and waiting executions to start" checkbox. All well and good, the backups did not run while I was away. However, since I returned, I have been unable to get any backups to run on schedule. They always end up showing "Deferred". If I go back to the Activity Monitor, the "Don't Allow" setting is still checked, but it is greyed out so I cannot UN-check it. Can anyone help? I went trolling thru the registry looking for some likely setting to manually tweak, to no avail. Bob Cronin
  7. Ok, well, doesn't it seem like a bug (on someone's part, MS and/or Dantz) that an ongoing backup would not be enough activity to keep the machine awake? Is there any possibility that Dantz might accept this issue as their problem and pursue a solution, or am I stuck having to try to convince MS it is their problem?

    Retrospect Script w/Windows Asleep

    I made this work using external scripting. Here's my RetroEventHandler.bat file: @echo off set _PROC=%1 shift goto :%_PROC% :StartApp goto :EXIT :EndApp goto :EXIT :StartBackupServer goto :EXIT :StopBackupServer goto :EXIT :StartScript call wake %1 ask /n /ty,60 Pausing to wait for Retrospect client to start on %1 ... goto :EXIT :EndScript goto :EXIT :StartSource goto :EXIT :EndSource goto :EXIT :MediaRequest goto :EXIT :TimedOutMediaRequest goto :EXIT :ScriptCheckFailed goto :EXIT :NextExec goto :EXIT :StopSched goto :EXIT :PasswordEntry goto :EXIT :FatalBackupError goto :EXIT :EXIT and here's wake.bat: @echo off If %1==bc goto :bc If %1=="bc" goto :bc If %1==bcronin goto :bcronin If %1=="bcronin" goto :bcronin If %1==mac goto :mac If %1=="mac" goto :mac If %1==pcronin goto cronin If %1=="pcronin" goto cronin goto :exit :bc wolcmd 00e018fc63ef 192.168.0.101 255.255.255.0 goto :exit :bcronin wolcmd 000ea61e69cc 192.168.0.100 255.255.255.0 goto :exit :mac wolcmd 000A95B0553A 192.168.0.103 255.255.255.0 goto :exit cronin wolcmd 00e01899c890 192.168.0.102 255.255.255.0 :exit Wolcmd I got from: http://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/ Ok, so it is a bit tedious having to enumerate the MAC addresses of all the clients in the bat file, but I only had a few clients so it wasn't worth doing anything more clever. The only fly left in the ointment for me is that the "bc" client regularly falls back asleep DURING a backup (something I am pursuing on another thread herein).
  9. Do you have any pointers to references which describe how Windows decides the system is inactiive? Could the backupo client be changed to somehow tickle it periodically? It seems difficult to imagine that a lot of disk reading going on would not constitute activity. I'd like to understand this better. In the meantime I'll try your suggestion and schedule some other activity to take place during the interval I expect the backup to be going on (but its going to get a bit tedious to try to arrange that for all my clients), Thank you.

    Retrospect 7.0 Updates (Serial or Cumulative)

    They're separate things. One is the base product, one is the client and the last is the device-support component. You need to install all three to be totally up to date.
  11. I have Retrospect 7 Pro with 3 clients. The backup computer and all clients are Win XP Pro SP2. All clients are set to suspend after 30 minutes of inactivity. One client has a lot more data than the others, so when I do a recycle backup for it, it takes more than 30 minutes to complete. Win XP on that client decides that the PC is inactive after 30 minutes and puts it to sleep, even though there is an ongoing backup! Any ideas why? How does Windows XP define "inactivity"? Why would the Retrospect client running a backup not be seen as activity? I'd prefer not to have to change or shut off the or suspend function, if possible. It happened with v6.5 as well, so I doubt this is a version-specific behavior. Bob Cronin
  12. I want to run a batch file before kicking off a client backup (to wake the client from standby). Is this possible with Retrospect Pro 6.5?
  13. So that when the proactive backup starts on the backup computer, Retrospect doesn't steal focus from the user currently logged on.

    Start proactive backup minimized?

    Rats. Oh well, over to the suggestions forum then. Thank you.
  15. I use proactive backup to backup my network-attached PC's, but do not keep Retrospect running all the time on the PC doing the backups. The launcher nicely starts Retrospect whenever one of the proactive client's schedules becomes active. The problem is, when this happens, Retrospect starts up in a normal window (which steals focus from what I am doing at the time). Is there any way to get it to start up in a minimized (or even hidden, with perhaps only a tray icon) state?
