    Retrospect 7.7 just closes

    Just FYI, I have Retrospect where it can be used. I discovered that it has something to do with the Proactive Backup - which maybe should've been obvious to me from my previous details. We only have one proactive backup set up. All of the rest are scheduled. When I changed the one proactive backup that was setup & told it to not execute for the next two months, Retrospect didn't close when I told it to resume executions.
  2. Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition SP 2 Retrospect Multi Server Version 7.7.208 (32-bit) Driver Update and Hot Fix, version 7.7.1.102 I have been running this version for a while now without anything abnormal happening. Today there was a problem with a destination NAS. The NAS couldn't be contacted so Retrospect was asking for the password to connect to it. Retrospect then crashed & closed. I had to restart the NAS & it came up normally. But now every time I start Retrospect, as soon as I start the Proactive backup, the Retrospect window just closes with no errors or warnings. When I look at the Events tab in Retrospect, this is what I see (I have to tell it to not start Proactive Backup in order to be able to stay in Retrospect). At the time that I opened Retrospect it gives a message in the category of Engine. The message says "Execution terminated unexpectedly, possibly due to a power failure or system crash." I know that is a generic message Retrospect gives that can apply to a lot of things. Then it has another message in the category Engine that says "+ Retrospect version 7.7.208 Launched at 3/22/2010 3:13PM in user account." If I choose to start the Proactive Backup, then it will show that event also. When I look in the Windows Application Event Viewer, I get the following event from when I started Retrospect: Event Type: Information Event Source: Retrospect Event Category: None Event ID: 2 Date: 3/22/2010 Time: 3:13:56 PM User: FASSERVERBLADE3\Administrator Computer: FASSERVERBLADE3 Description: The description for Event ID ( 2 ) in Source ( Retrospect ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: + Retrospect version 7.7.208 Launched at 3/22/2010 3:13 PM in user account . The following message appears in the Microsoft Application Event Viewer when I start Proactive Backup: Event Type: Information Event Source: Retrospect Event Category: None Event ID: 2 Date: 3/22/2010 Time: 3:24:50 PM User: FASSERVERBLADE3\Administrator Computer: FASSERVERBLADE3 Description: The description for Event ID ( 2 ) in Source ( Retrospect ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Proactive Backup started. Does anybody have any thoughts on this? I have restarted the server a couple of times.
  3. I am wanting to duplicate data from one network storage device to another network storage device. The original device has the data files for Retrospect backup sets (I am running Retrospect 7.5 Multi-Server). When I set up the duplicate, Retrospect will not choose the backup set data files. There are some other files on the device that do duplicate. Is there a reason that I cannot choose these files? I have not found any info anywhere that says that Retrospect will not duplicate these .rdb files.
