    Script & Catalolg loss

    Okay, I found Retrospect is asking me to re-type my license code but it is too late. I already entered the license code. Now I am trying to recreate my back up clients and it is asking for a valid license code. I have unlimited clients according to Retrospect License Manager. The initial window for clients is blank. When I add one I have the 3 clients from my previous working version. I can not add more clients, and can not select to use the existing clients, nor can I remove the existing clients. PLEASE HELP this needs to be running within the next few hours.

    Script & Catalolg loss

    Hello, I was attempting to find some files from a previous back up and Retrospect died. I'm running 7.6 and the error was Retrospect failed due to a power loss or system crash. This happened twice. When it happened the second time I decided a reboot of the server would be a good idea. Upon launching Retrospect after the boot, I was prompted for license info and now all of my scripts are gone. My questions are: 1. Do these scripts live somewhere that I can import them? 2. Why would this happen? I have had no power loss, it's also on a UPS, and my system did not crash. I did elect to send the errors so if you've got them could you review? More focus on #1 as #2 is more my own curiosity. Thanks, Nathan
  3. From an earlier post, The amount of local disk space that is free on C:\ is 148.67GB. The drive itself is a 223.51GB drive.
  4. No, the disk is not heavily fragmented. I did a defrag before I started posting just in case that was the issue. I'm also now getting errors while copying data. + Normal backup using Backup at 3/11/2008 5:00 PM (Execution unit 1) To Backup Set Tuesday-... - 3/11/2008 5:00:01 PM: Copying Data (D:) on SERVER TMemory: heap 59 1,214 K virtual 11 156.5 M commit 156.5 M purgeable 0 zero K Pool:pools, users 4 20 max allowed mem 614.0 M max block size 8,192 K total mem blocks 2 16.0 M used mem blocks 1 8,192 K file count, size 0 zero K requested 70 77.8 M purgeable 0 zero K avail vm size 1,768,685,568 B TMemory::mhalloc: VirtualAlloc(144.0 M, MEM_RESERVE) failed, error 8 TMemory: heap 60 1,215 K virtual 11 156.5 M commit 156.5 M purgeable 0 zero K Pool:pools, users 4 20 max allowed mem 614.0 M max block size 8,192 K total mem blocks 2 16.0 M used mem blocks 1 8,192 K file count, size 0 zero K requested 71 77.8 M purgeable 0 zero K avail vm size 1,768,685,568 B TMemory::mhalloc: VirtualAlloc(144.0 M, MEM_RESERVE) failed, error 8 TMemory: heap 51 742 K virtual 13 202.5 M commit 202.5 M purgeable 0 zero K Pool:pools, users 3 21 max allowed mem 614.0 M max block size 8,192 K total mem blocks 3 24.0 M used mem blocks 2 16.0 M file count, size 0 zero K requested 64 123.3 M purgeable 0 zero K avail vm size 1,715,208,192 B TMemory::mhalloc: VirtualAlloc(180.0 M, MEM_RESERVE) failed, error 8 TMemory: heap 52 743 K virtual 13 202.5 M commit 202.5 M purgeable 0 zero K Pool:pools, users 3 21 max allowed mem 614.0 M max block size 8,192 K total mem blocks 3 24.0 M used mem blocks 2 16.0 M file count, size 0 zero K requested 65 123.3 M purgeable 0 zero K avail vm size 1,715,208,192 B TMemory::mhalloc: VirtualAlloc(180.0 M, MEM_RESERVE) failed, error 8 TMemory: heap 39 515 K virtual 5 205.0 M commit 205.0 M purgeable 0 zero K Pool:pools, users 1 19 max allowed mem 614.0 M max block size 8,192 K total mem blocks 1 8,192 K used mem blocks 1 8,192 K file count, size 1 8,192 K requested 44 128.7 M purgeable 0 zero K avail vm size 1,780,981,760 B TMemory::mhalloc: VirtualAlloc(197.5 M, MEM_RESERVE) failed, error 8 TMemory: heap 40 516 K virtual 5 205.0 M commit 205.0 M purgeable 0 zero K Pool:pools, users 1 19 max allowed mem 614.0 M max block size 8,192 K total mem blocks 1 8,192 K used mem blocks 1 8,192 K file count, size 1 8,192 K requested 45 128.7 M purgeable 0 zero K avail vm size 1,780,981,760 B TMemory::mhalloc: VirtualAlloc(197.5 M, MEM_RESERVE) failed, error 8 File "D:\Support\RS\RS\Fire Drill Reports NEW\Main house\B Shift\1st Quarter\2008\1.3.08B MH.doc": can't read, error -1101 (file/directory not found) 3/12/2008 7:03:18 AM: Snapshot stored, 330.1 MB 3/12/2008 7:03:53 AM: Execution completed successfully Remaining: 1 files, 345 KB Completed: 790015 files, 170.0 GB Performance: 224.3 MB/minute Duration: 14:03:53 (01:08:03 idle/loading/preparing)
  5. With media verification on the back up take 15.5 hours to complete. If I turn only folder permissions on the backup runs for more than 3 days. I did not let it complete. Is this an issue that can be addressed or is this just the nature of the beast?
  6. So the back up ran last night without a hitch. It took 13:56:49 sec to complete. I am going to turn on Media Verification and see if it will complete tonight. I will then step through the other options for NTFS permissions and try and see where it gets hung up. Thanks Mr. Mayoff for all of you time and assistance on this issue.
  7. I am going to try and shut off all of the security settings. 3 were on by default, files security for servers, folder security for servers, and folder security for workstations. I also am going to try and no verification on the files. I have been using thorough verification. They are scheduled to run every night at 5:00 PM EST. I have stopped the back up from yesterday. I will post more tomorrow with results. Is there a difference between NT server and W2k3 server? This problem started when we changed our server from an old clunky NT box to a nice speedy rack mount server with W2k3.
  8. So then should I leave it on for folders or turn them all off? Also any idea on how long the current will last? It is backing up my file server so it is kind of important to have permissions on it.
  9. So if you can not turn this off while it is running, do you have any idea how long you expect that this will continue? Does it really make sense to turn this feature off? I have not had a successful backup of my system in quite some time and would like to make sure that turning this off will fix my issues. Also since it is a feature, I would prefer to have it on. Not trying to be stubborn just trying to make sure I'm doing the right thing for the company. Thanks again for all of your help.
  10. Can I do this while the backup is still running?
  11. Yes, the file names are changing, but I do not think it is displaying file names. It looks to be displaying folder names. It is still displaying Remaining: 3 files 6,392KB 00:01:30 sec
  12. The cpu on the pc is again pegged at 99% usage. It is fulctuating between 99% and 60% and is using 579,392K of memory. Also, here is the current log file. Doesn't really show much, but thought you would like to see. + Normal backup using Backup at 3/5/2008 5:00 PM (Execution unit 1) To Backup Set Wednesday... - 3/5/2008 5:00:00 PM: Copying Data (D:) on lakenh File "D:\Support\RS\RS\FORMS\~WRL0295.tmp": can't read, error -1101 (file/directory not found) File "D:\Users\{MyUser1}\Training Forms Individual\~dividual Training Form debrief 8-3-04.doc": can't read, error -1101 (file/directory not found) File "D:\Users\{MyUser2}\Docs\dj bufon - Neverland3000.mp2": can't read, error -1101 (file/directory not found) Mayoff, any thoughts you might have on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
  13. So I have now completely removed all old snapshots as well as catalog files to attempt a fresh start and I still seem to be hung at the building snapshot. It indicates that there are 3 files remaining, 6,392KB 00:01:30 sec. It has been hung like this since I arrived this morning about 3 hours ago. It has completed 767,957 files, 170.7GB 17:57:04 sec 4.0 MB/min. Would you like me to start a new thread for this?
  14. I'm waiting for the system to respond to my clicks since Retrospect has the CPU pegged at 99%. The amount of local disk space that is free on C:\ is 148.67GB. The drive itself is a 223.51GB drive. Performance is currently running at 79.3MB/Minute. On the backup that was successful it ran at 130.1MB/Minute. On others that I have killed it was running at 493.8MB/Minute. 2/24/2008 5:25:02 AM: 289 execution errors Total performance: 121.2 MB/minute Total duration: 3 12:24:07 (3 05:28:35 idle/loading/preparing)
  15. On the backup set that completed, there is 359 files. On the other backup sets there is right around the same number of files + or - 20. There is only one session on the backup set The backup sets are scheduled to run each day and go to a different drive for each day. The drives are connected with esata cables and there is a total of 8. We only use 7 right now and the other is a backup for the other units. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
