  1. Hi, I uninstalled the 7.7 client on Linux and then installed back, added the password. But I lost connectivity from the Retrospect Desktop server, it says it can not find the client. If I try to add a new client, the same client appears in grey. If I click add, nothing happens. If I probe by IP, it shows the client. I don't want to delete the client and edit all target backup jobs. Is there a way to re-add the client? Thanks Oliver

    E-mail Notification Not Working in 8.1

    Can 8.1 version sent email when authentication is not required? Like when using a local mailserver? Thanks
  3. Try synching the clock, using the properties window of the client http://forums.retrospect.com/index.php?/topic/18406-script-incomplete-unknown-error/page__view__findpost__p__248170
  4. I solved this by going to the client properties and click on "Sync clock", the time difference was negative and when clicking in the Volumes tab, an error ocurred.
  5. Hi, it is posible to avoid sending emails when Retrospect startup or exit? Examples: Date: 7/5/2010 + Retrospect version 7.7.325 Automatically launched at 7/5/2010 11:00 p.m. in user account PC\user Date: 7/5/2010 Exit at 7/5/2010 02:07 p.m. Thanks Oliver
  6. Hi, I have a Windows XP running Retrospect 7.7 for Windows. Some user in that PC changed the windows date to may, so retrospect run a few times and then the Windows date was reversed to the current date. The problem is that all backups jobs does not run, because Retrospect think we are in the past. How can I solve this problem? - Editing the schedule of every backup job? - Forgoting snapshots of every backup set? Many thanks Oliver
  7. Editing the backup jobs solved the issue. I edited every schedule for every backup job Thanks Oliver
  8. Hi Robin, thanks for the reply. Oh no, well, will do the hard work. I have like 15 backup jobs, I think I can manage it. BTW, the date used for the incremental backup is taken from the file itself right? I mean, the file will be backed up, right? Will edit the jobs and then report back Regards, Oliver
  9. Hi Robin, it says it will run next in may-2010 I edited one backup job and changed the schedule to run today, so that backup job its ok. But all the others are not running since all are schedulled to run in may Thanks, Oliver

    Why is the data backed up again?

    Viewing the evidence, I asume is a bug in the client. Is there a way to report it to EMC o Iomega? Oliver

    Why is the data backed up again?

    I think the problem is in the client. I just had to move a Retrospect installation in another client, Windows XP backing up in an external USB HD. I backup up the same data via SMB and local and it worked as expected. Will test backup up a client with the unchanged data on that client to confirm it. What I mean is: - the same data backed up using another client, de-duplication does not work - the same data backup up using SMB or local, de-duplication does work. HTH Oliver
  12. Thanks for the comments, I'm just disappointed. I was thinking that backing up the same file, to the same backup set but from different sources will trigger the de-duplication feature as spected. Is there any solution? Or should I buy a new big backup media to solve the issue?
  13. Hi, I have 140GB of data on Win2k3 on local disk D: I backup to a NAS storage. Later, Installed Win2k8, copied all data to the other server. Installed retrospect client on Win2k8, modified the backup job in Win2k3 and just added the win2k8 client as another source for the backup job. The backup job is the same in the win2k3 server, just added the new source. I was thinking that Retrospect will look a the file in the win2k8 client, compare with the file that is already in the backup set and do not copy the file again since it is the same file. So, here is my problem, how does de-duplication exactly work? Should Retrospect compare the file in the backup set with the file in the source? And then come to the conclusion that is the same file? Any help is welcome Regards, Oliver

    Why is the data backed up again?

    Well, this is just too bad Personally my first disappointment with retrospect so far, too good to be true I guess

    Why is the data backed up again?

    What do you mean by meta data? The meta data in NTFS? Should Retrospect compare the entire file, like doing md5 or something? Thanks Oliver
  16. Hi, I use Retrospect Profesional in a Windows XP Machine. I backup the WinXP Machine and two other notebooks. What I need is to Retrospect always run, even is there is a different user using the computer. I configured Retrospect using the Administrator account and configured the service to run as Administrator. The problem I get that the backup does not start until the Administrator is logged in. If no user is logged in, or if another user is logged in, Retrospect does not run. How can use a Windows XP machine as a "Unatended Backup server"? Many thanks Oliver
  17. I had marked the option to run Retrospect in a terminal session. Since I have Windows XP, I had to un-check that option in Preferences -> Login as HTH Oliver
  18. Hi, when I run Retrospect Activity Monitor, a popup window appears and says: retromonitor.exe - Application Error The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application. I running Retrospect Profesional 7.6 on Windows XP SP3 Thanks Oliver

    Retrospect fogetting network password

    Maybe this solves it: http://kb.dantz.com/display/2n/articleDirect/index.asp?aid=9637&r=0.5306665 It should be in the FAQ HTH Oliver
  22. It would be nice to add a "Description" to every backup script. Right now I use long backup scripts in order to differentiate one form another. The idea is to be able to describe what the Backup script does or what you want to accomplish with it. Many thanks! Oliver

    Archive an encrypted disk Backup Set to Tape

    Many Thanks Mayoff, will create then 3 Tape Backup Set, each with the corresponding password. Oliver
  24. Hi, I use an USB external disk for backup to disk. The usb disk Backup Set are encrypted. I have 3 disk Backup set, each with different passwords. Now I want to archive/copy/transfer snapshots from those disk Backup Set to a Tape Backup Set while maintaining each different disk Backup Set password. Should I create 3 Tape Backup sets each encrypted with the corresponding disk Backup set password? Or can I use only 1 Tap Backup Set and the encripted disk Backup set will be transfered in an encrypted form to the tape backup set? Sorry for the long post and any help is welcomed! Regards, Oliver
  25. My Whishlst, It would be nice to have this in the notifications emails: - log attached, start date, end date, etc - attach complete log, or only the log details (20 lines in common backup) - add the Backup Job name in the Subject of the email Many thanks, great software! Oliver
