    So yesterday I moved the 4GB file to another location to free up space. Today the file is already over 400MB! There are no errors showing up for the client that I can find. The backups appear to be functioning. I really need to figure out what is making this file so large before it eats up my whole hard drive.

    Server 2003 Exchange 2007 sp1 Retrospect for Windows Client ver. 7.5.116 I am running VERY low on available space for the C: drive of my Exchange 2007 Server. One file in particular is taking up a ridiculous amount of space. assert_log.utx is currently 4GB in size. 1. What is this file for? 2. What can I do to reduce the size? (Delete it?) 3. Is this indicative of a problem with the Backup client that caused it to grow this large? Thank you!
  3. The services account had been hidden from the GAL. I corrected this and can now view the indvidual mailboxes. I'll confirm tonight that they are being backed up but I this will do the trick. Thank you.
  4. The log just shows the successful completion of the databases. There is no mention of the mailbox backup. When viewing volumes I see "Mailboxes" and it shows a full color icon indicating that it is licensed for backup. However, I cannot see the list of individual mailboxes in this view.
  5. Environment: Server 2003 Exchange 2007 Retrospect Multi-server 7.6.111 For the past week my individual mailboxes are no longer being backed up. I have checked the scripts and the mailboxes are selected as a source. I have removed them from the source list and readded them with no success. I have unlicenses the Exchange server and relicensed it with no success. I have deleted the scripts and recreated them with no success. At this point I am out of ideas. Suggestions? Thanks!

    Proper way to use Recycle backup

    I will give that a try this weekend and see what happens. Thank you.
  7. I am using Multi-Server version 7.6.111 on Windows Server 2003. Currently I keep a rolling 5 weeks of backups with a normal (full) backup taking place on Sunday and that backup is appended each of the subsequent 6 days. I have backup sets created for each week and each server being backed up. Backups are done to 4 eSATA disks attached to the backup server. I have been manually 'recycling' the backup set for the week about to begin and this is a pain. I tried to create a script that would recycle all of the upcoming backup sets and put it on a 'every 5 weeks' schedule for each one. However, when it launched for the first time it failed because I did not select any source volumes. I really don't know what I am supposed to select as I'm not wanting to actually back anything up with this script. I just want to recycle the backup sets before the new week's scripts begin. I want them erased essentially to make room for the new week. Any guidance is appreciated!

    Backing up ONLY the System State

    Easy enough! Thank you for the fast response!
  9. I have multi-server 7.5 installed. My current backup regimen includes doing a weekly backup of the entire disk volume and daily backups of data files/folders. I want to start daily backing up the System State. The only way I can find to backup the system state is by backing up the Windows directory or using the OS and Applications selector. However, I don't want the entire Windows directory or all of the applications in order to conserve space. How can I set a script to backup ONLY the System State? Thanks!
