  1. My configuration: Retrospect Single Server 7.7.562 Windows XP SP3 with Creative SB X-Fi sound card. My problem: Each morning when Retrospect finishes its backup, it changes the Creative SB card device from under "Sound, Video and game controllers" to under "System Device". As a result, my sound output malfunctions. To correct this problem, each morning I have to "update driver" for the creative card so that it falls under "sound controller" again and needs reboot. Can anyone help? Thanks.
  2. Finally I get the ubuntu client up and running after upgrading the windows single server version to 7.7 and followed the other procedures in this forum to compile an AMD64 Debian version for the client. However, I found the following problem with the Ubuntu client: When I use Retrospect on WinXP to duplicate a file or a folder with Chinese filename to Ubuntu, the filename/folder name is corrupted by "invalid encoding". No such filename encoding problem occurs when I use Retrospect to duplicate file from WinXP to WinXP or use the WinXP Explorer to copy the file from WinXP to Ubuntu.
  3. Hi I am using ver7.0.110 linux client and I have the following problem: I use retrospect server to duplicate a folder from XP to Ubuntu. Although I have set the destination folder permission to a particular user, all the permissions of the duplicated files inside the destination folder are set to root. How can I change the default permissions to a particular user instead of root (since I need to share these files and let others modify them).
  4.

    help! Retrospect running forever

    Additional information: My "My Document" folder is also on this external USB. I don't know whether it is the problem of "My Document" or the Catalogues.

    I have finally isolated the source of the problem. I stored my catalogue files in an external USB hard disk which I recently reformated. After the reformat, I loaded back the original catalogue files into this USB hard disk. It seems that Retrospect is not happy about this. Any idea how to handle this? Thanks.

    I have disabled the antivirus SW but the result is still the same. There is no point in trying the latest version because even if it works, I will not buy a new version. There is only 2 windows PC left in my premises. Unless Retrospect has 64 bit linux version, I would not invest any further money in it.

    All these happens on file backup sets on hard disk. I have now tried to backup the file to another file backup set on another hard disk but the same happens.

    Do you mean a new backup set? I have already done that above.

    help! Retrospect running forever

    When I use a new backup set, more or less the same thing happens except this time Retrospect does not stops at "building snapshot" and "tracking.log" but instead stops at "copying.(hard disk name)..." I am backup up Windows XP SP2 workstation. Local backup. I have already re-catalogue the existing file backup set and restored the hard disk (non-operating system partition) by copying it over offline but no improvement.
  12. Single Server ver 7.0.328 Suddenly Retrospect is taking forever to complete its backup. Even if I am backing up a single file, it will stop at "building snapshot" with the file always showing "tracking.log" and it runs forever. Please HELP.............................! Thanks.
