  1. I believe my problem was that I was using a SQL database which Retrospect could not backup. Unfortunately I was not assisted by Retrospect in this instance. In fact, after so many years of frustration I am considering replacing Retrospect. I want a turn key application which does its job and does not require me to contact the company so frequently with problems as Retrospect does. This is not a user friendly product.

    Open File Backup hangs - VSS errors

    I had the same problem and the event viewer told me nothing! Did you have any success with the NPS Database backup failure or NPS VSS Writer backup failure solution? Thanks. Bruce
  3. Any suggestions? I checked and the on-line information on event error 1 has no futher information. I noticed Ed Post#102275 had the same problem.
