Ultgraphics posted a topic in Express, Desktop, Workgroup and Server for Pre-OS XI am a newbie with retrospec, I started a new job a few months ago and got thrown into the mess. But anyway my question is, we have Retrospec 5. The lady that usually did the back up went to the external drive and deleted EVERYTHING on it including the catalog file. They had not copied the catalog file to a safe place on the harddrive just incase this ever happened. I have tried everything to restore this file on the external hard drive. It keeps asking for a backup disk, I am clueless to what this is or where to get it? We have a Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 2.0 for our external hard drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
