  1. Hi all, Just upgrade from R10 to R11. W10 ADK loaded but Retrospect fails with "Disaster Recovery preparation completed with errors" and the log file says "Can't continue execution, error 0 (unknown). Any one any ideas? Pete

    Retrospect 11 - Cannot Create Recovery Disc

    Towards the end. It appeared to "do" the first 10 files and then fail whilst trying to do the next two. I'll try my ISO out and report back.

    Retrospect 11 - Cannot Create Recovery Disc

    It worked on my laptop! Would it be that my Desktop runs off an SSD? Pete

    Retrospect 11 - Cannot Create Recovery Disc

    Just tried again and still no luck. Saving the ISO file fails on Error 0 and creating a bootable USB stick says it has successfully completed but there is nothing on the stick. I'll try my laptop and see if that does it where my desktop fails. Thanks for your help. Pete

    What is ASM?

    Annual Support and Maintenance - It's one of the Retrospect Add Ons. Never had it myself but YMMV. Pete

    Version 7.7 - Writer "ASR Writer" backup failed

    Hi all, Took the plunge back in November and did a clean install of Windows 7 (previous install had been over Vista (I think)). Anyway no error messages!! Pete
  7. Just upgraded from Retro Pro 7.6 to 7.7 on Windows 7 Home Premium. Pro 7.6 ran without any problems, Pro 7.7 gives the error: Writer "ASR Writer" backup failed, error -1017 (insufficient permission) I'm running Pro 7.7 as administrator. Anyone any thoughts? Peter

    Disaster Recovery - Lessons Learnt

    Hi all, Can a Moderator move these posts to the Professional forum? An oops on my original posting. Thanks Pete
  9. Hi all, My Windows 7 laptop went in to BSOD and the hard disk made a chattering noise... dead laptop. Bought new hard disk and had system working in a couple of hours. Lessons learnt: 1. Keep a copy of you "catalog" with your Retrospect back-up files. 2. Do not plug-in your back-up disk (mine connected by USB) until you have booted with your Retropect ISO disk and Retrospect is active. If you start with the back-up disk plugged-in it will take C: drive letter which you want for your replacement hard disk. 3. First thing to do is to partition your new hard disk. 4. Retrospect will appear to have stopped working towards the end of the restore. Have patience. I didn't and had to repeat the entire process!! 5. My restore was at 1GB/min (75GB in just over an hour), ymmv. 6. When the system is restored and you start your machine as usual go into Retrospect and point any scripts at the new hard drive. A very happy camper. Pete

    Disaster Recovery - Lessons Learnt

    Hi all, Just a quick update to the above. 7. If you are using Ready Boost on a laptop, remember to remove the memory card when restoring using the Retrospect ISO disk otherwise you will get an error message. Pete
