  1. Slightly more clarity on this, I think: According to this: So the "EFI System partition" sounds like it's replaced the System Reserved Partition on modern systems. That's fortunate, as this is the way it came delivered from Dell: the only thing I've done is partition the user area (C: and E: in the image.) > Could you drag the divider down to show all volumes and repost the screenshot? There are a bunch of other drives but excepting C and E:, I think the image shows everything of interest, no? > Veeam has a decent article on troubleshooting this, and you should be able to get more information by looking for VSS errors in the application event log. I also notice you are using BitLocker -- I believe that means you must store shadow copies on their originating volume. That's interesting, many thanks.

  2. Hi David -- Thanks for that. My system doesn't show a "System reserved" partition though. I'm guessing that's a W7 thing, maybe? I see something rather more complicated:
  3. Can't use Open File Backup option for x15 os (C:), error -3045 (there is insufficient storage space to complete the operation) [*] VssWSnapVolume: DoSnapshotSet failed, winerr -2147212513, error -3045 The advice in the FAQS for this error are for Windows 7. They don't seem to relate to W10 and don't appear to have been updated anywhere. Anyone know how to fix this? C has plenty of free space so I assume it's not that at fault. Google doesn't suggest anything for that function call(?) and winerr. ian
  4. I'm moving my backup files from separate hard drives to a NAS server. In order to recatalog successfully it seems I have to consolidate all the .rdb files into the first directory, eg name/1-name otherwise it files to find the files in 2-name, etc. This has worked fine up to now, apart from one backup where recataloging fails to recognise the files from 2-name and 3-name now in 1-name. reporting a list a missing data files for the Backup set: How do I fix this problem please?

    Missing members terminate backup set recatalog

    True. A few years back it was much better, which added value to the product. Unresolved issues such as this translate directly into loss of future sales.

    Selectors don't work very well

    Selectors *do* work more or less, but it helps to not make them too complicated. Or if you need complicated to separate them into separate selectors and then combine then in another. If you could give some more information about what you've got and why you think it's not working maybe someone copuld help you. i

    Missing members terminate backup set recatalog

    Well, this sucks. Support on this forum used to be really good. What happened? i

    Anyone from support out there who'd like to comment on this??? i
  9. I have several backup sets spanned over two disks. The second of these disks developed a fault but i was able to copy to a another disk almost everything except a few members. However attempting to rebuild the catlog so that Retrospect knows that some stuff it thought was backed up actually isn't I find that Retrospect ignores all members after the first missing member. Is there any way to get Retrospect to cope more gracefully with missing members? i (Retrospect v7.7)

    Sparse and "barely-changed" large file support?

    That's great news, and a real reason to upgrade. Thanks for the update. ian ...

    Error -1102 after repartition/relabel

    Hi Nate If I do that will it still do incremental backups? Or will the next backup be the full works, duplicating everything it already has on the backup volume? Or the later is there anyway to patch it to let it know its really the same disk? Thanks, Ian ...

    Error -1102 after repartition/relabel

    I recently repartitioned and relabeled my hard drive and now get: Can't access volume Drive C (C:), error -1102 (drive missing/unavailable) when I try to run a backup. I tried relabeling C: back to "Drive C", but the error persists. How do I persuade Retrospect (6.5) that this new C: is really the same C: it knows and loves? Ian ...

    network places backup problems

    Thanks goawest, this should be put in a sticky, or documented somewhere. I've just spent ages trying to figure out what that "Can't grant necessary user privileges" was trying to tell me. In summary folks: 1. Go to System Properties, select tab Computer Name, and copy the Full Computer Name into the Log on to field. 2. Go to Computer Management, select Local Users and Groups, then Users and copy the appropriate Name (*not* Full name, if different) to the User field. (Note that its the Full Name that displays on the top of the start menu and in the Control Panel User Accounts, so check this one if you're having problems). 3. Enter the password.
