thanks for your help.
Yes. The immediate backup works okay. (I didn't realise this til you mentioned that it probably would and tested it, so thanks for that.)
And going to the link you recommend ("Always run retrospect as specified user) I discover that indeed I don't have that section completed.
However I'm not sure how to select user, password, and domain_name correctly.
For the username I've tried using just the name Dan (arbitrarily), and then I tried the same name as in my windows Admin user account name. For the password I've tried inventing a unique password, I've tried creating a password for my windows admin user account and then using the same password in the retrospect window, and I've tried using the password that the apple airport software requested that I allocate to the destination drive when I set it up. For the domain name I've tried the name of the drive in several ways "timecapsule", "timecapsule (10.0.0.4)", and i've tried Z:\ and Z:\Retrospect. In my computer next to the Z-drive the full text is
timecapsule on 'timecapsule (10.0.0.4)'
It tried putting that in but it won't fit in the space provided.
When I try doing it without having created a password in my windows admin user account the message I get when it fails is:
â€œThe provided login info is invalidâ€
When I great a password in my windows admin user account and use the same one in the retrospect security preferences, the message I get when it fails is:
â€œCanâ€™t grant necessary user privilegesâ€
There's no information on that link explaining how to enter username, password, and domain_name or what limitations there are.
Can you help further?
All the best,
