Files do not compare in Server, SBS and Multi Server Posted July 23, 2010 · Report reply I had one JPG file that had no problems running Retrospect Single Server v6.5. After upgrading to v7.5 I started getting the "File did not compare error". A week ago I installed v7.6 and the error remains.I made a copy of the file and the copy also fails to verify. I resaved the file and the newer version verifies OK. I have no problem ditching the original (which did not compare) but I am uneasy as this may still come up with other files. The verification method I use is the default. Fast forward two years. As my last post indicates, resaving the 2 files eliminated the "file didn't compare" errors. Now I started getting the same error on 2 different JPG files. These are files that have been backed up without any problems for about 8 months and now, all of a sudden, I get the "files didn't compare" errors. The files have not been changed ever since they were placed on the server. OS: Windows Server 2000 Retrospect: Retrospect Backup Single Server v7.6.111. Verification Method: Default. I can copy the files to other locations without any error messages from Windows.
