  1. Windows 10 "Fall update" Directory properties missing?

    Hi, Thanks for your help ... I use a Microsoft account to log in in both cases.
  2. Windows 10 "Fall update" Directory properties missing?

    Well, The odd user id permissions came back again after I had cleared them, so I'm stuck with the same error. I guess I will just have to put up with this error for now.
  3. Windows 10 "Fall update" Directory properties missing?

    Hi, It is from a duplicate script on the server. Retrospect version 10.5 I'm getting this same issue also on another Windows 10 PC running Retrospect version 12 Same folder on both machines. Seems the Cortana update has created a weird folder that has some odd link between the folders: "LocalState" and "LocalState.." in the parent folder: C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy On further investigation, it had some odd user in the security settings, so I have removed that odd user id from the security properties and will see what happens on the next duplication run ... Thanks for your interest. I'll get back with any further updates ...
  4. Hi, Since the Feature Update to Windows the other week ... I'm getting this error: 1/11/2017 10:20:36 AM: Creating folders 1/11/2017 10:22:33 AM: Finished creating 55,697 folders 1/11/2017 10:22:34 AM: Copying properties for 55,697 folders File "C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\": can't read security information, error -1101 (file/directory not found) 1/11/2017 10:27:09 AM: Finished copying properties for 55,697 folders and 0 files 1/11/2017 10:27:12 AM: Copying properties for 55,697 folders Folder "C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\": no security information, error -1 (unknown) 1/11/2017 10:32:11 AM: Finished copying properties for 55,697 folders 1/11/2017 10:32:15 AM: 28 execution errors Completed: 7687 files, 8.0 GB Performance: 382.9 MB/minute Duration: 00:31:45 (00:10:30 idle/loading/preparing) Anyone else? Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.
  5. Just that although there would be a "duplicate file", the older file would be removed when the groom was run. In my opinion, I would rather have a backup of files that are currently on my machine, since renaming one in effect does create a "new" file. I think it would be confusing and somewhat difficult to implement the feature you are suggesting. Each to their own.
  6. In my opinion, scheduling more frequent groom jobs would be better than having this proposed feature.
  7. How to list snapshot contents as a text file

    Hi jhg, I don't know of a way to list the snapshot as text, but was wondering if the Reports / Session Contents would be a way to compare what was backed up? If you highlight a Session Content ... then you can select File ... Export ... out to a text file. The result will be a pretty "ugly" text file however ...
  8. Version 10 fails to connect when checking for updates.

    The good news ... Version 10.5 for Windows, released the other day has now fixed the check for updates function. (After doing a manual download to update - obviously)
  9. This is due to the manufacture's method of calculating what 500 GB means, vs how a computer sees that "500 GB" ... As explained here: http://www.tweakandtrick.com/2013/07/lost-storage-space.html
  10. Retrospect 7.6.111 not using all available space

    Hi Alphatucana, Good to hear that you found the problem and solved it.
  11. I upgraded straight to 10 and the upgrade went very well, all my scripts were retained and things went along as normal. However, my setup is a workstation only, so you'd need some other users to comment about clients, sorry that I can't help there.
  12. Hi Retro1, I upgraded from 8.5 to 10 - the claimed performance improvements were not really applicable to my setup, so I can't comment on whether or not the performance is as fast as they say. For my setup, the speed is about the same as it was in 8.5 I have seen others posting that they do indeed see performance gains, so it depends on how your system is set up. Version 10 has been very stable so far however. The main reason I upgraded was to solve the issue with EFI ASR Writer failed with "error -1001 (Windows: unknown error)" - which was actually fixed in Version 9.5, but I didn't get around to updating to that version.
  13. Retrospect 7.6.111 not using all available space

    Hi Alphatucana, I'm a little confused by you having 2 backup sets that each want to use 99% of the available disk? Shouldn't they need to be set at 49% to be able to both fit into the space? However ... I was wondering if the message is really hiding some other issue? Is the catalog for that set damaged perhaps and that's why the grooming is failing? Anything in the log that gives more detail? Any other backup sets that may have been "forgotten" by Retrospect but have not been manually deleted on that destination drive? p.s. If you attempt to run a manual "Groom" on that set, does it give more clues as to the problem it is having?
  14. Version 10 fails to connect when checking for updates.

    Just to advise, that the latest version (Retrospect for Windows still has the problem.

    Thanks for that info Lennart. At least it's good to know that it does not affect only me ... safety in numbers.
