    When Sh**t happens

    OK. So I have a Mac server with Mavs, Retro 10 doing daily bckps to a thunderbolt HDD, and a LTO5 storageloader. As you suggested Disk->Disk->Tape. So Tape will be backup of the backup of initial disk, right? On tapes will be the RDB files from the retrospect backups that I did earlier from initial working disk.

  4. Is it possible to edit rules? My goal is to remove another folder from the source script.

    So I'll have Archiving on LTO, but need daily bkps on a DAS (preferably) by Thunderbolt rackmount. Can't find nothing besides Promise...

    When Sh**t happens

    I have a question regarding this feature. If I copy a backup and try to "continue" this backup on the final destination (on copy) Retrospect starts a new full backup. It doesn't compare contents. Is this meant to be this way?

    Hello Lennart, useful as always But what media type do you suggest? I don't have the Tape drive, and studying what to do ASAP.
  12. Hello, are you working on a new version with the per app vpn , feature? This is a cool feature, because outside my network i can use my work vpn on the fly.
  13. Is it possible to limit in time old backups? I want to "auto" Recycle about a certain period (like 2 weeks/1 month or so). I can see that in windows backup it erases about 6 days older. TY

    Limit old backups

    Limit old backups

    Now I have 4% free space. I did groom manually and you are right. On a 1,3TB share only has free 32GB after groom. So what do you suggest? Last 10 backups? Create a groom policy?

    Limit old backups

    I get 32GB free... but on a 12TB disk it's almost nothing ;-)

    Limit old backups

    sorry for bring this old thread. I'm already groomng backups, but my destination disk isn't getting any free space. Any helps?
  20. I've done it! One guy added a folder to this share without the right permissions... GRRRRRR I Moved the folder to other side, and voilá!
  21. Hi, I'm running ok several backups, but this one last times started to give me problemas. When doing Scanning the CPU is about 300% and doesnt go beyond 300GB. This backup source has millions of files and usually is the one that the snapshot (even if it is a small diary backup) lasts about 5 hours. What should I Do?
  22. Yes it's simple... but check my comment: "I did that once and what i got was damaged disk, with read-only acess. I Don't risk do it again..."
  23. I'm contacting Alsoft to know specs. TY
