  1. Thanks for the information, David. I have a pretty simple setup, backing up my own iMac and occasionally my second laptop or my wife's MacBook Pro. Knowing that the media set format is the same, is a great relief, but what about the catalog files? Will they need to be converted or rebuilt?
  2. I use Retrospect to backup one Mac where the client is installed to another where the Engine is installed. Typically, the Mac running the Engine is sleeping. In this case, I noticed in Activity monitor on the client that retroclient is sending ~20 and receiving ~20 packets every two seconds, adding up to over 120MB being sent...nowhere! Is this normal? And who is sending packets back?

    Blu-ray drives?

    For quite some time that page has contained the row: Product name -- Manufacturers -- Interfaces -- Media Types -- Mac Panasonic SW-5582 -- Panasonic -- ATAPI -- Blu-ray -- In Process I'd love to know a little more about "In process"

    Blu-ray drives?

    Archival, I want something that will last years, won't get damaged if lightning strikes, and isn't directly subject to mechanical failure.
  5. Is anyone successfully using the Panasonic SW-5582 or other Blu-ray drives for Retrospect?
  6. Interesting. I had R9 fully updated and then upgraded OS X from Lion to Mountain Lion 10.8.1 and it all worked fine. Later when I upgraded to 8.2, the engine wouldn't see optical drives. I looked at the .ini file and optical support was still enabled (=0). I disabled it, started the engine and then stopped it. I re-enabled optical support, started the engine again, and it's verifying a backup as I type.
