  1. I was having the same problem on our server and tracked it down to a lack of available physical memory, which resides is real, no paged memory. This is shared between the file cache, the OS kernal, which NT has a limit of 196 MB and Win 2000 of 340MB. I had our servers configured as "File Servers", which enables a large file cache (HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache=1. Using the MSD Memory tab or Task Manager Performance Tab, which shows the memory, I noticed when Retrospect Server got the error the available Physical Memory was almost 0 (5K or so) and my File Cache was about 3/4 of my Physical Memory. This mainly occurred when backing up large client systems (14 GB or more). Changing this registry entry to =0 to use regular file cache settings (or setting your Server optimization for balanced or minimize memory), this seems to limit the file cache to 1/4 Physical memory and leaves over 1/2 free whenever Retrospect is running, which eliminated this error!
  2. I am testing Retrospect Professional 6 (We are testing it to upgrade from 5.15 to 6.0. I removed 5.15 client before installing 6). I am backing up to a network drive, and I have tried setting the backup volume as a mounted drive (X:\backup\backupfile.rbf) and as a UNC (\\server\drive\backup\backupfile.rbf) and neither way works. I have 3 local disks (C: D: E:) which I am trying to backup. The C: disk always works, and then it scans the D:, and as soon as it start the actual backup of D: I get the asset error (see below). Looking at the assert_log.utx file, it lists the problem with PCVLDRVR.DLL with OutlookExec::Initialize and Outlook::Start. I have Outlook 2000, and I have tried running Retrospect both with Outlook running and also terminated (the log below was with Outlook not running) and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

  3. We are a 5.15 Workgroup user, considering the move to 6.0, just if it will solve the Winerr 1450 problem (this is a Windows resource problem which we see on two of our clients which have backup files over 15 GB). Looking on the 5.x Workgroup form it looks like 5.5 and 5.6 versions also had this problem, but I haven't seen a listing here. Does anyone have the 6.0 Server backup, and backup clients to hard disk and the .RBF file is over 15 GB for the client?

    Which version do I need?

    I agree that their new licensing system sucks! We are a small software developer (5 full time developers) but have 2 servers (1 production, 1 test). The Workgroup pricing in 5.x worked fine for us, but now we need to upgrade to the MultiServer backup to backup up the server machines, just because of the OS they have. Their previous licensing system was much more fair and larger firms, with more backup needs, paid more. I guess with their current system, even if you were a single developer with a Windows 2000 Advanced server machine (which you need for testing), you would pay the same price as a 100 user office with a single server.
