    Retrospect 16 released

    We have released Retrospect 16 for Macintosh and Windows. Details are found at: https://www.retrospect.com/en/products/latest?locale=en You can view your upgrade options at http://www.retrospect.com/upgrade This release does require new license codes for all existing customers.
  3. My own update to this: This is a cosmetic issue fixed in Retrospect 15.6. You can upgrade at http://www.retrospect.com/upgrade or you can download a patch for older versions of Retrospect at https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/kb/deferred_date_on_mac. The patch is free. If you find the issue is not cosmetic for you, please contact support directly because you are experiencing a totally different issue.
  4. Please see https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/kb/deferred_date_on_mac
  5. We have released a patch that users of Retrospect 14 and earlier can use if backups incorrectly show a deferred status. https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/kb/deferred_date_on_mac You will install a new Retrospect console and continue to use your earlier Retrospect Engine. This fixes the issue without purchasing an upgrade.
  6. A bug exists in all older Macintosh versions of Retrospect that will make scripts appear deferred. This is a cosmetic only bug that is fixed in 15.6.1. No backups should fail to run because of this issue. You can either ignore the defer warnings or you can upgrade to 15.6.1 and the issue will not appear. http://www.retrospect.com/upgrade or http://www.retrospect.com/updates

    data.appclicks.com DNS

    AppClicks was a tool used by Retrospect to collect anonymous configuration data. That tool no longer exists. You will want to turn off the option in preferences to "Help improve Retrospect...." The next release will no longer try to connect to App Clicks.
  9. Fast Catalog Rebuild is turned on by default with all Disk Backup Sets. We don't have an option to turn it off/on because it is always enabled. Fast catalog rebuild was not removed from the product.

    Retrospect 15.5 Released

    We have released the new Retrospect 15.5 version, which is a free update to all users of Retrospect 15. You can view the Macintosh and Windows release notes at: https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/documentation
  11. Wha is an "august Documentation Committee"? Sounds like fake news, if you ask me.
  12. If you have access to the .rdb files, then you can perform a catalog rebuild from that media and then perform a restore.
  13. Please upgrade to 15.1.1 to fix this issue.
  14. To be clear, tapes do not have .rdb files. The screenshot shows .rbc files, which are catalog files. Catalog files are indexes of backup data. To access the actual backups you need access to the original backup media. If you were writing to disk, then you should have disks with .rdb data files. To rebuild the catalog from .rdb files or from a tape, you can start with these directions: After the catalog rebuild from the original backup media, you can attempt a restore.
