  1. Nevermind, just found it. It is now under the Preferences - Rules. You can create your own rule.
  2. Using Retrospect 16.6 for the mac and looking to only back up files that were modified after a certain date. It used to be there in previous versions. The only option that I can find is the option to back up all files after today.
  3. Sometimes, retrospect 13.5 (Mac) will act like it is retrieving the needed tape from my library. (Overland NeoSeries FlexStor II T24) It just sits there and does nothing. Status in Retrospect on the library says that it is moving, but the actual library is doing nothing. Backup server is running OS X 10.11.6. If the tape is moved to the drive (via the web admin of the library) it back ups just fine. I have run numerous test on the library and it passes.
  4. Error - Trouble Positioning" "4-Fall 2002 (Full)" (979459), error 109 (unexpected filemark or FTP end of file). Mac OS 10.4.11 Retrospect Backup 6.1.230 Retrospect Driver - Device Access version 1.0.107 HP Ultrium 2-SCSI DLT 40.0 DC, SCSI-A A few years ago, we upgraded to 6.1 and upgraded to an Exabyte Magnum 24. This was connected to an Xserve. this is our current backup solution. This older HP device was being to retrieve older backups as necessary and was connected to an older Apple Power Mac G4. It worked beautifully. That G4 died recently. So, I decided to connect the old drive to the XServe, both tape drives connect via SCSI and the SCSI card from the G4 is not compatible with any other machine that we have. I have tried many different ways of connecting to the scsi and always get the same result. I have tried numerous files and different backup sets. All the same.
  5. We had bought a new drive and the update to 6.0. I left our old tape drive on another machine running 5.0 for retrievals only of the old stuff. Well, that machine recently died and the scsi card won't fit any current machine. So I hooked up the old drive to the new machine running 6.0. But when I try to retrieve anything, I get the error 109 - unexpected end file message. Can I convert it? Or anything? This sucks to not have backward compatibility.
  6. We have an in-house ad agency and we back up nightly all of the production servers. We need to archive the information permanently because, it might be a year or two before the information is needed again. Does anyone have a good strategy to accomplish this? Right now, we are using Retrospect to backup nightly anything that has changed. We run a Mac Appleshare server with Retrospect 4.1 Thanks in advance.
