    can't read, error -1004 (Database Backup/Restore error)

    I tried that. Coincidently, I purchased a year of tech support from Dantz and THAT guy couldnt figure it out. I an getting another error in EV when I try to do an automated backup using Enterprise Manager. Do you think they might be related? SQL Server Scheduled Job 'DB Backup Job for DB Maintenance Plan 'DB Maintenance Plan1'' (0xAE93FC57F4BBB24EAC6F90AD165B993F) - Status: Failed - Invoked on: 2004-11-19 02:00:01 - Message: The job failed.

    Script Not Running Automatically

    I have a script that is supposed to run at 12:00am each weekday. I have noticed that the script will not run on its own. Once I go into the Retrospect program, the script starts. What have I done wrong? Scott T.

    Running out fo room on tape

    Thank you. I didnt want to do that because the backup take so long, but I would imagine that since I have Open File Backup it could run during the day.
  4. I have Retrospect V6 Single Server running on NT4 and have a Exabyte VXA tape drive with 107m tapes. I created a backup set for every day of the week and named my tapes acordingly. I am finding out that the first backup did everything. For example: Monday I backed up everything then used the same tape for next Monday and the Monday after that. Now it is telling me that I have no more room on the tape. How do I keep this from happening? Scott Thompson

    Backup Takes Long Time

    They are P4 1.3 GHz. The devices are on different buses. I had the software compression turned off. I dont know if the hardware is doing it, though.

    It is actually a PC running NT 4.0 with dual P4s and 512 DDR RAM.

    Backup Takes Long Time

    That was the file backup set. There is a difference of about 25MB/min.

    Backup Takes Long Time

    how long does it take to "prepare". It seems to be sitting there a while.

    Backup Takes Long Time

    I am using a Exabyte VXA IDE drive. It seems to get about 25MB/min and that to me seems somewhat slow.

    Backup Takes Long Time

    Hello All, It seems that my backup is taking longer than it should I start the backup of my partitioned hard drive at 12:30 am and it takes about 8 hours. I do not have any software compression running and the total size of the drive is 13.75 GB. Should it take this long to run? Scott Thompson
