  1. Hi Everybody, I would definitely appreciate any and all help you have to offer. I'll try to boil down my challenge as much as I can up top and then get into more detail down below. To summarize, I'm trying to restore files and folders from my backup and the results that I'm getting are just the folders in the right places but none of the files. This is mystifying to me since I successfully did both just a few weeks ago. Here's more information... The latest Operations Log: + Retrospect Express version 7.6.111 Launched at 5/3/2014 13:50 + Executing Restore from Backup at 5/3/2014 13:57 To volume Local Disk (C:)... - 5/3/2014 13:57:25: Restoring from Backup Set WD1, Snapshot Local Disk (C:), 3/27/2014 18:13:24 Reported missing by user: "1-Backup Set WD1" 5/3/2014 13:57:45: Execution completed successfully Duration: 00:00:20 (00:00:13 idle/loading/preparing) I'm running Windows 7, 64-bit.
  2. Hi Tim, I'm just lost since the restore previously worked fine a few weeks ago and now does not. I do not believe I backed up since that successful restore. I'm starting to understand how Retrospect works. It creates a directory of backup files where each one contains the new/different information since the last backup (or something similiar to this), right? Is this what you mean by "member #1" in a directory full of these "member" files (filenames starting with "AA0000," right?)? If that's the case, I don't know how that member would have gone missing. And yes, thank you for pointing out that I posted in the Mac forum. This is the thread that Google pointed me to. I will gladly carry the conversation on in the Windows forum. I've created a new thread there: http://forums.retrospect.com/index.php?/topic/151180-folders-restore-fine-files-do-not-restore/ Thanks! -Dukefame
  3. I'm experiencing a similar problem where I make all the selections of files and folders to restore, Retrospect tells me that the "Execution Completed Successfully," and only the folder structure appears but no files were restored. Here's my setup: Windows 7, 64-bit Running Retrospect 9.0.1 Backups were made on earlier version(s) of Retrospect Here's the entry from the Operations Log: - 5/2/2014 1:42:37: Restoring from Backup Set WD1, Snapshot Local Disk (C:), 3/27/2014 18:13:24 Reported missing by user: "1-Backup Set WD1" 5/2/2014 1:42:55: Execution completed successfully Duration: 00:00:18 (00:00:08 idle/loading/preparing) 5/2/2014 1:42:55: Script "Restore from Backup" completed successfully Help, please?
