  1. Thanks Scillonian, you're absolutely right! How stupid of me. Thanks so much for your help Cheers, Stu
  2. hi there - sorry if this is in the wrong place, I couldn't find an area for Retrospect 5. I'm having trouble searching and retrieving tiff or PSD files. When I search for a particular folder it only shows up the Indesign or Quark files in that folder and doesn't show tiffs, jpegs or PSD files. BUT when i search for a particular tiff file name that's in the same folder - it shows it's there. Can anyone help? Thank you
  3. Hi all - does anyone have any more thoughts on solving this? Thanks, Stu
  4. Thank you. What I wanted to be able to do is search for a folder (Matt Smith) and then see everything within that folder. At the moment it's not showing me anything but the Indesign files within that folder. And yet when I search for an image by name it's showing it is within that folder
  5. Hi David - see screen photos attached. If I search for files and folders for PEACOCK0175A called 'Matt Smith' I don't get to see any tif, jpeg or psd files in that folder, it only shows indesign files. If I then search for a specific image name in the same folder it shows up Cheers, Stu
  6. Thanks so much David, i’ll try it again tomorrow and make a note of each step. Cheers
  7. Thanks Twickland and thank you David! All working now. I went to... Restore Search For Files And Folders More Open and then added each tape from the Backups Folder - each tape still contained all the info of what was on it Fantastic! Thanks again for all your help guys
  8. hi there - I wonder if anyone can help me. I had an error come up on Retropspect startup saying that it couldn't open the Retro.Config (5.0) file. I read on here to remove it from the library and so did that Now it starts up OK but when I go onto 'Restore' and Search for Files and Folders' it only shows one tape title and yet there should be about 350. There is an option to click 'More' which gives a 'Rebuild' option but I'm not sure what to do. Thanks for any help Cheers, Stu
  9. Ah I seeeeeee. Yes the drive I have doesn't work on anything more up to date than a G4. I'll read through the link you very kindly supplied above and see if I can get that to work. Thanks again for your help David. Stu
  10. Thanks David - there is no cloak and dagger involved. I worked for a company (Peacock) that went into voluntary liquidation and with my boss's consent was given all the backup tapes to continue the work with the same clients. I design album covers and often need to retrieve old files from this system if the album is going to be re-released or released on a different format (vinyl, deluxe CD etc). I now have a different system for back-up but anything pre 2015 is on these tapes. I'm running OSX 10.3.9 on a separate Mac but I work on something much more up to date. I can see the individual tapes listed but what i had previously was all the contents of all of those tapes on one file. Thanks again for your help. Cheers
  11. Hi all - firstly, thank you so much David and Twickland for helping me with this. I can't locate a complete backup of all the tapes (each tape is named Peacock XX on the attached jpegs) as it seems a safety copy was not made regularly (I wasn't in control of backing up so won't take the blame for that one). I can see and search the individual tapes but can only seem to select one at a time. Before I had this issue I could search a group of tapes in one go so is there a way to make a new catalog from this? Thank you.
  12. Thank you Twickland - I'll look into it. I'm running this on an old G3 Mac but can't see anything called catalogue under finder
  13. Thanks David - I'm using version 5.1. I'll have a look
  14. Thanks so much Twickland, i'll give that a try
  15. hi there - can anyone tell me how to view the entire contents of a tape? I only know who to search for files by name Thanks
  16. That worked perfectly! You're an absolute star Lennart Thanks so much, Chunky
  17. Hi there, I wonder if anyone can help me. I'm trying to retrieve some files from a very old version of Retrospect Backup (Version 5.1.167) I have a tape with work on it and then a duplicate of that tape. Using the RESTORE feature, 0162A doesn't show any data but 0162 does (see photo) However, I only have tape 0162A. Is there any way to rename the tape or any other way to retrieve the work? Thanks in advance Chunky
  18. Hi Lennart - I've recreated it from the tape - it's gone through all the files and now come up... Are there any more members in this backup set? The disk, tape, or disc would be named "2-PEACOCK0162A" if i hit yes will it still recognise the tape as it has a different name? Thanks, Chunky
  19. Thank you so much Lennart, I'll give that a try
