  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Thanks David - I'm using version 5.1. I'll have a look
  8. 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
  9. Thanks so much Twickland, i'll give that a try
  10. 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
  11. That worked perfectly! You're an absolute star Lennart Thanks so much, Chunky
  12. 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
  13. Thank you so much Lennart, I'll give that a try
