  1. That is an entirely different problem. It seems as the user you logged in with to the NAS using AFP does not have permissions to access all files/folders. Can you open the problematic files/folders in the Finder?
  2. That is most likely a problem with the disk directory. Have you tried repairing the disk?

    Cannot recycle disk

    You go to "Activities" and stop any activity going on there, including those "Waiting for media".

    Cannot recycle disk

    It looks like there is a backup running that is waiting for media. If the media set is busy, you can't recycle it. By the way, you could set up grooming instead. That means the oldest backups are "groomed" out, making more space available. Don't forget to schedule a groom script. Once a week is what I use.
  5. Until the bug is fixed, you could try this: Exclude files whose size is larger than 40 GB AND whose name includes a curly left brace AND whose name includes a curly right brace AND whose name includes a dash (minus) That is, of course, not suitable for the scripts where you backup a bootable disk.
  6. It would not be the first time that a Windows update breaks Retrospect. It often takes months for Microsoft to correct the problems. Is there anything else but System Volume Information that is backed up, that should not be backed up? Have you checked that everything you want to backup is actually backed up?
  7. That ends with "Exclude nothing" !!!! You specifically include "System Volume information" in what you want to backup. In fact, you seem to backup "junk" files ONLY. You must have reversed the meaning of the selector.
  8. I also found some more information here: https://fossbytes.com/system-volume-information-folder-windows-shrink/
  9. You should run the cmd window as Administrator. Then, in order to see hidden files, you should type: dir /a:h "system volume information"

    Error -1104 (device not ready)

    From the error it looks like it is your C: drive that causes the problem ("can't read error"). If it was the destination, the error should say "can't write error" or something like that. I would check the C: drive, both the S.M.A.R.T. status as well as doing a surface scan. (Windows CHKDSK does not do a surface scan.)

    Dashboard empty

    I finally got around to trying this. Sorry about the delay. First try: Stopped the engine, renamed my 337 MB config80.dat file, rebooted the computer. The client was still there, no dashboard. Second try: Stopped the engine, Moved my renamed file, the .bak and the newly created .dat (955kB) to the desktop, rebooted the computer. The client was still there, no dashboard.
  12. If you have installed software that enables you to write to NTFS disks, Fuse is often part of the package.
  13. I do not think so. Only if you are using third party file systems, such as NTFS.
  14. Does it have to be manually? Can it be a script? If "yes", create a script and schedule it to run once at a time in a few minutes from "now".
