  1. It will not backup the files again.
  2. Does this help with your error? https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/kb/dr_restore_error_1630
  3. It is the user guide that isn't updated. (And probably some of the GUI as well.) (Don't get me started on the state of the user guide....) You can create an emergency boot "disc" on an USB memory, I have done so myself. I can't seem to find the document on how to do that.
  4. Thank you for letting us know you found it AND wrote where you found it.

    Backup set located on site to site VPN

    You are allowed, but it would be a performance bottleneck. The catalog file access can be very intense.

    I suggest you try a proactive script for laptops. That script will poll for the presence of any laptop on the network and start the backup as soon as it is available. https://www.retrospect.com/en/documentation/user_guide/mac/operations#proactiveai-backup

    What will you be backing up? A laptop that might not be connected for la long time? Then a disk-to-disk-to-could backup would be good. A server idling anyway during the night? Then direct to cloud is easiest.

    Don't try to fix what isn't broken. If Retrospect is doing everything you need it to do, there is no reason to upgrade.
  9. Interesting. I was indeed right.
  10. No, not in the "Summary" pane. Try the "Options" pane. Also try what I wrote in a previous reply.
  11. I think (not sure) that you should double-click the catalog file (in Windows Explorer) while the backup is NOT running.

    Curious (spurious?) verify error?

    My best guess is that you got a (temporary) read error from the disk during the verify. An error that is not repeatable. The MD5 digest is stored either in the catalog file or in the backup set itself. It is created/stored during the backup. What happens if you run the verify again? How is the disk connected to the computer? (USB isn't one of the most reliable types of connection.)

    Chipset Driver update broke Retrospect

    That will not be very informative 6 months (or more) from now.

    Files backed up again

    I found a solution, which work since this is just a data disk, not a system disk.
