  1. Cannot recatalog backups

    I suggest you open a support case with Retrospect Support. https://www.retrospect.com/en/support This forum is mainly a user-to-user forum and it's very hard to help you with such a problem.
  2. David is right, Copy Media Set is the way to go.
  3. only scan specific folders

    The scan time is not dependent of the amount of data, it depends only on the amount of files. So if folder 1 contains 10 files of 1TB each, it would scan very fast. I would do something like this: 1) Have 5 folders at the root level, folders 1-5. 2) Set the permissions so that no new folders can be created at the root level of the volume, only inside the existing folders. Short term projects would have to be created inside folder 5 (as they can't be created as a folder 6 at root level). 3) Create 5 subvolumes, one for each root folder. 4) Create scripts for each subvolume. When running the scripts, only the subvolume will be scanned.
  4. 1 Raid 10 vs multiple raid 1 members

    When you recycle, you recycle the entire backup set and all its members. You do not recycle just one member. You should instead consider "grooming", which is a process where the oldest backups are groomed out, making more space in the backup set. I assume that your "archival media" is stored off site. You could use cheap USB disks for this. Think fire, theft, flooding, lightning, hurricanes, you name it. As for RAID, when using RAID 1, you lose half the capacity. I would go for RAID 5 or RAID 6. You can set up as many logical volumes on the RAID disk as you like. You could have three of them, each being larger than the RAID 1 disks you propose.
  5. Sorry, I don't use Onedrive and I don't have FCU installed, so I can't help with your specific problem.
  6. Retrospect 11.5 is not supported for Windows 10 Fall Creators update. You need Retrospect 12. https://www.retrospect.com/win10
  7. Copying a retrospect hard disk backup

    From the top of my head (as I don't have Retrospect for Windows where I am at the moment): (I assume you have already copied the backup set files (.rdb files etc) to their new location.) Go to Configure and then Backup Sets. Select the backup set in question. Go to the pane Members. There should be a button the select the new location of the backup set files.
  8. Keep unique tape name when adding to a backup set

    You also need the correct tapes in the correct order when doing a restore. Older files are on tapes with lower numbers. When enabling "Fast catalog rebuild" option (page 399 in the above mentioned user's guide) you only need to insert the most recent tape to recreate the tape catalog. Pages 478-480 also outlines this as Retrospect is first asking for the most recent member.
  9. Keep unique tape name when adding to a backup set

    I forgot that you must have a tape station or loader with a bar code reader to see the label name in Retrospect. As Jotrago writes, just remove the label or apply your own over it with the Retrospect name.
  10. Keep unique tape name when adding to a backup set

    When viewing the members of the backup set, Retrospect will show both names side by side. Like this: 1-Backup Set A GHD633L4 2-Backup Set A GHD654L4 You can also write both names on the paper sleeve inside the plastic tape case. When I used tapes in Retrospect, I reused some of them after a few months (while some were kept "forever"). The tapes that were reused got a post-It paper with the Retrospect name inside the plastic case. The label name was already on the tape cartridge. So I don't think the Retrospect naming will cause you any problems.
  11. What if you in the Finder tries to write a file (copy) into the same folder? ("File "/Volumes/TetroMedia/Tetro Video/Wanka Drive Backup/VFX Wanka Mattes/VFX 359 Matte/._VFX_359_Matte_00574.dpx") Do you get any errors?
  12. Offline incremental restore, possible?

    The answer is "that depends". For one thing, Windows 10 is not supported. I doubt the restored drive will be bootable. This is a Windows problem, not a Retrospect problem per se. Please see: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/clone-disk-and-make-it-bootable/a8a6ebbd-f8ac-4482-9ec1-8eda3707de87?auth=1 Provided you are running Windows 8.1 or less and provided you can make the new drive bootable, I say your chances are good to do what you want.
  13. Backup file matching problem

    There is some kind of file meta-data that makes Retrospect think the files are not the same. I had the same problem some years back with a dual boot (Vista and 7) computer. The files on the (separate) data disk was seen as different files when booting in the other of the two OS:es. I never found a way around it.
  14. Is "TetroMedia" a network volume? Then the user used to access (log into) that volume doesn't have enough permissions. Is "TetroMedia" a local volume? (USB, Firewire or Thunderbolt) Then it is the logged in (Mac) user that doesn't have enough permissions to write the files.
  15. Exchange Database Backup Error

    Not that I can really be of any help (unfortunately), but there is a piece of information missing in your post: Is this an error that appeared after a period without errors? Or is this a new installation and the error was there right from the start?
