  1. As David points, there is no way in Retrospect. You could use the schedule in Energy Saver in Apples System preferences to turn off the Mac at a time when the backup is (always) finished.
  2. From the top of my memory, so it may not be correct (I'm currently away on vacation so I can't check): Retrospect asks you to insert the last tape. Then you insert the first. After that tape, Retrospect asks you if there are any more tape. Respond yes and insert the second tape. After that tape, Retrospect asks you if there are any more tape. Respond yes and insert the third tape. After that tape, Retrospect asks you if there are any more tape. Respond yes and insert the fourth tape. After that tape, Retrospect asks you if there are any more tape. Respond yes and insert the fifth tape. If that doesn't help, try again and this time do NOT to insert the fifth tape. That way you should be able to read the first four tapes, at least.

    How to verify a very large backup set

    Excellent.

    How to verify a very large backup set

    You could set all tapes except one as "lost" and verify that tape. After the verify you set all the tapes to "found" again. What if you must do a restore? (After a hard disk failure, for instance.) If you are unlucky, there is (at least) one file on each tape, so it would take "about 3 solid 24/7 months to complete". I suggest you start a new backup set and keep the current set somewhere safe.

    I didn't think that Retrospect have any shops or support centers, only Apple.

    Since you just upgraded to a new version, you should be able to get support from Retrospect. https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/edition (This is mainly a user-to-user forum.)

    Full backup size versus in use size

    What filter/selector did you use? All files except cache files? Or something else excluding more files? You may have large pagefile.sys and hiberfile.sys files. Those are not backed up. Also, Retrospect never backs up duplicate files more than once.

    Why is it backing up the EXACT same file?

    Thanks for posting the explanation.

    Why is it backing up the EXACT same file?

    What else happened between day 1 and day 3? Any Windows update? That might cause metadata to change and that causes the file to be backed up again. The reason for that is that there is no way for Retrospect to really know the files are really identical, as it does not perform a byte-for-byte comparison of the contents. All it sees are two files with similarities in SOME of the metadata (such as size and probably dates), but not in other metadata. In order to prevent data loss (if the files indeed were different), the file is backed up again. Backing up is all about preventing data loss. :)
  10. It is probably a bug, but since there is no way to reproduce the error with any sort of consistency, it is most likely a waste of time reporting it. How to prevent? Restarting the Retrospect server computer once in a while sounds like a good way.
  11. It is hard to see on your first screen shot ("resolved container") that it actually is from the script PROGRAMS. If it indeed is from that script, I would try rebooting the Retrospect Server.
  12. You added the APHRODITE client to the script, instead of adding APHRODITE's C: volume (or whatever volume you wanted to backup with that script).

    Error -562

    Does this client have any problems with any other volume? If "yes", I would check the network hardware and software. If "no", I would check and repair the volume (with Apple's Disk Utility or something more powerful if you have).

    Error -562

    ""Connection reset by peer" is the TCP/IP equivalent of slamming the phone back on the hook. It's more polite than merely not replying, leaving one hanging. But it's not the FIN-ACK expected of the truly polite TCP/IP converseur." https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1434451/what-does-connection-reset-by-peer-mean
  15. One more thing: Does your script only backup the C: drive? Or is it set up to backup the "Retrospect" drive, too?
