    Retrospect 7.7 on Windows10

    Is it possible to run Retrospect 7.7 on Windows10? I'm thinking of updating the OS, but would like to keep on running 7.7. Kind regards, Fredrik
  2. My HDD is failing. I have purchased and installed a Samsung 850 EVO SSD to replace and tried to clone but this has failed due to the state of the HDD. The PC is still working - just. I am not sure if the Retrospect disaster disk I made long ago will still work and before I try it, I recall Robin Mayoff helpfully suggested a few years ago a simpler route via a "live restore" - installing windows to the new disk, then Retrospect, then restore entire volume. Will this work with a new SSD instead of HDD (same size), or what is your preferred suggestion, please? (I am presently contemplating a clean install to the new SSD, but would prefer not to if possible - unless I could then restore to it.) My OS is Windows 7 Pro (up to date), and Retrospect is rather old at 7.7. I have a good current backup up set on an external HDD and cat files are on a USB stick. Many thanks
  3. Hello All ! Here's the story... that kept me awake for around 2 days... I have an XP SP 3 VM running under VMWare Fusion 6.0.2 on my Mac OS 10.9.2 Mac Pro (2008), and backed up by a Retrospect 7.7 SBS server. I've been using my VM daily for years, but it was giving signs of malfunctionning (freezes with a black screen after login in). I decided to rebuild it from scratch, by creating a new one with the same characteristics under VMWare Fusion, and then doing a bare metal restoration with the Retrospect 7.7 Rescue CD and my latest backup. It didn't work as intended. I was able to boot the VM from the Rescue CD iso, and got the first dialogs for the restoration. The problem was that the Emergency Recovery Wizard was unable to configure correctly the (virtual) network card: it kept assigning a localhost address (127.0.0.1) which is pretty much useless when you want to connect the Retro Client to the Server in order to restore everything. In fact, the option "Adjust drivers to support new hardware" shown on the documentation page http://www.retrospect.com/en/documentation/user_guide/win/disaster_recovery and that I linked here was missing: http://download.retrospect.com/docs/win/v8.0/user_guide/img/en/addendum_rug-17.jpg I remember doing a bare-metal recovery on a physical PC some years ago using the backup from my server over the network, and it had worked fine. Why isn't this working today anymore ? Is it because I was trying to do it on a VM ? Why is that "Adjust drivers..." option missing from the wizard ? I ended up recreating my VM anyway by first installing Win XP from the CD, then the Retrospect 7.7 client and then doing a full restore on it. After some tweaking around (notably because for some unknown reason the MBR of my VM was messed up, and I had to restore it with the CD console), I finally was able to use it normally. Thanks for your ideas, Paul-Henri
  4. Today I tried to upgrade “Retrospect Small Business Server Premium 7.7” to “Retrospect Small Business Server app (SBS 2003-2011) Upgrade w/ ASM, WIN 8”. I have contacted support. I ended up installing 7.7 to get Retrospect working again. (1) Retrospect 8.5.136 did “hang” starting (>15 minutes). I think it was unable to “convert” the config77.dat file from the older version. I tried this several times. Starting without the “Retrospect” folder in “ProgramData”, so without previous preferences, worked. Then I could enter the license number. (2) To my horror when I entered the new license number, the “Open file” option didn’t became activated. Rereading the information on the Retrospect website left me nothing but confused. There now seem to be two “Open file” options? To get open files backup on the Server and the Clients, needs a new Add-on? I bought the “Retrospect Add-on Value Package for SBS,WIN 7.6/7.7” in the past. Do I need to spend more money? The reasons for buying this Upgrade are/where: (a) fixing the Grooming issue ( better Exchange Mailbox (2007/2010) access/backup © Retrospect running as a "Windows Service", so you have to have a terminal server session with Retrospect running all the time (d) Normal Preference structures, not a archaeological monolith of a .dat file. If the Grooming failures are fixed (for our system using 7.7), I don't know. The other points, especially © and (d), aren't changed at all! Fulco
  5. First: Background Chassis: Dell Poweredge T410 Xeon E5620 @ 2.4 GHz 8GB RAM 5TB RAID 5 on a Dell PERC 6/i RAID controller IBM ULTRIUM-HH5 Tape Drive Software Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard x64 Retrospect 7.7.620 -- It all started when I did a standard cleanup on the RAID and it wiped out the entire catalog set. So I dumped that destination, and started over. Ever since I have started having severe issues with the backup process. The screenshot attached says it all. What ends up happening is even on a full reboot, as soon as it tries to backup any client on the network, Memory usage climbs to maximum and the backup either hangs, or fails eventually with the "Not Enough Application Memory" error. On the worst case, Retrospect throws a cpp error and dumps the process. in either case it damages the catalog file belonging to the destination it was accessing, Attempting to rebuild it, fails with the same error... and endless loops ensue. I am honestly at a loss here... I have not backed up the network since the 1st and I am beginning to look at other options. Help?!

    Backup File Permissions

    Last week we had a server completely die on us. We restored all of the data successfully however, the file permissions did not restore. Are we doing something wrong or does restrospect not support restoring file permissions? We are running Windows version 7.7.
