  1. Hello Retrospect Gurus: I'm using some new 6TB drives from Seagate (Enterprise models) with Mac OS 10.10.1 and 10.10.2. When I uncheck "Ignore ownership on this volume," the familiar permissions which usually look like: user - read & write staff - read & write everyone - read only change to: system - read & write wheel - read & write everyone - read & write I've been adding user to this list to make the drives work for us, but applications like Chronosync complain and ask for an admin password to allow backup. Also, Retrospect reports this error in the log on the drives that have this issue: - 3/18/15 5:53:27 PM: Copying <drive> MapError: unknown Mac error 20 Backing up 1 files using block level incremental backup. 3/18/15 5:55:47 PM: Snapshot stored, 79.5 MB 3/18/15 5:55:57 PM: Comparing <drive> 3/18/15 5:56:44 PM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 531 files, 3.2 GB, with 13% compression Performance: 5,404.4 MB/minute (5,949.3 copy, 4,886.9 compare) Duration: 00:03:16 (00:01:58 idle/loading/preparing) Should I be concerned about this? It says it completed successfully. I don't understand the system and wheel designations. Thanks in advance for thoughts.

    drive Issues - Grooming

    I'm using Retrospect 7.6.1 I have 2TB disks that I use to do weekly backups of a few machines in the office. The backup sets are set to retain 2 backups when groomed. The drive is full and will not groom. (isn't that the point of grooming??) Also i'm having a few issues, when there is 100GB left on the drive, I run the groom on some of the smaller backup sets and the groom runs. It will often indicate that it cleaned several GB of data. The most recent instance cleaned 60GB of data... My drive was at 118GB Free before the grooming and at 98GB free after the groom... So i'm not sure why more disk space is consumed after a groom. When i attempt to explore the drive, there seems to be a set of .rdb files inside the System Volume Information (hidden folder) located on the disk. Can anyone tell me why those are there??? All backup sets are located in G:\Retrospect\[respective backupset name] I'm very confused, any insight into what is going on would be helpful. If i have to I will format and re-backup but i would like to know why this is happening.
