Modify_inc posted a topic in Server, SBS and Multi ServerHello! I'm using Retrospect OEM Single Server v8.5.0(136) on Windows Server 2012 R2 Usually we just leave Retrospect to do its thing every day and have had no real issues. We recycle between two Dell R7X91 320GB cartridges for our daily backups named, DailyBackup1 and DailyBackup2 starting at 8pm M-F. I always take one home at the end of the day, then swap it out for the previous night's backup when I return in the morning. I just happen to check the history today and noticed there have been many, I mean many days that show Execution Incomplete. Also, no data shows to have been copied over. Completed 0 files, @ zero KB, Remaining 298711 files @ 278.3 GB. The errors below are fairly the same for all of them, except there are a few where some data is copied, yet it still says the media request timed out after waiting, which makes no sense to me. How can anything be copied if the error just before stated the media request timed out? So every day (M-F) there are two logs for every work day. The first is usually a timeout error because the cartridge or DailyBackup it expects is not available (it's offsite), so then it looks for the other DailyBackup. It finds it and then starts backing up. Well that is what is used to do. Now, it just seems terribly inconsistent and I have no idea why or what has changed. The failed backup errors below are from 8/3/17. It wasn't until 8/18/17 (2 weeks later) that the log showed a full backup.

I'm also certain a cartridge is in the drive at all times as I am the one doing it. I'm still really puzzled why a few of the logs indicate a transfer started but then only a fraction of the files were actually copied, leaving 90% or more of disk space. operations_log.utx
