Hi, I have a few disk media sets set up and so far running fine. When the drive fills, according to the documentation, " Retrospect asks for a new member, adds it to the Media Set and continues appending data. It automatically uses any available new or erased media. If the media has the name Retrospect is looking for, Retrospect will erase and reuse it. However, Retrospect will never automatically use a medium with the wrong name if it has data on it." What specific name will it look for? I want to be sure it does not decide to erase a drive with live data on it! Will it be the name of the original disk with a "-2" appended to it or something? If I want an additional disk to be "ready to go" in case the first disk fills up, what should I name it? Do I need to explicitely tell it for every media set I created, the second disk's name? I'm running Retrospect 8 on a Mac, backing up weekly to alternating 4TB drives, which will likely fill up in the coming month. Thanks! Jeff
I'm trying to rebuild the catalog from a spanned Retrospect 5 backup set which is on tape. From the Retrospect for Windows version 7.7 help file, "For a Backup Set created with Retrospect 5.0 or 5.1, it requests the first member of the set. " I don't have the first member of the set available. Does that mean I'm out of luck? Note, when I try to start the rebuild with any of the other tapes the choice to skip the first tape is greyed out.
