  1. USD hard drive on my router filled up. Grooming didn't do much. Rebuilt catalog multiple times and incremental backup still failed. Multiple groom/rebuild/backup cycles failed with various errors that seemed to be related to multiple clobbered rdb files. Attempted a Backup Set Transfer. It started to run, and run, and run. Came back a day later. Although it had finished, I saw 0 errors, 0 performance and 0:00:00 elapsed time, and no log file. The rdb files seem to be in the folder for the transfer set, but I am not confident that it went OK. Having said that, I am attempting to do a recycle backup to the original backup set to start over. I did NOT forget the original Backup Set so that my scripts would stay intact. Retrospect is now "Building Catalog File..." which it has been doing for 26+ hours. No files have been completed, and the neither the Error/Warnings or Performance indicators have anything in them. It does seem to be cycling through files. It is creating Session files in the folder where the original backup rdb files live, and is updating the catalog (on another drive). What I don't understand is why it is reading the old backup when I set it for a recycle backup. Should it not just delete the old backup rdb files and start over? So, for the moment, I am dead in the water with no confidence that I have a properly transferred backup set or a working backup process.
