Disaster Recovery disc creation in Retrospect 8

Recommended Posts

I am having a problem with the Disaster Recovery disc creation process in Retrospect 8.


I installed the Windows AIK for Windows 7 successfully.


Got the file here: http://www.microsoft...em-requirements


I followed the Retrospect tutorial exactly.


See video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKlhTd8j6YE&feature=plcp




The process begins - 9 files are located -


The process says "Disaster Recovery preparation in progress"


"Building your Disaster Recovery disc image file..."


Then it stops and I get this message:


"Disaster Recovery preparation completed with errors. Retrospect encountered problems while preparing for Disaster Recovery and can't continue,

Please see the log for details."


Here is the log file:


+ Retrospect version 8.0.0 (199)

Launched at 11/9/2012 3:21 PM


+ Executing Prepare for Disaster Recovery at 11/9/2012 3:26 PM

Can't continue execution, error -1 ( unknown)




Anyone having similar problems?


Thank you.

When I try the disaster recovery, it just quits and dumps out of the Retrospect v8 program. So no disk.


As you I followed the instructions but have nothing to show for it.


Would love to see some way to get help on this.
