Retrospect 10.0.1 for Mac with Log full of "._" errors

Recommended Posts

I guess Retrospect isn't backing up the Mac 'hidden' ._ files, after each daily backup I have a log with over 3,000 errors, all are the "._filename" files. Otherwise, the 'real' files are backing up normally. Any idea on how to either make Retrospect backup these hidden files, or have Retrospect ignore the hidden files?

I get about 3,000 of these errors daily, they are all "._filename" which are Mac 'hidden' files. Any way to just skip these files during backups?

-5000 is a file sharing permissions error. You should mount the shared volume with a user and password that has full permissions to all files.
