Compare Errors

Recommended Posts

Since going to 9, I get file compare errors on just about every backup that I do,  Any ideas on how to fix this?

 

File "C:\Users\Brad\ITunes\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Music\Heart\Dog and Butterfly\7 Nada One.mp3": didn't compare

I quote rhwalker. 


Please provide:


(1) complete version number of Retrospect


(2) complete version number of Retrospect Driver Update


(3) complete version number of the OS


(4) complete description of hardware being used.


(5) complete description of the steps you are doing


(6) complete description of the problem


 

And I add one myself:

(7) A dozen (or so) complete lines of text from the log.

No, I have Block level turned off.  These are just mp3's files, so they are pretty small files.  I'm backing up my entire Users directory but it is always mp3's that fail to compare.  I am using Win 7 64 bit ultimate fully patched, 8 gig of RAM on dell xps 8300.  Retrospect is also latest 9.0.1 (110).  And it is happening both in Backups and Duplications

 

Here's an example

I've been using Retrospect for about 6 years.  I have seen backup sets get messed up every now and then but never duplications.  They have always been rock solid.
