How do you add an existing catalogue to Retrospect?

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

We've just upgraded our server computer but all storage and backup disks are the same - only the server computer and OS drive is new.

 

How do we transfer our existing catalogues over to the new server?

 

'Locate' won't even show the disk the catalogues reside on and 'Add' just creates a new one - but how do we get Retrospect to recognise an existing catalogue?

 

Cheers

 

Ben

Thanks heaps for reply Lennart,

 

Have tried double clicking the catalogue file as well as dragging it into the Media Sets window but no luck.

 

Is there really no way to add an existing catalogue?

 

This seems a bit weird right?

Strangely, clicking the locate button now shows the drive that contains the catalogues so was able to add them that way - not sure why this disk wasn't seen by Retrospect previously.

 

Cheers

Another issue which has always bugged me is that because you can have catalogues that may or may not be in Retrospect, the add and remove buttons should actually be labelled 'Create' and 'Delete' - these terms more accurately describe what they do.

 

Then a new set of buttons labelled 'Add' and 'Remove' should be added to allow you to add and remove existing catalogues.
