Create Disk Media Set - access denied

Recommended Posts

At the suggestion of Retrospect support, I'm switching from the very buggy File media sets to Disk media sets. So I tried to create my first one. I want it to be in the same folder where I've always kept my backups, on an external 4TB drive. I can create the media set, but then it wants me to choose a location for adding a new member to the set. I choose the Backups folder on the external drive. It says "Path not found or access denied". What's up with that?

Hmm. A restart fixed it. Now another external has the same problem. This must be the same problem that periodically caused Retrospect to fail because it couldn't write to the File media sets on that drive, and only a reboot would fix that.

How are your drives connected? Thunderbolt or USB?

Do you have any hubs between the drives and the Mac?

Have you tried using another (set of) cable(s)?

Mac Thunderbolt port Firewire 800 adapter hard drive.

No hubs, just 3 FireWire 800 drives connected in series to the adapter.

No on other cables. They've been working fine for years. Only in the past few months has this problem started. Some problem with permissions or something.
