"Week 2 Backup" failed during automatic execution, error -1124 ( invalid NTFS data)

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Since repairing my external Lacie Big Disk using disk utility, my Retrospect backups no longer work.

I receive the error: "Week 2 Backup" failed during automatic execution, error -1124 ( invalid NTFS data)

Retrospect mac v8.2.0

MacOS 10.6.8

Backing up to external USB disk

Catalog stored on local Mac HD

Any ideas?

A lot of similar problems, but without proper solutions. As stated the disk catalog was repaired already.

Do you think another repair attempt would solve the problem?

It isn't clear if your LaCie Big Disk is the backup source or a member of the destination media set.

How are your drives formatted? Is any of them really NTFS? If so, why?

The Lacie is my source backup disk. They are all Mac Extended I believe and have not changed in 10+ years. the problem only began after the source disk was repaired.

I wasn't the tech who repaired the disk. Would a 3rd party utility such as "disk warrior" create this type of problem?

Should it be repaired again using the Apple disk utility?

DiskWarrior is a very good program, so I doubt it's the source of your problem.

Yes, try Apple's Disk Utility. :)
