Retrospect Engine constantly crashing

Recommended Posts


I installed Retrospect 16.5 on a system running 10.14.6 two days ago. Configured Retrospect to do a full system backup (to Minio S3 on a Synology). No problems, and the first backup was a success. Configured Retrospect to back up every day at 6 am. 

Checked on the machine today, and fans were spinning. Retrospect engine was crashing and restarting every 10 seconds or so. Console.log gives this message:

"(com.retrospect.retroengine[1057]): Service exited with abnormal code: 255"

Retrospect Assert_log gives this error: "Error info: Assertion failure at "slotcon.cpp-698", on threadID 0x70000DE0C000"

Restarting the computer doesn't fix it. Stopping and restarting the Engine doesn't fix it. 

Any ideas?

Here's the Knowledge Base article "Cloud Backup — How to Set Up Minio for Cloud Backup".  If you've followed that procedure,  here's why and how to create a Support Case for a bug.  If you bought/upgraded Retrospect within 30/45 days, you may be entitled to free personalized help from Tech Support.
