Windows 10 Feature Release 2004

Recommended Posts

Have any versions of Retrospect been certified on Feature Release 2004? Microsoft is now distributing it as an optional update to everyone.

I would definitely advise against upgrading if you still want to backup with Retrospect.

I have 5 machines, and my oldest, least important, machine now has 2004. I seem to have 2 big problems:

* The backup will run extremely slow at times : less than 3MB/minute. Not clear whether it's related to what files are being backed up or some general networking issues. At times it will speed up to the regular >200MB/minute.

* The backup will abort/fail before completion with : "    Scanning incomplete, error -1001 (unknown Windows OS error) "

 

I must admit though that I am still on version 12, because I don't want to pay for an upgrade every year.

speedyme,

The Retrospect Windows cumulative Release Notes now say

Engine [they meant "Client"—which appears with nothing below it above "Engine" in the Windows notes for this release but above the following in the Mac notes]

  • New Windows Client: Windows 10 May 2020 Update certification (Added June 2)

However this Laptop Magazine article cautions users not to install the Windows 10 May 2020 update—also known as version 2004—manually, especially if their laptops or desktops use Intel Optane memory.

I now have a 2nd machine that got the upgrade, and which I wanted to give a try. This one has no issues at all with Retrospect 12 and has backed up nicely at full speed.

So the issues with my 1st laptop are likely not to be related to Retrospect.

EDIT: issue with the 1st laptop is now also resolved. It looks like you may have to log in in Windows 10 b2004 with every locally defined user first. For every local user that logs in for the first time again after the update, Windows still is doing quite a bit of activity, which may be required to have Retrospect be able to access some files.

Does anyone know if this is true for 16.6?  I suppose it hasn't been tested for certification, but experience could be helpful.

rfajman,

The Forums search is your friend.  The phrase "with all latest updates installed" in the OP of this 2 July 2020 thread would imply that 16.6 works with Windows 10 May Update, although gnoelken seems to have his problems with 'Restore --> Find Files'.  Why don't you Private Message him and ask?
