The same way you would on a normal script.

 

Exactly how depends on if your computer is a Retrospect client or if it is the Retrospect server. Which is it?

All of this may also be found in the manual.

OK, start the Retrospect Client "application" on your PC.

Select the "Access" pane. Make sure the checkbox private file/folders/volumes is checkes. Click "Add..." and add your D drive.

 

See page 177 of the Retrospect 7.0 manual.

Thanks that got it

 

My expectations for this product were quite higher .... for a product that markets it self to the enterprise it sure has some short commings. I should not have to walk over to a client PC to do anything.

Actually, Retrospect does not market itself as an Enterprise product. EMC Insignia is an EMC product line directed at SMB.

You wrote it was YOUR D: drive, right?

I didn't want you to walk over to the server, so I suggested you do it this way.

 

You CAN do this from the server, too. See my first reply about adding just the C: drive to the script instead of the client container (which contains all your hard drives).
