Upgrade to the 7.7 version so you can get the new Disaster Recovery Boot CD that does not require any of those steps that are failing.

My original question:

 

Any chance of finding out WHAT file/directory was not found?

 

I'd really like to NOT have to drop a minimum of $170 for an "upgrade" if it's just a matter of a couple files not being found.

Perhaps you misunderstand. These user-to-user forums are not the way to contact EMC Support. From the Retrospect Forum Rules:

Hope this helps to clear up your misunderstanding.

I understand perfectly now, thank you.

 

I suppose my mistake was attempting to resolve a Retrospect technical issue with someone purporting to be the “Senior Manager, Retrospect Tech Support†on a Retrospect-operated forum.

 

Man, what was I thinking?

I really have no idea why those errors are happening. I do know they won't happen in the new version because of the total change to the restore process in 7.7

 

Also if you have any vista or Windows 7 computers, then you can't even create a DR CD with 7.6 which is another advantage of upgrading.

I'm having exactly the same problem. My os is Win XP sp3. I tried catalog rebuild (that someone else with same problem did). Still gives error 1101 and same messages as above. I also don't want to plunk down another $170 for an upgrade from 7.6 to 7.7 I just bought the drive. Other than creating the DR CD, it seems ok backing up from my inspiron 6000 laptop to iomega 500g usb drive.
