  1. I get the exact same errors backing up to a WebDav source. I can mount it fine, can copy files to it fine. I have Retrospect 10.2. It starts off backing up okay but after about 20Gb or 30Gb into it I have about 10 of these MapError: unknown Mac error 60 TFile::Flush: fsync failed, /Volumes/webdav.livedrive.com-2/Retrospect/Media Set A/1-Media Set A/AAd.rdb, oserr 60, error -1002 Eventually it gets hung up and Retrospect looks like it's still backing up but nothing is happening. I try to stop the script but won't stop. Have to force quit and repair the catalog. (Which repairing works, it finds the data and repairs it no problem) I've sent my logs to Retrospect. Hopefully this can be solved soon. I'm using this WebDav server as my offsite backup and ready to dump several TBs of data to it. Dana
  2. Interested in purchasing a LTO-5 tape solution for Mac soon but will wait until tested. Does anyone know a timeframe when the Mac OS will be tested? I found this on a device search Device Interface Media Windows Mac OS Quantum LTO-5 FH SAS LTO Qualified Not tested Quantum LTO-5 HH SAS LTO Qualified Not tested Tandberg HH LTO 5 SAS SAS LTO Qualified Not tested Thanks! Dana
  3. I've got 4 proactive scripts with schedules Monday - Friday 6PM-7AM Every 15 hours. They all started at 12:00AM Tuesday Morning. Nothing else was running. Shouldn't they have started at 6PM Monday night? Also, I reported a bug that my proactive M-F All Day Every 15 hours only temporary sticks. It reverts back to EveryDay instead of M-F. Console & Engine from installer 8.1.626 Thanks
  4. That's nice for a backup script but don't see where you can choose a different media set in the proactive script schedule. Does anyone know what happens when multiple media sets are selected for a Proactive Script? thanks
  5. What exactly happens when selecting Multiple Media Sets in a backup or proactive script? Does it backup to both media sets or only backup to the next one if the first media set is unavailable? Or does it alternate? Thanks!
  6. Every time I restart my Retrospect server when I try to "Add" a Source nothing shows up. I have to "Stop" the Retrospect engine, then "Start" it again. All my sources show up. Very consistent. It's done this will all my versions... now at Console 8.1.622 and what ever the Oct 9th, 2009 Engine version is. Dana
  7. That's what I was worried about... if Retrospect was smart enough that if I manually removed an old Snapshot that it didn't remove any files that are associated with other snapshots. Sounds like it is. I used a server to duplicate all my laptops to so for every recycle that server was the first to get backed up. Then the laptop backups went quickly. That was with Retro 6.x. I got rid of that for Retro 8.x thinking I'll never will do a recycle. I'm in the process of copying recent backups to my new offsite 16TB Drobo (on week 2) so my data is pretty massive and the snapshots I'm talking about are pretty deep (back to April '09). I'll play around with removing a past backup on another mac and see how painful that is. I'm also toying with the idea of just doing a Recycle but will wait until my offsite backup is current. Will then have to use my offsite for incrementals until my regular backup finishes the recycle. Decisions, decisions. Thanks! Dana
  8. So I'm guessing when a Mac is removed from the network, their data will remain in the backup forever until a recycle? The snapshots will never increase so the grooming never kicks in. Is this correct? Or is there a way to delete the snapshots so the grooming will remove the data out of the backup. Thanks! Dana
  9. I have a couple Server Volumes with 100s of Gigs of data that were temporary storage. I erased those volumes, partitioned, and renamed the drives. My backup backed the temp data months ago. Besides doing a recycle how do I get that data out of my backup? Grooming I don't think will work because those volumes don't get backedup anymore and will never reach my "Groom to keep this number of backups 30". What if I "Remove" the snapshots in the "Past Backups" will it then be groomed out next time around? Thanks!
  10. Thanks! Yea, I ran across those bugs also. Had to do some creative times to make it stick and work.
  11. I think I know the answer but needs some clarification because it's a little confusing to me. I want my proactive schedule to run 5:00PM Friday night to 9:00AM Monday morning. The only way I see to do that is: Schedule1: Select Friday & Saturday 5:00PM to 5:00PM (next day) Schedule2: Select Sunday 5:00PM to 9:00AM (next day) Will that give me what I'm trying to accomplish? Thanks Dana
  12. I was trying to figure a way to backup users external portable drives & flash drives during the day without doing a full scan on the startup volume. Those scans can take 15 to 20 minutes just to realize at the end that the volume was excluded in a rule. And don't always know the name of the external drives and would like it to be an automatic process without me setting it up before hand as a source. Just wishful thinking Thanks Dana
  13. Anyway to NOT scan a Volume that is selected as a source in the script AND EXCLUDED in a Rule? Thanks Dana
  14. That seemed to do it. I stopped the engine and then started it again. Multicast is working. Regular restarts though didn't work. I can live with that. Thanks Dana
  15. I'm trying to add Sources using MultiCast or SubNet Broadcast and nothing shows up. I've tried adding from my MacBook Pro 10.5.6 and directly on the server 10.5.5 running the engine. I can "Add Source Directly..." no problem. Didn't have this problem in 6.1. Using the latest demo before purchase 8.0.608.1. Please let me know Thanks Dana
