  1. I'm looking for a reliable way to launch an external script when a scheduled backup has completed. Does Retrospect offer such a facility?
  2. Slightly more clarity on this, I think: According to this: So the "EFI System partition" sounds like it's replaced the System Reserved Partition on modern systems. That's fortunate, as this is the way it came delivered from Dell: the only thing I've done is partition the user area (C: and E: in the image.) > Could you drag the divider down to show all volumes and repost the screenshot? There are a bunch of other drives but excepting C and E:, I think the image shows everything of interest, no? > Veeam has a decent article on troubleshooting this, and you should be able to get more information by looking for VSS errors in the application event log. I also notice you are using BitLocker -- I believe that means you must store shadow copies on their originating volume. That's interesting, many thanks. When I do a LIST, I see: C:\Windows\system32>vssadmin list shadowstorage vssadmin 1.1 - Volume Shadow Copy Service administrative command-line tool (C) Copyright 2001-2013 Microsoft Corp.

  3. Hi David -- Thanks for that. My system doesn't show a "System reserved" partition though. I'm guessing that's a W7 thing, maybe? I see something rather more complicated:
  4. Can't use Open File Backup option for x15 os (C:), error -3045 (there is insufficient storage space to complete the operation) [*] VssWSnapVolume: DoSnapshotSet failed, winerr -2147212513, error -3045 The advice in the FAQS for this error are for Windows 7. They don't seem to relate to W10 and don't appear to have been updated anywhere. Anyone know how to fix this? C has plenty of free space so I assume it's not that at fault. Google doesn't suggest anything for that function call(?) and winerr. ian
  5. I'm moving my backup files from separate hard drives to a NAS server. In order to recatalog successfully it seems I have to consolidate all the .rdb files into the first directory, eg name/1-name otherwise it files to find the files in 2-name, etc. This has worked fine up to now, apart from one backup where recataloging fails to recognise the files from 2-name and 3-name now in 1-name. reporting a list a missing data files for the Backup set: How do I fix this problem please? Ian
  6. True. A few years back it was much better, which added value to the product. Unresolved issues such as this translate directly into loss of future sales.
  7. Selectors *do* work more or less, but it helps to not make them too complicated. Or if you need complicated to separate them into separate selectors and then combine then in another. If you could give some more information about what you've got and why you think it's not working maybe someone copuld help you. i
  8. Well, this sucks. Support on this forum used to be really good. What happened? i
  9. Anyone from support out there who'd like to comment on this??? i
  10. I have several backup sets spanned over two disks. The second of these disks developed a fault but i was able to copy to a another disk almost everything except a few members. However attempting to rebuild the catlog so that Retrospect knows that some stuff it thought was backed up actually isn't I find that Retrospect ignores all members after the first missing member. Is there any way to get Retrospect to cope more gracefully with missing members? i (Retrospect v7.7)
