Report Console Backups panel bar graph bug for multi-drive backup in Retrospect bug reports Posted December 8, 2015 Within the same execution of Retrospect, I do not know how to quit and relaunch the console (I suppose I could look it up). The Retrospect app is the console. The console is only a user interface to the Retrospect Engine process; the Engine is what actually performs the backups, and is started and stopped via a preference pane in System Preferences. You can quit and relaunch the console app at any time without affecting backups or other activities. The fact that you are rebooting daily is likely avoiding the issues we see where the console miscommunicates with the engine, which typically appear in our case only after the console has been up and running for several days.
