  1. I have a dual USB iBook, 8mb VRAM. I get the problem almost consistently with backing up the system files, backing-up with using the System Folder sector. If I backup with any other section, like backing up my documents folder, I can get through most of the time wiithout the error. I have tried the TDK CD-RW and the Imation CD-R. I am willing to believe that ithe problem is solved with using the correct media. Now only to find the correct media. However, I can copy files to either the Imation or TDK media with no problem. I can burn Audio CDs from iTunes on the Imation CD-R with no problem. I can ever rewrite data on the TDK CD-RW with no problem. I have been told that the 206 is being generated or somehow comes from the hardware itself. But, if the OS and iTunes can write to same media that consistenly failes with Restrospect, then I have to assume that the problem lies with the software or its interation with the OS. Please advise
  2. I have been running into the exact same problem, error 206 with the Toshiba SD-R2002.

  3. Irene, It is not that I have not been able to backup sometimes. BTW, I have a iBook with Mac X 10.1.5 and the Toshiba SD-R2002 DVD/CD-R combo drive. I have had the most success with backing up regular files, that is files that I create or modify. I have the most trouble with backing up the system files, using the "System Folder" section criterion. The reason for the failure is always the same, error 206. But the failure occurs at different points in the 'copying...' phase of the backup. Again, the error occurs intermittently, on some types of backups more than the others. I have successfully backed up the System, Applications, and my files on TDK CD-RW media. But I have also had many failures with this media. Retrying the backup with fresh media does not appear to help once the error first occurs. This media is blueish. I have backed up my files, but not the System Folder with the Imation CD-R media. This media is whitish. I have been able to burn CDs with the OS and with iTunes on both media types without issue. I have even successfully used the same media to do so that Retrospect failed to backup to. I have tried the backup, using the TDK media, with or without compression and still received the failure. It appears that there is some strange interaction with Retrospect and the drive type. As far as I can tell the problems with Retrospect and this hardware has been documented in the Retrospect forums for months. There are several responses from the forum moderators that state your company is looking into the failure. There has been allot of good information returned to your company. It is hard to believe that making some determination as to the nature of this problem takes months and months. If your company is unable or unwilling to figure this out, then please just tell us so. Although it is less convenient, it still possible to backup my system without Retrospect. With so many queries on this problem left unanswered and no reports of sudden success by the reporters of the problem, it is seems likely that they as I will I shortly have found a way to backup their systems without your product. Surely that is not what you want.
  4. I have been running into the exact same problem, error 206 with the Toshiba SD-R2002. Did you ever figure out what the problem was? Was it related to mouse clicks or to the media itself. I get the problem almost consistently with backing up the system files, backing-up with using the System Folder sector. If I backup with any other section, like backing up my documents folder, I can get through most of the time wiithout the error. I have tried the TDK CD-RW and the Imation CD-R. I am willing to believe that ithe problem is solved with using the correct media. Now only to find the correct media. Please advise
