  1. Thank you for the full explanation, bdunagan. Glad to know I'm not simply going crazy.
  2. Thanks. All I'm interested in doing is to search for any possible hits from a list of file names, but limit all results with a single constraint such as file path, file name suffix, date, etc. It just seems like a bug, being unable to set the pop-up options (ANY, NONE, ALL) as needed. Attached is a screenshot from another similar search field in HoudahSpot application which works normally.
  3. I am trying the demo of Mac Retrospect 11.5 and have a question regarding the Restore>"Search for files in selected media sets" search functions. The ANY, NONE, & ALL pop-up choices do not seem to work as expected (selecting one and having it "stick"), or as they typically work in other applications. Even with using the Option key and clicking the different + buttons it doesn't appear possible to set my searches as needed. I'm hoping this is just a problem of understanding on my part. For example, how would you set Retrospect to search for any of several file names (ANY), and limit results (ALL) to those found with file names ending in ".tif"? The pop-ups do not allow a choice of the proper term, though nothing is grayed out as if unavailable. It seems illogical. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Mavericks 10.9.5
  4. Lennart, thank you for offering your help. I could not hold off any longer and carried out my original plan. All seems well. If any further disk problems, I will just replace the disk.
  5. Thanks for responding, Lennart. Yes, I only use Retrospect for archiving. The original projects on the computer were deleted once they were archived on each of two media sets. Media set A has 6 members. Before replacing it, I did want to test and see if the troubled drive is just suffering from something fixable with reformatting. It is a 2TB drive with two partitions (one empty). Lennart, I anxiously await your guidance before moving ahead on this. Thank you.
  6. My most recent disk member of set "A" used for archiving finished projects has failed. I would like to reformat it and replace all the files from another archive set "B". Would the best way to handle this be to mark the corrupt member as missing, then use the Copy Media Set Script using set "B" as source and the reformatted disk (name same as old member) as destination? Note: The bad disk only contained about 30-40 projects (57GB), each in its own named folder, so if I had a way of knowing what projects were on that disk, I could instead restore these folders from disk "B" and just archive them again. Any input would be much appreciated.
