  1. Hi, I have the latest Retrospect Desktop with the latest RDU running on a PB 1.5 Ghz with OS 10.4.3. I am using the Apple OEM UJ-845E drive which supposedly is supported with the latest RDU. I am using single layer DVD-R (TKD and Philips). I can do a backup & compare to a single DVD-R just fine. But when I back up two volumes with enough data to span two DVDs Retrospect backs up and compares the first volume just fine, then backs up the second volume and then asks for the first DVD to start the compare of the second volume (which is partially on the first DVD). At that point it refuses to recognize the first DVD and just reports "Incompatible" in the device dialog. I have tried this twice with two different DVD-R brands, both times with the same results. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks, -- Terrence
  2. OK, I tried that just now and the correct number of files gets selected when I go straight to "Backup", so this seems to be an issue with "Preview". However, once the backup starts with the files selected Retrospect runs into the "Assertion check at memory.c-776" (see my other post). -- Terrence
  3. I am running Retrospect Desktop 5.0.205 on Mac OS X 10.2.1. I have found that about 50% of the time the "All Files" selector results in no files being selected. Re-selecting the sector and re-running "Preview" often fixes the issue and all files are selected. However, the behavior is kind of random and this is irritating since each "Preview" run takes approx. 5 Minutes (due to the large disk size). Any help is greatly appreciated. -- Terrence
  4. I am running Retrospect Desktop 5.0.205 on a Mac OS X 10.2.1 PowerBook. I am trying to back up my entire internal drive to a file in a directory mounted from another Mac OS X 10.2.1 machine. I select my entire internal drive as the volume to back up, create a Backup Set in the mounted directory, and choose the "All Files" selector. After hitting "Preview" my internal drive gets scanned and 35000 folders and 130000 files are found. The backup progress dialog shows up and just before the backup gets underway the "Assertion check at memory.c-776" occurs. I have tried this several times with rebooting between tries and it occurs 100% of the time. However, if I select only a subvolume (not the entire internal disk) for backup the assertion error does not occur and the backup succeeds. I have seen other posts mention this problem but I have not seen a solution or workaround. At this point Retrospect is pretty much useless for me as I cannot back up my entire internal disk. Any help is greaty appreciated. Thanks, -- Terrence
