  1. Hello! Can anyone tell me how to pull a single file/folder out of a backup set without having to restore it to the original computer? Every other way of getting files involves restoring to the original computer on the network which isn't necessarily what I need to do. I'm running Retrospect Workgroup 5 on a Mac OS 9.2 computer. Thanks! phantom21
  2. Hello all, I have a slight problem with Retrospect Workgroup edition 5 for Mac OS 9.2. It started about a week ago when Retrospect suddently stopped backing up the network computers due to insufficient memory. The exact message in the log is "error -108 (not enough memory)". I put in an extra 256 MB of RAM into the server and the problem went away until yesterday when the same error message resurfaced. Does anyone know what causes this problem and how to solve it? Thanks, phantom21
  3. Quote: Quote: I thought Retrospect was supposed to automatically detect un-backed-up laptops on the network and start but it doesn't seem to want to do it here. This will only occur if you are running an active Backup Server script that is actively looking for clients. The client cannot call the server - the server seeks out available clients. Can you give me a quick run through on how to set up such a script? I thought I had mine set up that way, back-up server is always running but it always says "inactive" until the scheduled time to back-up. I didn't know you had to set up something separate for roaming laptops? Thanks, phantom21
  4. Hello all =) I'm having a little trouble backup up a laptop on the network here. I'm running Workgroup version 5 on a network with mixed PCs and Macs. The problem is with a certain Mac Titanium G4 laptop running OS 9.1. I have the latest client version installed on it and it connects to the network via Appletalk. Retrospect sees the laptop (I can see it being detected in the clients menu) but when I toggle the client software to back-up immediately, it doesn't do it. Retrospect is set on a back-up server that is scheduled to automatically back-up every night. But since the laptop's user has to take her laptop home every night, the only way to get it backed up is if she can connect it to the network and command it to back-up immediately. I thought Retrospect was supposed to automatically detect un-backed-up laptops on the network and start but it doesn't seem to want to do it here. I've updated everyone on Retrospect with exception of the new driver recently announced. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Thanks, phantom21
  5. I couldn't find out what the execution errors are. The operations log give no notes on her computer's backup status or even mentions anything about her computer. That's the really weird part. I also know that there's no data being saved because I checked the backup set contents and could not find her computer's data anywhere. Is there some other place I should be looking for the execution errors? Thanks, phantom21
  6. Hello all, I'm running Workgroup 5.0 on a mixed Mac/PC network. One of my Windows clients does not properly backup it's contents. It's running Windows XP Pro with client 5.6 while my server is running Mac OS 9.2.2. What's happening is that I get this message: 12/18/2002 12:42 AM Script “Primary Workgrou…” (Administrator):DRIVEC(CJ, 4 execution errors. The client software install went perfectly as well as the Workgroup install. When I check on the client from the server, it's reponding along with the other clients but it doesn't back up any data whatsoever. I checked preferenced on both ends and they seem to be ok. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks, Phantom21
  7. Just an update! Apparently the old installation of 4.2 was still existant in the computer and the alias on the desktop was still linked to such. I found the new installation of 5.0 in another folder and so deleted the old alias and created a new one off 5.0. I also made another alias of that and put it in the start up folder and it seems to be working just fine now. Thanks for the tips! I just wish Retrospect would hold off the shutdown sequence on Windows clients like it does Macs for convenience at the end of the day. Thanks, phantom21
  8. The server itself shows up as version 4.2. I see it when I start Retrospect by double-clicking it's desktop icon. It's very strange that it wouldn't be the newest version that I installed. I'll try your idea and see if it flies. Thanks! phantom21
  9. Hi Slawomir, I think I understand what you're saying. The backup server itself is starting up as 4.2, the client software on each of the other computers are 5.0. So how would I change the Startup Item on my server so that Retrospect 5.0 starts up? Thanks, phantom
  10. Hello, I recently upgraded from Retrospect Backup version 4.2 (for macs) to version 5.0 Workgroup (for macs). I've imported my preferences, updated my client software (very cool through the network utility) and recently started up my backup server to backup clients over the network. Here's the hangup, the backup works up until it hits about the 2 gigabyte mark (according to the log) and then quits. I upgraded to the Workgroup edition to avoid this kind of storage problem. Here's the kicker, despite updating the Retrospect Backup software on my file server, it still shows itself as version 4.2. Is there something I'm missing here? I'm runnng Mac OS 9.1 with a partitioned hard drive (over 40GB allocated to Retrospect). Thanks, Phantom21
  11. Whoops, sorry I thought this for was 9.x. Please disregard as I am moving this inquiry to the correct forum. Thanks, Phantom21
