  1. >except that my experience with the -530 bug several years ago shows that Tech Support is normally not allowed to submit a bug to the engineers unless Tech Support can reproduce it on their own system. This is 100% false. If support believes the issue is a bug, it will be submitted as a bug. In no way does tech support have to reproduce a bug themselves. >that's why I have out-and-out said that using Storage Groups for Retrospect Mac is not a good idea That is a choice you can make for yourself, but we have 1000's of customers successfully using Storage Groups on local disk backup sets and cloud backup sets.
  2. >Source disk image When you see disk image, are you talking about .dmg files or do you mean the actual mounted disk? Are you using a backup script or a copy media set script? Maybe consider posting a screenshot of what you are seeing. You may also want to just contact support directly and we can try to help.
  3. We have released version 18.1, which contains a lot of bug fixes. Please give that version a try. If you still have trouble, please contact support directly. Configuring Retrospect to remember the password for an encrypted backup set does not apply to a catalog rebuild. If the password is not accepted during a catalog rebuild attempt, it typically means something is wrong with the password being entered. You might see the same error during a restore attempt. The catalog rebuild process reads the header of the .rdb file to identify if it is encrypted and when the password is not accepted, it means the decryption attempt failed.

    We have confirmed this is a bug and we plan to fix the problem in an upcoming release.
  9. The Windows user's guide is at: https://www.retrospect.com/en/documentation/user_guide/win
  10. When working with One Drive, you must uncheck the Files on Demand option in OneDrive before Retrospect can see that data. With the box checked, the data lives in the cloud and not on your computer.

    Forum login uses HTTP, not HTTPS?

    On signing in, even though I used an HTTPS url for forums.retrospect.com, I get a security warning from Firefox saying the login will occur over HTTP, and the forum site indeed uses HTTP.
