  1. Well, Retrospect 10.5 very old and is not supported on such new version of Windows 10. So, most likely will your problem go away by upgrading.
  2. Yes, I understand that. Or maybe I should have used the sad smiley? Agreed.
  3. I'm not familiar with how storage group works. Do they by default use a lot of activity threads simultaneously? For old style activities, using (say) Disk media sets, Retrospect uses one activity thread per activity. As a workaround to your problem, you could set an activity to specifically use thread 1, another thread 2 and so on. And NOT let any activity use "Any activity thread". That way you could limit the number of threads actually used. By the way, this forum is mainly user-to-user. You need to request support here: https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/edition
  4. Tried restarting the Mac itself after setting a lower number of activity threads?
  5. That was my next suggestion. I don't know where you live, but here in Sweden it's about bed time, so Good Night.
  6. I think the key is this: Note: OS X System Integrity Protection may prevent the restoration of protected files and folders to ANOD0015. Try turning it off and see if it helps. NOTE: Turn it on again after the restore. https://www.imore.com/how-turn-system-integrity-protection-macos You must also give Retrospect Full Disk Access: https://www.retrospect.com/en/support/kb/macos_full_disk_access A bit puzzling is the actual error that says invalid file system data as that might indicate there is something wrong with the file system on ANOD0015. What kind of restore are you performing? Have you tried "Restore selected files and folders"?
  7. Can we see the whole log, please? It isn't clear in what stage of the process you get the error.
  8. If it is "blank", then that might be your problem. It has to be formatted and (as David points out) in the correct format.
  9. I think tape stations always have hardware compression. I don't even think you can turn it off (in Retrospect). So trying to turn on software compression is useless, I'm afraid.
  10. That's bad. One workaround would be to schedule both the backup and the transfer to the same execution unit. Then the backup will have to wait for the transfer to finish (or vice versa).
  11. I think Retrospect will wait for the transfer to finish. You don't even have to update the scripts. Just use the "New Backup Set" backup (or transfer) as outlined here, and Retrospect will update the script for you: https://www.retrospect.com/en/documentation/user_guide/win/fundamentals#backup-actions
  12. "Archive" is not a "Copy" and not a "Backup". "Archive" does indeed remove the originals after the copy is done. Only "Backup" uses media sets.
  13. BEWARE that if you happen to lose the originals 10 seconds after you recycled, you better have another backup.
  14. It does NOT. It deletes the unwanted files from the DESTINATION, so both the source and the destination contains the same files. No more, no less.
  15. Did version 6 do this differently? (I mean was able to have multiple sources on a Copy?)
