So I've been using Retrospect 11.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.8.5. Here's what I've been encountering... First, I had no clue that you could simply recycle media sets if you were encountering issues with backups -- so rather than recycle them, I "deleted" them altogether and re-created media sets. I figured out a loophole, or so I presume, to maintain my naming conventions on tapes to keep proper organization and so I also don't look like a dingus... my tapes are named as such: 2014 A1, 2014 B1, 2014 C1, and so forth... So... I took a tape that was already named, SUCCESSFULLY RESTORED it locally, and tried to backup it to a newly named media set and I run into the issue of "No Files Need to be Copied." Instead of getting a backup of 1.03 TB, I get a backup of 4.5 MBs... or what have you. I've done this multiple times and yielded no success. I'm guessing it's a miscommunication within Retrospect. Here's a snapshot of the log from the backup.
Hello all! I have Retrospect 10.5 running on Mac OSX Sever and we have just a single LTO4 Tape drive hooked up. We do all manual backups by just choosing folders and backing them up to tape. Everything has been working fine until the 10.5 update and now when I try to do a backup, I always get the "needs media" error anywhere from 20% to 90% of the completed file copied to the tape. I am only trying to put about 400gb to a tape that is supposed to hold 800gb. I have tried doing a smaller backup, changed tapes, checked the hard drives, etc and nothing is working. Any advice would be very much appreciated. THANKS so much in advance! Steve
