One of my backups failed on doing a recycle backup, with the error. But it got worse from there: ALL of the drive contents got deleted! All the contents of the drive contained other Retrospect backups, so not just the one backup file, but all others were somehow deleted by this recycle action. I manually stopped the backup and checked the drive. The drive checked good in Disk Utility. No apparently failures. Just to be sure, I erased the drive and checked it. All OK. This is the log of the event: + Recycle backup using Bi-Weekly Mac Mini_Seagate 4TB12_3x at 6/6/22, 22:00:00 (Activity Thread 1) 6/6/22 22:00:00: Finished scanning backup set data files To Backup Set MacMini_Seagate 4TB_12... 6/6/22 22:00:00: Recycle backup: The Backup Set was reset Warning: volume Seagate 4TB_12 has the "Ignore ownership" setting enabled. - 6/6/22 22:00:00: Copying Seagate 4TB_12 6/6/22 22:02:59: Found: 822960 files, 84614 folders, 3.1 TB 6/6/22 22:03:01: Finished matching 6/6/22 22:03:03: Selector "All Files" was used to select 822,960 files out of 822,960. 6/6/22 22:03:06: Copying: 822960 files (3.1 TB) and 0 hard links 6/6/22 22:03:08: Finished scanning backup set data files [*] ArcDisk::arcExportSessionFile: unexpected value of ArcCatalog::m_lastvol 0; can not write session file 6/7/22 22:30:26: Execution stopped by operator Remaining: 822,960 files, 3.1 TB Completed: 0 files, 0 B Performance: 0 MB/minute Duration: 1:00:30:25 (1:00:29:57 idle/loading/preparing) [*] ArcDisk::arcExportSessionFile: unexpected value of ArcCatalog::m_lastvol 0; can not write session file Recovery was simply to remake the catalog (same name and other parameters) and start over. Backup works for now. I am using an alternate backup application until/if this ever gets figured out. First time for this error for me. I've read about this error here in Windows applications. Including a screen shot of the current (restored) media set members as it completes the first repaired backup. Any ideas?
Retrospect 8.5 crashed hard, and corrupted the configXX.dat file over the weekend. I tried restoring this, but was unsuccesful. I had to obtain the product license keys and basically start over with everything. There are only 2 backup sets (servers, and servers2) backup set "servers" was recycled before the crash, and only backed up for about 2 hours (meaning it only has 2 hours worth of backup data altogether) backup set "servers2" seems to still be intact and as it was (meaning all of the .rdb files are still in their original location) I succesfully recataloged "servers" with no issues. However when I perform the same steps on "servers2" I get the error message: "The Backup Set data file name is invalid, cannot recatalog the set using these files" Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Is there a report that shows how much space within a backup set a given client is using? I can't seem to find anything in the documentation. The operations log shows how much data was backed up during a specific backup session but it doesn't say what the total space used across all sessions in a backup set is.
