Retrospect v9.0.2 Mac OSX 10.10.5 I have a Source Folder with Job Folders in ... I have a Destination Folder with Job Folders in ... I want Retrospect to only Copy the most recent, changed, up-to-date versions of Files from the Source Folder to the Destination Folder. In other words, update the Destination Folder with the Source Folders content. Some Files in the Destination Folders will be overwritten with never versions. Some Folders in the Destination Folder will be untouched. Some Folders In the Destination Folder will be newly created as they are not originally in the Destination Folder. Nothing will be deleted from the Source Folder. SO ... What Script should I use? Can I manually OK it before it Runs? Thank you, JamesR
fredturner posted a topic in Retrospect 9 or higher for MacintoshI've been wondering this for a long time now, but have never figured it out or gotten around to asking here. So, I have a site w/ numerous clients, all added to a Proactive script that has 3 sets for its destinations: Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. When I look at Activities > Proactive > Destination column, I see 1 of these 3 sets next to each entry. However, I may have Set Bravo connected (like now), yet some of the clients show the Destination as Set Alpha. Why? So, even if the client is in need of backing up (every 24 hrs) and says Destination is Set Alpha, since I have Set Bravo connected, it won't back up. Some questions about this aspect of the Proactive scripts: 1. How is Retrospect determining the set it lists under Destination? 2. Is there any way to manually change the set (w/o some crazy cheat or workaround, I mean)? 3. Is there any way to "nudge" Retrospect to go ahead and back up a client when I know it is now connected, active, and has a suitable backup set available***? *** = I just watched it take 20+ minutes to start backing up a machine that hadn't backed up in weeks, despite clicking Schedule and setting it for the current time. In the meantime, another overdue spare MacBook that I woke up to also back up went back to sleep. Just seems like this should be quicker, or at least able to be hurried along while I'm in the Console. Thanks, Fred P.S. This is on v13 Multi Server, but also occurs on many other installations I support from v10.5 thru v13.
