  1. The root of my APFS drive has a lot of "retropds.log.N.log.M.gz" files, each either 0 or 41 bytes in length. When uncompressed it's a 0 byte file. I have about 60 of these plus 6 "retroclient.log.N.gz" files. Owner is root, btw. (Where "N" is a single digit number, as is "M".) I'm guessing these are lock semaphores, but does anyone know? Disturbs my sense of esthetics and propriety to have these land in the root of the drive.
  2. I also have this log, which is one of many. I seldom see the "verified" count match the "copied" count. + Executing Weekly_VM3_rotate at 4/1/14 (Activity Thread 2) To Backup Set v9_vm3_last... 4/1/14 5:52:15 AM: Recycle backup: The Backup Set was reset - 4/1/14 5:52:15 AM: Transferring from v9_vm3 4/1/14 6:08:15 AM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 238126 files, 53.1 GB Performance: 3,491.3 MB/minute Duration: 00:15:59 (00:00:24 idle/loading/preparing) - 4/1/14 6:08:15 AM: Verifying v9_vm3_last 4/1/14 6:08:39 AM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 3181 files, 3.2 GB Performance: 8,139.7 MB/minute Duration: 00:00:24 This is a "Copy Media Set" script, and has "media verification" and "Data compression" set in the options. What's up with this? Why does it copy 53 GB and only verify what looks like a subset of the last snap? (Note that the file count on that snap is 4043 files. Where did the missing 862 files? (Retro 10.5, Mac OS X 10.8.5)
  3. For the life of me I can't figure out how to exclude certain file types (in my case, specifically, .DS_Store files) from restores from a tape media set. Any suggestions / solutions? I'm using Retrospect 9.0.2 Mac on Mac OSX Server 10.6.8 Cheers C
