  1. I am reporting this early because it may be a serious bug, but I have not yet verified that I have not caused this with pilot error. My situation is that I want to continue to manage my backups as I always have, with a backup media set for each month, and then each month start a new set. With Retro 9, this is not possible. There is no way that I can see to do what I did in Retro 6, which is "create new backup set", effectively creating a new set, with all the scripts that used the old set now using the new one. Instead, what I do is run a media set copy operation to "mediaxx_last" every month, with the "reset on successful copy" option set. I tried this August first "by hand", and it worked fine, so for Sept 1st, I set up scripts to do this. What I see is that my "mediaxx_last" sets have only the most recent snapshots in them. I expect to see the most recent snapshots in the "backups" tab under "media sets", with the "retrieve" button revealing the full set. In the script, I have ""copy backups", "media verification", "data compression", and "recycle after success" enabled. The other options are disabled (match source, don't add dups, match only in same location, and eject tapes) I am thinking this is not likely to be pilot error because I run a similar script on several media sets, and one of the larger and more important sets seems to have worked fine, and several others are "truncated". I will be digging into this to figure out what went wrong, but would appreciate any feedback from anyone else who has used these features.
