Using Retrospect Desktop version 188.8.131.52 on a Windows 10 Pro PC (10.0.18363) with all latest updates installed. I'm trying to restore some images from a particular directory. In particular all images ending in *.nef that are found in two subdirectories. The image below shows my backup set (Archive_Drive) and the path to those 'nef' files from the most recent snapshot (6-27-2020): The system path is 'D:\Data\Greg\Pictures\2016\2016-04-01 - Watercolor'. The system path is 'D:\Greg\Pictures\2016\2016-04-01 - Watercolor'. I used the option 'Restore --> Find Files' to select the 'nef' files in subdirectories within the above path. Here is my search criteria: I have the option to check this selector against my "D:\" drive and I do: This is the same path that is found in the 'Archive' backup set in the first image. It finds 69 'nef' files in 2 folders. I click on 'OK' in my searching and retrieval dialog box. Retrospect searches my Archive_Drive backup set and 0 files are found: I also tested this search by creating the same selector as above and the selector finds the 'nef' files. I've rebuilt the catalog file from disk. I've checked (windows) permissions on my drive and folders. I don't think it would, but would an upgrade to 17 fix this? Are there any other options to 'fix' the backup set? Thanks for any help. Greg
It would appear that the search function on the Sources page (accessed by clicking on the drop-down plus sign at the right of the toolbar) can only access the top level of the sources list; you cannot, for example, search for volume names, favorite folders, etc. that are on client machines. Is the search function really that pathetically limited, or am I missing something? I'm using Retrospect 15.0 and have not used this particular search in earlier versions.
I am trying the demo of Mac Retrospect 11.5 and have a question regarding the Restore>"Search for files in selected media sets" search functions. The ANY, NONE, & ALL pop-up choices do not seem to work as expected (selecting one and having it "stick"), or as they typically work in other applications. Even with using the Option key and clicking the different + buttons it doesn't appear possible to set my searches as needed. I'm hoping this is just a problem of understanding on my part. For example, how would you set Retrospect to search for any of several file names (ANY), and limit results (ALL) to those found with file names ending in ".tif"? The pop-ups do not allow a choice of the proper term, though nothing is grayed out as if unavailable. It seems illogical. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Mavericks 10.9.5
Cromlech posted a topic in Retrospect 9 or higher for MacintoshHi all This is probably the dumbest, most basic question of all time...but this driving me up the wall. Coming from R6, I'm used to being able to do easy multiple criteria searches of archive data prior to restores. In the current case I want to execute the following 'search and restore': I want to find and restore only the ".jpg" files that I archived in any folders that ended in "11-11" (ie: any jpegs that I archived in the month of November 2011). Using the Search For Files & Folders To Restore option in R9, I'd have expected to build a search as follows: Find files and folders where ALL of the following are true: Folder > Name > Ends With > 11-11 File > Name > Ends With > .jpg My problem? For the love of little green apples I can't get the ALL option to stick: it keeps resetting to ANY. Any suggestions? Also - and pushing the boat out further - is there anyway of displaying a figure for the number of files that are about to be restored? Again, R6 used to do this.... All help appreciated.
