Turning on grooming turns on catalog compression


Recommended Posts



I think this intentional.


When you turn on grooming, Retrospect keeps snapshots in the catalog file based on the grooming policy. As a result the catalog can get really huge. Compression is enabled to deal with that.


FWIW older versions of Retrospect moved all but the most recent snapshot to the backup media in order to keep the catalog small/save disk space.

I'm pretty sure it's not intentional. For one thing, I haven't seen it and I intentionally keep them uncompressed. (Compression sometimes just takes too long.)


What I have seen is password save option change. In fact, it essentially impossible for me to save password for scripted access in backup set that has been groomed. They keep reverting back to password entry required.


It's possible we are seeing different manifestations of the same bug.
