Running Retrospect Express in Safe Mode


Recommended Posts

Just curious...has anyone tried running RE backups in Windows Safe Mode? It would seem that it would speed things up by not having all sorts of hidden active applications (e.g., antivirus, screen saver, etc.) running in the background. Might cut down on #107 (out of application memory) and #1020 (file sharing) error codes.


Is there any reason to not do a backup in Safe Mode?


I'm not necessarily planning on doing it but am just curious about the issue.

Safe mode is "safe" because it turns off many of the performance features in Windows. A backup in safe mode will actually be much slower than normal.


If you are worried about background applications use the MSconfig utility to turn them off while you run backups.
