jkbull Posted April 13, 2005 Report Share Posted April 13, 2005 When workstation security settings are to be saved, Retrospect issues warnings/errors about files/folders that have been selected to be excluded from the backup. And I think it issues errors/warnings about excluded files if a snapshot is being created, too. This is a real pain. I really don't care about problems with items I'm not backing up. I only care about problems with items I am backing up. Has anyone written a script or program which can scan the Retrospect log and filter out the messages about items that aren't being backed up? I guess what I have in mind is a script/program that takes a time range and reports only on "real" problems that occurred in that time range. (Using, for example, a text file of rules -- maybe regular expressions? -- of what to exclude.) I could use this to send myself an email at the end of the overnight backup telling me if any "real" problems occurred. That way I wouldn't have to check the logs manually.
