are these error messages significant?


Recommended Posts

I just made the first backup with retrospect 7 using winxp backing up to a firewire hard drive. I used compression and verification. These error messages were in the log-


File "C:\WINDOWS\repair\Backup\BootableSystemState\Registry\system": didn't compare at offset 2,089,038 in stream "Data"

File "C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\msoeres.dll": didn't compare at offset 1,050,098 in stream "Data"

Are these important and if so what should be done? Thanks. ooo.gif

I did another backup and there were no errors. I assume this means the original errors were insignificant but why would they have occurred? Also the total size of the data backed up was 66 gigs to a firewire hard drive with compression and verification. The backup took 6 hours and the backup file was compressed to 60 gigs. Do these numbers sound right or was the backup slow? The performance was about 350 mg/min. Everything was turned off including antivirus software. If there is any way to speed this up I'd sure like to know how. Thanks. grin.gif
