Mysterious Rename of Media


Recommended Posts

I had a tape inserted in my drive that was named "1-Daily Backup." A couple of nights ago, Retrospect suddenly decided that the tape was now named "2-Daily Backup," and asked for the first one. I have not changed the tape, and there is no one else here. Spooky, huh? Just in case I'm going completely mad, I checked to see if there are any more tapes lying around with a similar name, but this is not the case (I only own 5 tapes altogether, and I checked the other 4 - old backups from differently named backup sets). Anyone got any ideas???

 

 

 

Mac OS X 10.1.4, Retrospect 5.0.205, Imation Travan 20 GB Firewire drive.

If Retrospect erases or renames a tape, it will note this in the Operations log.

 

 

 

From Configure > Backup Sets, check that backup set's "Members" tab - have any been set missing?

 

 

 

Are you doing normal, recycle, or new media backups?

 

 

 

Try quitting Retrospect, ejecting the tape, and then restarting the computer. Start Retrospect, go to Configure > Devices and insert the tape. How does the tape drive report the name of the tape?
