Disk Images

Recommended Posts

Can't remember if this has been discussed in the past, did a quick search of the current forum but didn't find anything. When a drive dies and needs to be restored I like to restore the backup to a disk image on the computer running the software V6 or Engine V8 and then use the disk image for a migration to the new hard drive running with current system software. With Version 6 this worked fine. I have checked two different servers running Retrospect 8.2 399 engine, one an intel xServe running 10.4.11 (I know I'm working on an upgrade but need to move other software running on the xServe to later versions first) and a Mac Pro running 10.6.4 server software. I can create a sparse disk image (10.4.11) or a sparse bundle disk image (10.6.4) and mount them on their respective computers. Need to stop and start the engine for Retrospect to see the mounted disk images. On the xServe it disappears from the sources list in a matter of minutes. On the Mac Pro it takes a little longer, not sure how long since I wasn't watching it constantly, but it also lost track of the disk image. The disk images are still mounted on the desktop of the computers running the engine but Retrospect just looses track of them.


Is this a known issue which is going to be corrected or has it not been discussed before.
