Locked Retrospect file on iPod preventing backup

Recommended Posts




I am having a problem backing up a Mac Powerbook G4 ( 10.2 ) to an iPod 15 gb

( as a firewire device ).


Here are the steps:

Using an immediate backup to backup the user folder contents to iPod..

Worked fine, Retrospect renamed the iPod to the Backup set name and

created the backup.


I then used an easyscript to create a daily routine.


On all subsequent tries, something ( Retrospect or Mac OSX ) is locking

the backup file on the iPod.


If I unmount/remount the iPod, ' get info ' on the file,

unlock it and run the easyscript, everythings OK.

Just an inconvienance every time I backup.


Any suggestions, work-a-rounds ?
