catalog from mac to windows

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to recover data from a Retrospect 5 app. installed on a PC running Windows XP, from a catalog file created while the Retrospect was used on a G4 running 9.2?


I copied the Mac catalog file to the PC and it doesn't show in the Retrospect dialog box.

I would have hoped the catalog, as a simple index, would have been recognized by the PC.


Because of a faulty Dat drive using DDS3 tapes (4mm 12-24Gb), I have difficulty finding a refurbished Dat drive working on a Mac platform, while for PC, picking one is a breeze.


Comments anyone.

Of course no need to mention that we do backup to HD now.

Retrospect 5.x for Windows data is only readable by Retrospect 5.x or later for Windows. You can not use that data on a Macintosh.
