8.0 (199) - Assertion failure during grooming


Recommended Posts

I manage some Retrospect backup sets with a size of about 14 TB. These are in use since Version 7.7. With December 2012 I changed to V8.0 - now the disaster:


The monthly grooming ended with Assertion failure at "grx.cpp-1089". Then Retrospect (running unattended) started again and retried finishing grooming and failed again. - So there was no script started for about some weeks - no error was reported (mailed). When I recognized this problem I tried to rebuild the catalog - seemed to work fine until the next backup-script started - when trying to update the catalog it complained: Error -1100 (invalid Handle) and ended with a corrupted catalog - this behavior is reproducible.


I tried to reproduce it with some ne (small) backup sets - created with V8.0 - it shows the same effect.


Up to now I trusted Retrospect and recommend it to my customers.

There is a known issue with Retrospect 8.0 when grooming Backup sets created with Retrospect 7.7. This will be fixed in Retrospect 8.1. See the following knowledge base article for more information:




You will need to decide whether you want to run the per-release version or wait for the release version.
