No, I have Block level turned off.  These are just mp3's files, so they are pretty small files.  I'm backing up my entire Users directory but it is always mp3's that fail to compare.  I am using Win 7 64 bit ultimate fully patched, 8 gig of RAM on dell xps 8300.  Retrospect is also latest 9.0.1 (110).  And it is happening both in Backups and Duplications


Here's an example

I've been using Retrospect for about 6 years.  I have seen backup sets get messed up every now and then but never duplications.  They have always been rock solid.
