Retrospect 8.5 crashed hard, and corrupted the configXX.dat file over the weekend. I tried restoring this, but was unsuccesful. I had to obtain the product license keys and basically start over with everything.


There are only 2 backup sets (servers, and servers2)

backup set "servers" was recycled before the crash, and only backed up for about 2 hours (meaning it only has 2 hours worth of backup data altogether)

backup set "servers2" seems to still be intact and as it was (meaning all of the .rdb files are still in their original location)


I succesfully recataloged "servers" with no issues. However when I perform the same steps on "servers2" I get the error message: "The Backup Set data file name is invalid, cannot recatalog the set using these files"


Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Did Retrospect say that the catalog file for 'servers2' needed rebuilding? Unless the catalog file was in use at the time of the crash it should have survived intact.
