Repeated requests to create disaster recovery disc

Recommended Posts

Every time I do a back up, Retrospect asks me to create a disaster recovery disk. It started happening after I purchased the dissimilar hardware option for version 9 and the message continues in version 10.

 

I have created several disaster recovery discs, the latest last week, but the message continues to appear and Retrospect will not exit until I cancel that request.

 

How do I get rid of it once and for all?

 

Retrospect 10 on Windows 7 x64.

Is no one else having this problem, or is it that no one has a fix?

 

Never been prompted to create a Disaster Recovery disk. Could be a corrupt 'config77.dat' configuration file. Only way to fix this (as Retrospect provides no repair utility) is to delete it and create your configuration again from scratch.

You can first try using the 'config77.bak' file and see if that fixes your problem.  If that does not then you will need to delete both 'config77.dat' files and create your configuration from scratch.
