Fast catalog rebuild option missing from disk media sets

Recommended Posts

I'm using Retrospect for Mac OS 10.12.6 and I don't have the option to enable or disable fast catalog rebuilds on my disk based media sets under Options because it doesn't show up at all. Grooming is not and has never been enabled for any of the disk media sets. Has this been removed and the documentation is incorrect or should I be able to turn it on for existing disk media sets?

This is from the Retrospect 14 user guide. 


Note: Retrospect has a feature, found in the Options tab of a Media Set, called Fast Catalog Rebuild where, every time it starts a tape after the first in a Media Set, it writes the current Catalog to the beginning of that tape. This speeds rebuilding of the Catalog by only requiring the last piece of media belonging to the Tape Media Set to be scanned by Retrospect. The Fast Catalog Rebuild option can also be used on Disk Media Sets that don’t have grooming turned on.
