Not allowing to restore to folder when using selec


Recommended Posts

OK quick overview of my setup then i'll dive into my hiccup




using Retrospect Backup Server 5.6


using HP ultrium-1 SCSI (200GB)




i have a backup which i performed of a machine over the network when i go to the reports and list the contents for that backup, i choose the files or folders i wish to restore. Then hit the retrieve button or right click and click on retrieve. It opens up the restore window. and it has listed the destination as a certain machine (the wrong one) when i change the destination it says that it will destroy my selection criteria if i say ok. I say ok because i figure i can reselect the files. However it then goes and gives me a wierd selection criteria like files which match the word read. and it refuses to use the files i had previously selected.




Any thoughts.

i could only get it to reproduce once on a very specific backup set.


After running a couple of backups (1 recycle, 2 normals) i tried the


bakup set again and it worked as normal. I can no longer duplicate this


problem myself.




When it was occuring what it would do is i would go in to reports and


then into contents under the specific backup i chose the files from the


browser then clicked on teh retrieve button it would pop up the restore


window i would notice that the estination was some machine on my


network, but not the one i wished to restore to. I changed the


destination and it would reset my selection criteria. It seemed to set


it to my last used selection criteria for a restore. I then went in and


deleted the client that it was trying to restore to. It changed to a


different machine but again when i tried to point it to the correct


destination it reset my selection criteria.
