Guest Posted March 8, 2003 Report Share Posted March 8, 2003 I'm running Retrospect server 5.0.238 on OS X and I'm trying to backup a Win2k machine using Retrospect client 5.0.540. The windows machine has about 3GB of data that needs to be backed up, while the backup set has room for about 50GB. The problem is that when I try to backup the machine, retrospect says I need 625GB to do so. I installed Retrospect a few months ago and uninstalled it because I didn't need it. Now I need it again so I reinstalled Retrospect and logged it in with no problems. I suspect there's some hidden/invisible file on the windows machine that's telling retrospect that the machine has 625GB to be backed up. This would obviously be a corrupt file that's preventing me from backing up the system. Any suggestions? David p.s. I've had similar experiences where retrospect wouldn't backup because of a corrupt hidden file. The only way I knew how to fix it was to use NAV's view invisible files and delete it from there.
