Client Issue


Recommended Posts

Hello Again experts!


I know that I can expect a few drop outs when I try to back up from Clients across a wireless network but what I would like to ask is:


1. What does Retrospect make of Catalogues when a backup stops before it has chance to build a catalogue?


2. Can the files that were backed up before an interruption be seen and used?


3. Are there any verification issues?


Thanks folks!

If the connection to the client drops out mid-backup, no snapshot will be created and no verification will take place. If you have Retrospect 7.5, then whatever files had been copied over should have a md5 descriptor, and might be checked in media verification, however I haven't tried it out and can't say for sure. You should be able to restore these files using the Find Files restore.


What nembot says is incorrect, since sourse/destination comparison is based on snapshots, and no snapshot is created for files copied before the connection failure, then any files that had been copied will be re-copied during the next backup.
