AndyA Posted November 11, 2006 Report Share Posted November 11, 2006 I'm using Retrospect 7.5.324, hotfix 188.8.131.52 under Windows 2000 SP4 (fully patched) with a Quantum DLT-V4 tape drive. In Activity Monitor | Events, the following error is logged: Category: Backup Set Device trouble: "1-backup_set_name_here", error -102 (trouble communicating) ... where "backup_set_name_here" is the name of my backup set. If I insert that member in the drive, it is recognized in Configure | Devices | Status as "1-backup_set_name_here". The member contains data from one run of a Normal backup. The data is readable and can be verified (compared) to the source. I am also able to restore data from that member, so it appears to be in working order. The tape is very far from being filled, with roughly 150 GB of the 160+ GB capacity remaining. However, if I try to execute a normal backup, the script will ask for a new or blank member, "2-backup_set_name_here". Why is Retrospect asking for a new member? How can I get Retrospect to consider the tape as a legitimate member of the backup set with ample remaining capacity? Has this tape been damaged beyond repair, necessitating a quick erase?
