Need to free up hard drive space

Recommended Posts

If you're talking about a file backup set, your primary solutions are either to recycle the backup set and use the same volume, or (if you have another volume available), do a New Media backup set to the new volume.


I haven't tried this myself, but I'd expect it should also be possible to copy both the data and .cat files to a larger volume, point Retrospect to the new destination, and keep going.


If you're talking about just the catalog portion of a removable disk, tape, DVD, etc. backup set, you could definitely copy the catalog to a larger volume.


No matter what type of backup set, though you can't delete parts of the backup data; it's all or nothing.
