alan_gomes Posted July 4, 2002 Report Share Posted July 4, 2002 I have a bit of confusion about the way Retrospect stores snapshots. I am backing up my laptop computer to a firewire hard drive. Therefore, I am creating what is called a file backup set, which is stored on the firewire drive. The backup works just fine. However, after I perform an incremental backup, the previous snapshot is overwritten and replaced with the new snapshot. Thus, whenever I look at the properties of the backup set, it will show the number of backup sessions but only show one snapshot, namely, the last one. My understanding is that Retrospect should keep the older snapshots available in case I wanted to restore my drive to the state it was in at an earlier backup. Presently, I can only restore my system to the state of its last backup, as represented by the latest and only snapshot in the backup set. Do I have something configured wrong?
