This error is coming up for no rythme or reason. I watched the jobs and the processor is not spikeing and there is plenty of memory available. The page file is set as high as I can and I have a gig of memory in the server. There is only one job running at a time.

If anyone has had this error rear its ugly head please let me know. I haven't gotten any good backups out of Retrospect in weeks and have resorted to using 2000 to make my backups.

I had a similar problem when using 6.5. It had worked fine for 2-3 years then started to get errors as you describe. For me, the problem turned out to too many files. It was not the amount or size being backed up, it was the number of small files. We had grown to about 1.2 million files and that seemed to be the problem. Upgrading to 7.5 fixed it. 7.5 on Windows can handle at least 4 million, I think.

 

Now I have a new problem but not as bad. Not enough memory to process open file backup.
