Generated MD5 digest for file does not match stored MD5 digest.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


We are running

- Multi Server Version 7.5.370

- Driver Update and Hot Fix version


- Windows 2003 Web Edition SP1 Version 5.2

Server Hardware is

- HP Proliant ML310 G4, tape drive is HP LTO Ultrium-2 Drive SCSI Revision S53D


The problem is that I am running a backup and the following error is reported after the backup is complete:


" Generated MD5 digest for file "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Retrospect\RtrExec.dir\Exec\State\MetaInfo\writer0001\comp0000\file0003" does not match stored MD5 digest.



This error comes up at the Verification stage of the backup. We are doing just a Media Verification for this backup, and when we run a thorough verification no error is reported.


I might add that this error does not occur everytime a media verification is done. For instance yesterday's backup completed successfully without the error, but today's didn't.


For what reasons does this error get reported. Obviously there is a verification problem, but why? or what is causing it?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
