Does the Retrospect Client have to be run "as administrator" on Vista?


Recommended Posts

Just noticed this (and wondered if it was a "just me" issue...)


I back up my Vista clients (7.5.116) with a Mac server.


Client user (under an "administrator" account on the Vista box) added a directory/folder with movies to the "access" tab of the client to mark them "private". Directory was still there in the client after subsequent reboots.


The Mac server still saw this folder. It was not private.


User then opened the client "as administrator" -- and the folder he added was no longer there? So he readded it ("as administrator", remember). Subsequent reboots of the computer and reopening of the client (again) saw the directory listed in "access" tab as private.


This time, the Mac server did not see the folder. As expected.



Does Vista require the client be opened "as administrator" to have the private access stick?
