6.5 crash with new hard drive


Recommended Posts

I have a Windows XP Pro machine runing the latest Retrospect 6.5 professional. I replaced the boot drive using a Seagate utilty to copy the boot partition to the new drive. Everything seems fine but now if I attempt an open file backup the computer simply reboots just as the backup starts. No errors in the Retrospect log or in the Windows log. It is like the reset button was pushed. Non open file backups work great. I have not tried doing any client backups.


I know that the open file backup does some low-level stuff to get at locked files. Is there a drive/sector/block map in Retrospect somewhere that needs to be updated for the new drive? I was considering an upgrade to 7.5 anyway for the Vista support. Would that help?
