mjbolzan Posted March 25, 2008 Report Share Posted March 25, 2008 When i back up, the scanning of the time machine volume has just started throwing the error message Scanning incomplete, error -108 (not enough memory). This error seems wrong on its face. it also causes the backup to be incomplete so all the devices re-scan and are re-backed up until the backup server window closes. I have Retrospect version 6.1.138 running on a MacBook Pro 15", 2.4 GHz, 4 GB RAM. OS X 10.5.2. 320 GB internal volume partitioned into 3, all backed up. all programs are shut down. I backup to file sets on firewire drives. I use backup server scrips. the firewire disks are "400 GB" disks partitioned into 2 volumes with the backup partition being 342 GB. I have attached to the computer another firewire drive which contains time machine backups--all 3 internal partitions backed up there. I have excluded the time machine volume from the backup. (By the way, is anyone else irritated that when excluding a volume, retrospect still scans the entire volume?) the time machine volume has been attached for months. current stats are-- capacity: 435.5 GB (device is partitioned) used: 257.8 GB available: 177.7 GB Any solutions?
