mevans Posted April 13, 2008 Report Share Posted April 13, 2008 Using Retrospect Desktop version 6.0.193 on an iMac running 10.3.9. I use the Backup button from the Immediate tab of the Retrospect Directory, only backing-up the individual user accounts to DVD-RW media, so no system files or applications are backed-up. Recently the iMac's hard drive started to die. I cloned the hard drive to an external drive and had the iMac's hard drive replaced. I then cloned the external drive's contents back to the iMac's new internal drive. I didn't realize that Retrospect looked for a particular volume to backup based on more information than just the volume's name. When I attempted to do an incremental backup with an existing backup set, Retrospect said the volume to backup was unavailable and to insert it and try again. Is there any way to convince Retrospect that the new drive has the same directory structure as the old drive and to continue its incremental backups as before without having to perform a complete backup?
