Member lost / damaged problem

Recommended Posts

We've got a disk to disk to tape backup schema, and our current disk backup sets span two members.


I recently had the second member of a backup set fail, so I marked it as lost / damaged, and said "skip this member", installed a new disk and added it as a third member of the set. Fine- it looks like the backups picked up where they left off, and I'm trusting that it re-backed up the files that were on the failed drive.


However, when I went to do a tape transfer of most recent snapshots, Retrospect prompted me to provide the missing / failed member, and since I could not provide it the script terminated.


It seems to me that if a member is marked as missing / unavailable, it should never be requested. Or am I doing something wrong? We're running 7.5.508 single server on windows xp.
