RRyanP Posted August 18, 2008 Report Share Posted August 18, 2008 I used Retrospect with my laptop and created a backup set to backup my hard drive to an external drive. Low and behold, two weeks later, my hard drive dies, and I felt very proud of myself for having the backup. That was until I went to try to restore my files from the backup set. I can see all the files for the backup set, but the software won't let me get to them. My online research almost makes it sound like I need to have a log file that is stored on the original machine, but that can't be--that would be the most nonsensical thing I can think of, given that a backup is only useful when you actually lose access to the original machine. The most frustrating part is that in the past, I always used the Duplicate feature instead of the backup feature, but I decided to trust the backup feature this last time, and now I might be getting burned for that. Can anybody please help??? Thanks!!! Ryan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
