My drives keep being marked to be skipped


Recommended Posts

On our servers we service at work we swap out backup drives periodically (usually at least on a weekly or bi-weekly basis). I check the backups remotely before and after we swap the drives. What I've noticed a lot lately is that backups are not running. When I check the properties on the backup set "skip this member" is selected. Of course, de-selecting this makes the backup run normally, but it can be a day or two before this is even checked if we get busy. What is causing Retrospect to select this. Are we doing something we shouldn't?

They are members of different backup sets. Our method is to stop the drive that's in the computer, swap it with an off-site backup and carry the drive that was in the computer off-site for storage until our next scheduled visit.


Retrospect is set to automatically groom the drive based on the default settings.
