Compare problem


Recommended Posts



Using Retrospect 7.5 and WinXP SP3.


After I backing up some files, I get a compare error. If I copy the files and use this copy for backup, the compare works.


I have a PGP signature (same concept as MD5 checksum). Both files (the original and the copy) are byte by byte identical!

As soon as I disable this feature, the compare works on the original file:

Why is all this?


Many thanks!
