unrecognized catalogs

Recommended Posts

i recently lost all my catalog files on a PC server and had them restored by our IT super.

but retrospect (mac based) does not or cannot read the catalog files? is there anything i/we can do to be able to read these files? (other than rebuild them) i think PC based server strips out the header fork from mac files, but would that be the reason a mac retrospect would not read those files? or is there another reason?

The catalog files are not the same on Mac and Windows.You have to read the Windows catalog files with the Windows version of Retrospect.

Nor are the formats of the backup sets the same, either, so you can't just rebuild the catalogs.


Retrospect 8 is supposed to be able to read Windows backups, though.
