karma Posted July 5, 2009 Report Share Posted July 5, 2009 Recently, I run into this error frequently when I attempt to back up a large number of clients (well, large for me = 5 or 6). Since I get no useful information from the Operations Log, here is a screen shot of the latest failed backup (I use Immediate Backup, initiate it before I retire for the evening, check it in the morning.) I tried to use the image tags option but it seems to not work on this forum, it hangs. So here is a link to the screen shot: http://www.karma-lab.com/images-pub/scanningincomplete.jpg I used to have 4 GB of RAM on the backup machine. Thinking it might be RAM, I recently upgraded the machine to 12 GB of RAM - that oughta be enough, huh? No change... obviously the RAM doesn't seem to affect the situation. Main machine running Restrospect 6.1.230; driver update 126.96.36.199: MacPro Quad (2 x 3.0 Ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeon) - OS X 10.4.11, 12 GB RAM All clients are running the Driver Update 6.2.234. Several are PPC Macs, running 10.4.11; the last one in the list that failed is a MacBook Pro (Intel) 10.5.7. The backup mechanism is a 1 TB Iomega UltraMax external hard drive. Currently with over 800 GB available. I have heard reference in other posts to a mximum number of files; it's unclear to me whether that is per device, oer source, per the whole backup, or what exactly. What can I do to rectify this situation? =================== Other Question: If I run into this situation, is there a way to deselect the last backup client in the list (which has failed) without having to rescan all 5 other sources? If so, I have not been able to determine it. If I open Preview at this point, it will eventually try to scan the final entry in the list again. If I cancel out of that, and then hit the backup button, it starts trying to scan it again. If I open the Sources and deselect the last backup client, it will then completely start over.
