curioffl Posted July 10, 2009 Report Share Posted July 10, 2009 I have a Proactive Backup that writes to a network drive. That drive's connection has some trouble blipping out now and then. My hope was that because of the nature of the Proactive Backup it would go into "awaiting media" mode till the end of its allotted time, force a stop, and then resume the next night on its own. This seems to have been the case a couple of times but then I noticed that it had actually stopped running at all. It seems that at some point a disappearance of the drive caused Retrospect to automatically check "Skip this member" for the backup set's only member, which caused the proactive backup to never resume. The last mail it sent out was 'error -116 (volume doesn't exist)' (which is better so far than a 'regular' backup to the same drive which often sends no mail at all when it fails, and keeps the client locked to other backups till it gets discovered) but is there any way to turn off 'auto check skip this member'? If it would have checked the next night, it would have found the NAS online again. Curio Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
