John Clouston Posted July 20, 2009 Report Share Posted July 20, 2009 We run Retrospect on a mixed network of Mac and PC clients, and it's normally reliable (apart from Mac clients randomly switching off by themselves). About a week ago however, our Proactive backup scripts stopped running completely or would fail after backing up one or two clients. The log doesn't report anything unusual. I went to the Run menu to see if Proactive Backup needed re-starting, but it appeared to be still running. Tried to click "Stop Proactive Backup" so I could re-start it - no luck. I've tried numerous times - it asks if I want to stop Proactive Backup, I say Yes, but it doesn't stop. If I try to quit Retrospect it again asks if I want to stop Proactive Backup, I say Yes, and the app won't quit - I've left it there for ages and end up force quitting from the Task Manager. Even after re-booting the PC and re-launching Retrospect, it's not working. Most clients not now backed up for a week, which is serious. Other scripts appear to be running fine. Anyone else had this problem? We run Retrospect Multi Server 6.5.336 from a Windows XP Pro machine, v2002 SP2 with 1GB Ram. Backup media is an Idealstor hard disk setup (very good incidentally- way less trouble than our old Ultrium tape based set up). Clients are mainly 6.5.140 for PC or 6.1.130 for the Macs.
