Unable to use mounted volumes as backup sets with retrospect 7.7


Recommended Posts



for many reasons i don't like working with drive letters. So my drive config is like that:


C:\ -> system drive

C:\Montages\Dossiers -> mounted volume for datas

C:\Montages\SIntDossiers -> mounted volume (internal drive) for backup of Dossiers

C:\Montages\SExtDossiers -> mounted volume (external drive) for backup of Dossiers


I was using this config with Windows 7 ultimate 64 bits and Retrospect 7.6 since october without problems (except some very minor issues)


But since upgrade to Retrospect 7.7, i got the following (with old backup sets and even with the creation of a new backup set):

the size used to define the backup set is always the size of C: drive, not the size of the mounted volume (and the available space is the available space of C: drive).


and so, try to groom and everythings fail.


Workaround: assign drive letters to volume being used for backup sets.


Thanks for your help,
