Restore failure (permissions)


Recommended Posts

I did a complete restore and I received over 15,000 warnings and errors from Retrospect. Afterwards, the restored PC behaved strangely. I had some troubles connecting WiFi, running certain programs (cygwin) and so forth.


This is a client server backup/restore system.


The server is a Windows XP machine, service pack 3, fully up to date with Windows Update. I have Retrospect Professional on this machine. I back up to USB connected disk drives.


The client is a Windows 7 Home Premium machine, fully up to date with Windows Update. I have Retrospect client 7.7.106 on this machine.


Backups work without warnings or errors.


Here is a sample of the warnings and errors from the restore operation:


File "C:\Windows\winsxs\Catalogs\db75056fb2f0bd417a827e9ff9f96e4a661d67d826329356e7bf55a902a7408a.cat": can't link to "C:\Windows\winsxs\Manifests\x86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.4053_none_d08d7da0442a985d.cat", error -1017 ( insufficient permissions)

Thank you for the reply Robin. So that I may recover from this problem, can you describe what Retrospect did to my client PC during the restore?


I mean, did some files actually get restored, but with the wrong ownership? What did Retrospect do during the restore operation?


I sure hope that the "next release" appears soon.
