emulon Posted March 31, 2002 Report Share Posted March 31, 2002 I've just upgraded to 5.0, and have found that duplicating a volume with a large number of files corrupts several files, seemingly at random. This is running Retrospect 5.0 on a Mac G4 with OS X 10.1.3. The volume that I'm duplicating has a large number of files (about 250,000), and duplicating it with verify produces messages in the log like this: File “NSBitmapImageRep.html”: different data size (src: 37,924, dest: 0), path: “OSX/System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/Resources/English.lproj/Documentation/Reference/ObjC_classic/Classes/NSBitmapImageRep.html”. Sure enough, the file on the target volume is zero bytes in size. Re-running the duplicate yields similar messages but for different files. Another problem appears to be improper handling date/time stamps for files created or modified on days where daylight-savings-time to standard-time transitions occured. Again from the log: File “acoutput.test”: different creation date/time (src: 10/28/2001 6:00:28 AM, dest: 10/28/2001 5:00:28 AM), path: “OSX/Users/xxxxxx/automake/automake/tests/acoutput.test”. File “colon6.test”: different creation date/time (src: 10/28/2001 6:00:28 AM, dest: 10/28/2001 5:00:28 AM), path: “OSX/Users/xxxxxx/automake/automake/tests/colon6.test”.
