6.5 bug...disk letter change causes retrospect to be confused


Recommended Posts

Plugged in a firewire disk as retrospect was backing up my C drive to tape.


It paused the backup until the drive was enumerated, so far so good.


Changed the drive letter for the firewire drive to Y:


Retrospect said that 'Two virtually identical drives were found that cannot be distinguished easily. Please change something on one of them for our and everybody's sake'


Yep, that was the message - wierd.


Anyway, then the C backup completed, but it would not let me quit because it said:


'Cannot determine a drives status - please wait before exitting'


And it just sat there.
