    Need Help Moving Retospect Files To New Drive

    I was wondering where my fellow users were! Maybe Roxio could link to the Dantz/EMC site? Bob

    ogdens and Brendon, Thanks for your replies. If all had been revealed earlier, I might still be using Retrospect! Bob

    Need Help Moving Retospect Files To New Drive

    So maybe it's my fault. But none of the Macintosh Applications forums is for Retrospect, not even Legacy Mac Products, and this thread about Retrospect in this forum was replied to, so I went with here. Bob

    Need Help Moving Retospect Files To New Drive

    196 Views, 0 Replies. I just switched to Time Machine. What an eye-opener! Backing up is easy, restoring is easy. Easy peasy! Retrospect was great for a long time, but I think it's time to move on.
  5. Hi, everyone, I ran out of space on my old drive and want to switch to a new one. I copied over the "Backup.rbc" file and the Retrospect folder (with a "Backup Media" file and the "Backup" folder in it). But it's not working. When I try to restore a file, it lets me choose from what's backed up, but then says it needs media. Why should it need media to restore a file? Is it remembering that it needed media the last time I backed up? So I tried to restore from an earlier backup. But when I click "More Backups", select an earlier one, and click Retrieve, nothing happens. When I look under Media Sets > Members, it shows "1-Backup" with its old location. I tried to edit it, but wasn't sure exactly what to do. Under "edit member", I selected "1-Backup" on my new drive and clicked Save, and in red it said "an error occurred". I couldn't find "edit member" in the User's Guide. This is with Retrospect 8.2 and Mac OS 10.6.5. I thought it would save some time to continue backing up to "Backup". Should I just start a new media set? Or, I keep getting frustrated with Retrospect, should I just switch to Time Machine? Thanks, Bob
