Known issues with this release

  • Engine: Customers can encounter the following message in the log during grooming: "grxSearchForPartialFiles: unable to find all dependent partial files for 'file_path'". For large files using Block Level Incremental Backup (BLIB), this indicates that older versions of the file have been groomed out by prior Retrospect releases and are no longer restorable (#5085), but the most recent full/base version and the incremental versions based on it are properly preserved. For files not using BLIB, these messages can be safely ignored, including backups from SQL and Exchange add-ons (#5100).

Known issues with this release

  • Files marked as private with the Retrospect Client are invisible to a Retrospect engine running on the same computer. This issue only occurs when the Retrospect engine and client software are both installed on the same Mac.
  • System Preference panes are not uninstalled from disks encrypted with FileVault whole disk encryption. To remove the Retrospect and Retrospect Client System Preference panes from disks encrypted with FileVault’s whole disk encryption feature activated, right-click (or Control-click) on them in System Preferences and select the Remove option.
  • Media Sets with DES encryption created on PowerPC-based Macs running Retrospect 8 cannot be read by Intel-based Macs and vice versa. We recommend that users requiring data encryption switch to the more advanced AES standard.
  • Disk Media Set members cannot be edited on Mac OS X 10.5 64-bit Macs. We recommend running Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” or later on 64-bit-capable Intel Macs.
  • Tape library magazine slot assignment changes do not update until the Retrospect console is quit and restarted.
