Hello all,

Retrospect-written CDs do not mount on your desktop, so you cannot make disk
images of them to send over your LAN.

There are a few ways to transfer data from one backup set to another:

--Hook up both (supported) drives to the backup computer and initiate a
backup set transfer, from Tools>Copy>Transfer. Designate a source set and
create and/or designate a destination set. Keep in mind that transferring
does not use any kind of matching files among the source and destination.
Transfer is not designed to clone a backup set. A backup set created by
transfer has only the latest Snapshot for each source in its catalog; it has
no Snapshots on its media. Therefore, you cannot retrieve Snapshots from
media created by backup set transfer.

--Do two transfers. First transfer from your original set to an intermediate
file backup set. Then, do a transfer from the file set to the destination
set. Note, however, that a file backup set has a limit of 2 GB on the
Macintosh (yes, we're planning on changing that) and a limit of the maximum
file size for the corresponding file system on Windows.

--Do some restores to a hard drive, then back the data up to the new
destination set. 

If you have any trouble doing this or need further instructions, please
contact tech support directly.
