While we're on the topic of duplicating drives and/or subvolumes, I 
tried to set up a duplicate script to periodically duplicate a drive 
on a server to a subvolume on another drive on the same server, and 
get the error message "Error (source and destination can't be on same 

Why not? I understand that it would double the amount of network 
activity on the client, but in this case I really don't care, as the 
changes on the drive I want to duplicate are minimal, though 
critical. I realize that I could move the data to a different drive 
on another client, and then duplicate it back to the preferred 
location, but this would require purchasing the drive and running two 
scripts instead of one. I also could do it manually, but that defeats 
the purpose of having Retrospect for these sorts of tasks.

Feature for Retro 4.3 or 5?
