I've replied to Craig off-list about this, but I'd thought I'd clue you all
in on what might be going on here. Retrospect 4.3 introduced significant
changes in the way it deals with high-end, high-speed SCSI cards. This was
done in an effort to speed up Retrospect's communication with these drives
and really take advantage of these cards' capabilities, which Retrospect was
not fully doing in version 4.2 and earlier.

Therefore, the (in many cases) significant speed increase is more likely to
bring out problems. These problems, though they may have always been
present, may have only surfaced now thanks to the newly increased speed.
That's what I suspect happened in Craig's case, and may occur in others.
Once again, I encourage anyone receiving similar symptoms with high-end SCSI
cards and fast drives to contact Dantz technical support at 925.253.3050 or
[EMAIL PROTECTED] for assistance. Thanks,
