The only other machine I have with enough spare disk space to test this is
my wife's iBook ... I installed Retrospect 4.3 and it worked fine. Actually
the throughput was almost 4 time what my old 8500 does ... could be 10baseT
vs full duplex 100baseT but I guess the 8500 is just showing its age.
Hence I conclude that there is an issue with the disk subsystem in my 8500
... ACARD PCI IDE/66 adapter and IBM 20GB IDE disk. :-(
Sounds like a good opportunity simulate a disk failure and perform reformat
and do a full restore from backup.
