Todd,

There were issues with earlier versions of Castlewood's Mac drivers which
seem to have been fixed with the latest version. I'd highly recommend
downloading the latest driver from www.castlewood.com, installing it, then
erasing each of your backup disks before trying another backup (to make sure
the latest drivers are placed on each disk).

Also make sure you're running at least Retrospect 4.2, which fixed some
problems associated with using removable disks with Retrospect under OS 9.

If you're talking about the Orb on the PC, none of the problems that
affected the Mac were an issue in Windows. You will want to make sure you've
updated to the latest version of both the Orb driver and Retrospect, though.

Feel free to give tech support a call if you still have trouble after trying
this again.
