Title: Re: Annoying Backup Error
Retrospect is simply reporting that the file it backed up is a different size than the file that is on the hard-drive. Which is fine, because here's the sequence:

1. Retrospect backs up it's Operations Log (along with all your other files)
2. Retrospect writes to the Operation Log that it has backed up all the files.
3. Retrospect compares the files it backed up to the files on your hard-drive and discovers that one file is different in size. Yup, it's the file that Retrospect just changed, but it doesn't "know" that, so it logs it as an error. To the Operations Log, ironically enough.

For the past month or so, I've been getting the following error in my backup report. Now I know that this looks like a pretty minor error and it hasn't had any adverse effect when I've had to restore some files here and there. The thing is though, I get this EXACT same error every single day, regardless of the type of script I'm running. Both a normal backup and recycle backup generate the same error. I'm running the following setup. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated...

Mac G4/500 ASIP Server running OS 9.0.4 with Retrospect 4.3 to a single DLT unit on the server.

The error log reads as follows...

10/04/2000 8:00:33 PM: Copying File Server
