These problems may stem from troubles identifying unique volumes on the
client. On the first NT client, ensure that all volumes have unique volume
labels. If so it's possible that duplicate serial numbers are preventing
Retrospect from seeing the volumes correctly. There's a third party utility
called VolumeId that you can use to change your volume IDs. Our website has
a link that you may follow to download the free utility:
This utility will also address the problems you are seeing on the other
client. Because of the duplicate serial numbers, Retrospect is seeing
duplicate volumes on the client.
If you have any other questions, or if you find that there are other
problems with your client volumes please give us a call and we can look into
it a bit more.
