dana, there are several issues related to the 2 gig limit Mac File issue.
first, the HD that has the back up set has to be in HFS+ format.  Second,
I would ask, how/what is your client doing the back up.  is the powerbook
a back up host that is backing up a mounted volume?  or, is the powerbook
running retro and backing up itself to the firewire HD?  ASIP has a 2 gig limit
also though I doubt you are running ASIP on the powerbook :-)

I have a customer with an interesting problem.  On his G-4 tower, he is
backing up to a firewire hard drive.  The file is currently about 4.5 gb.
When he tried to do the same thing with his firewire powerbook, same system
(9.04), same ver. of Retrospect 4.3, same brand of drive, 25gb VST.
Retrospect refuses to run citing the 2gb file limit.  Is there something I
am missing here?
