You can set up a script in Retrospect that will lock out AppleShare users when a volume is being backed up; click on Options in the Script Edit window, then on the More Choices button, then on AppleShare. That may solve your problem; I haven't used that feature in a while so I don't know what it does to users who are logged in & have active files. My guess is it just kicks them off & frees up their files. You might want to check it out first. > > HI, > > I'm runnig Retrospec on the server itself with no problem at > all.
