Retrospect 6.1 rebuilding catalog file
by barryjacq2 - 12/26/05 1:48 PM
I have some data files that I backed up on a Windows PC to a Maxtor external drive using Retrospect, and I want to restore them to my Macintosh.
I am using Retrospect 6.1 running under Mac OS X 10.4.3.
I do this:
1. Click on Retrospect Express
2. Click on Tools tab
3. Click on Repair (to rebuild a backup set catalog)
Now I am presented with a list:
Update existing catalog file
Rebuild from tapes
Rebuild from CD/DVD disks
Rebuild from removable disks
Repair file backup set.
If I choose Rebuild from removable disks, I get a message No removable media found (even though I have the external Maxtor drive running and can see the restore files in Finder)
If I choose Repair backup set, I can browse my external Maxtor drive but can only see .rdb files
I seem to be going around in circles trying to recreate the catalog set so I can restore my .rdb files.
Any ideas anyone?
