QuickTip: Retrospect

February 2nd, 2013 by Charles Edge

False-positive errors muddy our view, so just as many strive to quiet noisy syslogs, we can easily overcome a common complaint we see Retrospect make when doing differential SQL backups: ‘the master DB can’t be DIFF’d’.

Complicating matters is Retro’s SQL connector doesn’t seem to allow you to exclude that one as a source. Simply make an exclusion for ‘file or folder name matches: master’ and you’ll see it get to the master in the log and decide no files necessary to backup, keeping the result of that script error-free.
