10.3: A workaround for Retrospect Express crash
Authored by: gory on Jan 20, '04 12:51:40PM

RetroRun is what causes the problem. Easiest solution is simple, from terminal:

sudo killall RetroRun

I do that everyday before running Retrospect Express and it works fine.

10.3: A workaround for Retrospect Express crash
Authored by: avanham on Jan 20, '04 03:14:38PM

I have had no such problems with Retrospect Express under Panther. It runs just fine all the time. The only thing that scares me is that it is no longer listed as a product at the Dantz site so I can only hope that it continues to work and that when I finally need to restore my machine I don't find out it is broken.

10.3: A workaround for Retrospect Express crash
Authored by: hamish on Jan 20, '04 08:33:10PM

Retrospect Express has now become Retrospect Desktop. It is at v5.1 at the moment. v6.0 is supposed to be released January 26. Both v5.0 and v5.1 on my machine have a problem with /Library (I hope I did that right). The program tells me it is 8.1GB rather than 252MB. Hopefully v6.0 will work better with Panther.

10.3: A workaround for Retrospect Express crash
Authored by: GJABRAMS on Mar 17, '04 05:25:14PM

In Panther 10.3.2, I used the Activity Monitor application from my Utility folder to select and quit the RetroRun process and Retrospect Express version 5.0.205 worked again just fine. Easy too. Just need to have administratative root user password.

Thanks for the tip Greg.
