Question about Dantz EMC RetroSpect 7 Add-On Value Package

2 Answers

Retrospect I installed mionet and emc retrospect software on my network. I was given a password for retrospect and when I went to set up the backup it asked for a username and password. It will not take the unsername & password that I was given. How do I get past this problem as there is no way to click on a lost password on the retrospect windows, which is a bad thing.

Mionet seems to give the username in some funny form with the name of the resource eg \\[name]\mionet-[username] Try using only your username in the username field or mionet-username - I can't remember which worked. Also it may work better is IP number and ID-string is used especially if the professional version of Retrospect is used.

Did you have your 'Caps Lock' on either when setting up or trying to access software?
Otherwise you may just have to re-install software.
Write down password, and keep it safe this time.

You can find your Username and Password by running the MioNet program, and going up to Help > Backup Info. If you have an old version of MioNet you will have the Backup Info button right on the interface on the upper right-hand side, it's a square button.

If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.
