    I don't use Retrospect, but if after editing, scanning persists after quitting in Activity &/or a restart, the launchctl commands in the link should stop it, regardless.

    Modifying the retro_isa.ini file

    -Macintosh

    1) Locate the file using the path listed above

    2) Get Info on the retro_ISA.ini file.

    3) Unlock the file using the lock button

    4) Change the file permissions to "Read & Write" for Admin, Everyone and your logged in user account.

    5) Double click the file and make any needed edits

    7) Restart RetroISA using the below directions

    Step five: what application is opening that file for you?

    What's keeping you from simply disabling it?

     

    Macintosh Terminal Commands

     

    Stop the RetroISA process: sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.retrospect.retroisa.plist

     

     

    Start the RetroISA process: sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.retrospect.retroisa.plist

    It's easily reversed if it doesn't work out. sudo is no big deal here.

     

    EDIT: In case you've never used the sudo prefix before, you will be asked for your admin pword, which you won't see anywhere when you type it in. You will also get a warning about using sudo. Just keep going.

    And, this isn't for me, but please have a look at the Legend in the right sidebar.

    Thanks for the solved, but I really had Andy in mind, whose help was really critical to this. Anyway, what's important is you found something that worked, at least short term.

     

    Perhaps you can downgrade to the 9, or just dump it entirely and get CCC? None of these problems with CCC.
