What do you like about Retrospect?

  • I can create an automated script and it will back-up the client using the full or incremental method depending on the need. I can then restore that same data back to the client reliably and they can pick-up their work right were the left off. The user can also do the same for themselves if the configuration is set-up to allow it.

How has Retrospect helped you?

  • We have been able to restore data for several engineers over the years that would have been lost had it not been backed up. In one instance the 7 year old data from a Mac was restored to a PC and with a little conversion enabled the engineer to use it. Just as he did 7 years earlier.
