Retrospect Swiss launch with Cropmark AG

Last month, we joined our Swiss distributor Cropmark AG for "Backup Breakfast".

This event closely followed the launch of the new versions of Retrospect for Windows and Retrospect for Mac. JC Dumas, Eddy Friesch, and Matt Johnson (via Skype) presented Retrospect's new feature set, specifically for the SMB market. Partners tested storage solutions from Cropmark AG, asked questions about Retrospect's performance improvements and other enhancements, and shared their own experiences with SMB data protection.

We'd like to thank Cropmark AG and all of the participants. The event was a great success for both sides!

Blazing Backup Speed

Retrospect’s new versions are significantly faster across key areas. Backups and restores take far less time in many cases, and other powerful features like grooming and snapshot transfer are lightning fast. Whether you are protecting Mac, Windows, or Linux systems, you'll feel the power of new Retrospect.



Super-Sized Data Grooming

Grooming is one of Retrospect's most powerful features. By using grooming, you can reduce the size of your backup set while keeping backups per policy from months or years ago, all without adding new media. With this release, grooming is up to 200% faster than previous versions, so you can clear out that unnecessary data and save money by recycling media.

In addition, our new grooming option allows you to determine the number of months of backups to keep. This setting enables you to comply with regulations that require long term data retention for business, while ensuring older and duplicate files are removed from the backup set.



Intelligent Reporting

Customized Email Summaries

Retrospect keeps you informed about the state of your backup environment, with detailed emails customized to your preferences. Each script notification includes a high-level summary at the top, along with a redesigned subject line that includes the script name, the number of errors, and the number of warnings. Even the 'From' address is now your server's name. At a glance, you can see that an operation completed successfully or immediately know if there was an error warranting investigation. The bottom of the email includes the script's log to pinpoint warnings or errors.


Insightful Dashboard

The dashboard on Mac and Windows has been enhanced to provide even more detailed information about each backup. You can now hover over any backup and instantly see what was backed up, how many files, and how much data it included.


Real-time Progress Information

Retrospect now offers detailed progress information and log entries to let you know how far along more time intensive tasks like catalog rebuilds, building snapshots, restores, grooms, and snapshot transfers are.

Bullet-Proof Network Resilience

Retrospect is more resilient to network hiccups and address changes that affect client connectivity and stability. From corrupted iCloud files on a remote Mac to Windows laptops closed during backup, Retrospect notes issues in the log and moves onto the next backup source.

Other Improvements

Instant Scan Centralized Management

In addition to client-side management, admins can now manage the state of Instant Scan in their environment through the server interface. You can enable or disable the feature per client.



Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Support


Retrospect is fully certified for Microsoft SQL Server 2014.

Native 64-bit Linux Support

Retrospect now includes native 64-bit Linux client support.

New Bundle – Special Pricing!

Retrospect’s new product bundles offer powerfully enhanced data protection at great prices.

Each bundle comes with a different Retrospect base product, plus the Open File Backup and Dissimilar Hardware Restore add-ons, and a full year of support and free upgrades!

Open File Backup

The Retrospect Open File Backup add-on protects open files on Windows servers, desktops, and laptops. This add-on makes it possible to protect line-of-business applications—such as email clients, accounting, CRM, and proprietary database systems—without shutting them down first.

Dissimilar Hardware Restore

The Retrospect Dissimilar Hardware Restore add-on makes it possible to quickly and easily recover an entire Windows OS computer to a different physical computer, such as a newer model or even one from an entirely different manufacturer.

Whether transferring your system files after a hardware failure or simply because you are upgrading your desktop, laptop or server, Dissimilar Hardware Restore represents a huge time-savings over downloading and installing all of your software, drivers, settings and files to a new computer. Using the Dissimilar Hardware Add-on, Retrospect installs the OS, settings, and software from your old system to the new one.

  • 9x5 phone-based technical support with the ability to submit a web ticket 24x7
