About Us

Retrospect protects over 100,000 homes and businesses in over 100 countries, backing up data from as far away as the Hubble Telescope and as close by as your neighborhood dentist. We've been used to restore data nineteen years later as well as the laptop that was just backed up - right before being kicked off the bed by the dog. Retrospect has been protecting data since 1989, starting as Dantz Development. We were acquired by EMC in 2004, and seven years later, we were spun off again as Retrospect, Inc. and operate as a small, privately-owned company.

Founded in 2011 by longtime Retrospect software team members, Retrospect, Inc. is dedicated to providing reliable backup and recovery tools for professionals and small-to-midsize businesses. Our employees average 10 years of experience each in developing, supporting, or marketing Retrospect. Our customers—who can be found in every industry and in more than 100 countries around the world—use Retrospect to protect anywhere from one to 1,000 computers on their networks. It is our strong belief that data protection software should be "backed" up with the best customer support available, which we strive to provide.

Being a company focused solely on providing the best backup tools and support for micro, small, and midsize businesses, our direction is crystal clear. As was the case with Dantz, the company that originally created Retrospect more than 20 years ago, backup is once again all we do.
