Why did you choose Retrospect as your backup?

The original decision to use Retrospect occurred in the early 1990’s. The advantages then were many and it has withstood the test of time as a superior product. Examples:

  • It can backup Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Unix products
  • The point in time backup feature made it possible to restore files before the mistake was made or bad file occurred
  • Easy to use scripting, automated tape function and direct to disk array backups
  • Ability to add or scale your systems as the data size changes

There are many more advantages to this product. The internet is loaded with success stories.

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.

A Happy Customer

“I had issues with other backup solutions in my environment. Now that I utilize Retrospect, I've been a happy customer.”

Industry: Aerospace

Why did you choose Retrospect as your backup?

I had grown frustrated with our previous solution called BackupExec. I really liked the user interface of Retrospect over our previous software.

What do you like about Retrospect?

  • It just works!
  • Easy to setup for use across all of our platforms that include Linux , Windows & OSX.
  • Reliable – We have used various versions of Retrospect for almost eight years now.
  • Has scaled well for PADT, Inc. with no complaints!
  • The iPhone/iPad application was a great addition and I use it all the time.

How has Retrospect helped you?

Over the past eight years Retrospect has been a valuable resource for PADT, Inc. The software has “saved” many of our slips of the delete keys. We don’t expect to change anytime soon! I don’t ever recall having a failed or corrupted restore!

Why did you choose Retrospect as your backup?

It was recommended as the preferred software for our first external drive - Maxtor One Touch II. This was over 7 years ago when we first started...

What do you like about Retrospect?

Absolutely Everything:

  • I trust the package completely. It offers a level of ‘business safety’ knowing that one has access to it.
  • It is an invaluable asset for us or any small / medium sized business; putting the client in the driving seat with regards to data management, security and control.
  • It is very easy to use [although, to maximize the use of all the features in the newer versions, one may need to invest some induction time].
  • It offers various backup and access options – hardware include server, desktop, iphone etc.; and level of back up data from a single file to the whole system.
  • The Activity Monitor Log gives us a one stop section for data review and control.
  • Having Retrospect means that we save on disc space. We do not really need to be saving excess versions of the same files as we know we can always access prior day’s work if need be.
  • We are less worried about virus attacks and the like.

How has Retrospect helped you?

It has practically saved our business. We have had quite a few file restores over the years due to:

  • Hardware and software upgrades
  • Hard disc extension
  • Problems with corrupt file during staff training
  • File / data overwrite problems
  • Plus virus attack and clean up related works

The fact that we have the option to perform either a complete restore on our operating system or just for a single file, coupled with the bonus that we can also transfer data to a new / different hardware has been priceless, absolutely priceless!

The Best!

Why did you choose Retrospect as your backup?

Been a Retrospect user since 2003. Well regarded. A system that we trust.

What do you like about Retrospect?

Easy to implement and configure. Low cost. Excellent support. A good backup is in the restore. If you can't restore, why backup? Retrospect has never failed in restoring from a backup.

How has Retrospect helped you?

Due to a natural disaster event with severe flooding here in Calgary June 2013, all of downtown (including our office) was going to be closed. We were able to grab our drive with all of our critical work backed up and a few laptops. We provided emergency communication work and business continuity at a temporary remote location for almost two weeks before we were allowed to return.

Why did you choose Retrospect as your backup?

We have used Retrospect as a backup solution from the early days of version 6. So it seemed a natural progression to upgrade when it has proved necessary.

What do you like about Retrospect?

It has a simple and easy to use application window. Once the scripts and sets have been created you can almost leave it to do its job and safely forget about it. Each new upgrade has a great improvement over the last version.

How has Retrospect helped you?

Retrospect has helped us to backup and restore files upon request. Saving numerous of hours having to recreate corrupted or deleted files. It’s a valuable tool for archiving work and is a very much needed asset in recovery.

Retrospect Saved Their Job

Muller & Caulfield Architects | Rosemary Muller

Industry: Architecture

Why did you choose Retrospect as your backup?

Wanted to continue using an application I already know and trust. Computers are critical to my architectural business. We use them to create our drawings, as well as typical business uses. We need to be able to restore data and get back to work in less than a day. A colleague who backed up “to the cloud” lost all data and it took 4 days to restore via the internet. We can’t afford to be down 4 days.

What do you like about Retrospect?

IT professional not required. I set it up myself. My architectural staff can use Retrospect themselves to retrieve a file, or even to restore the whole server after a disk failure. Easy to set up to do automatic backup every night, with once a week backup to second disk to be rotated offsite.

How has Retrospect helped you?

I have been using Retrospect for more than 15 years. During that time it has saved my life at least twice from total disk failure, once while I was out of the country and my staff had to recover everything on their own. We have used Retrospect numerous times to restore old versions of files that got mistakenly trashed or we discovered were corrupted.

When selling security solutions and services, it is key to understand the technologies but also feel that we will be supported in every step of the sale process. We signed up to the Retrospect partner programme in November 2012 as we were looking at standardising on a unique backup solution for our customers and decided to partner with Retrospect because they understand partner enablement and support! The partner kit includes various resources and we specifically loved their mini site that not only displays their content directly in our website so is immediately updated when they have new versions but also includes a few tools to help us create demand like a trial page and license upgrade options. This is a great endorsement for our prospects who feel that we are true partners, not just a partner logo.

As an Elite partner we also get extra visibility and extra attention! The Retrospect guys were able to join us and our customers and prospect for a business breakfast along with other vendors to discuss how our technologies (communication server, backup, storage etc..) work well together.
