Explore Retrospect Add-ons

Retrospect's functionality can be extended with a number of add-ons. They're available for purchase separately from the base product.


Open File Backup Unlimited

Protects open files on NTFS-formatted volumes on Windows servers, desktops, and laptops. This add-on makes it possible to protect line-of-business applications—such as accounting, CRM, and proprietary database systems—while they’re running, even those with data files spread across multiple volumes. Retrospect’s Open File Backup Unlimited add-on extends to all Windows systems protected by your Retrospect host server, including end-user desktops and laptops.

Advanced Tape Support

Improves backup times by utilizing multiple tape drives in parallel, including multiple stand-alone drives, drives in libraries, or drives in autoloaders. The Advanced Tape Support add-on is licensed per Retrospect host server, not per tape drive. For example, only one Advanced Tape Support add-on license is required for a library with four tape drive mechanisms.

Extends the number of networked desktops and notebook computers that can be backed up using Retrospect Disk-to-Disk or Desktop editions. Available in 1, 5, and 10 client license packs.


Retrospect Server Client

Extends the number of networked servers that can be backed up using Retrospect Single Server editions. Each Retrospect Server Client adds a license for protecting one additional server as a network client.
