Retrospect, Inc. Announces New Releases for Windows and Mac

Block Level Incremental Backup Improves Storage Efficiency Saving Resources

PLEASANTON, Calif.—March 4, 2014—Retrospect®, Inc. today announced new versions of Retrospect Backup & Recovery Software for Microsoft® Windows® and Apple® Mac® OS X®. Retrospect 9 for Windows and Retrospect 11 for Mac both include block level incremental backup technology for smaller, faster backups, a new high-level dashboard, and detailed email reporting. Retrospect 9 for Windows also includes improved disaster recovery and dissimilar hardware restore.

Block level incremental backup provides customers with a significant boost in performance by adding the ability to back up only the parts of a file that have changed —providing a powerful complementary option to its traditional file level backup. Many data-intensive applications like Microsoft Outlook® and Microsoft Exchange® store their data in a single large file that constantly changes by small increments. With block level incremental backup, Retrospect locates the changes in a file and backs up only those blocks, speeding up the backup and using far less storage. This freed-up time and storage can be used to back up additional systems, provide breathing room for future growth, or back up critical data more frequently.

Retrospect’s new dashboard is a valuable productivity tool that gives customers a high-level overview of their current backup environment, with a weekly summary and a visualization of recent backups. Customers can quickly see which computers are not protected, identify which computers back up the most data, and evaluate their storage usage, saving time and ensuring complete data protection.

Improved email reporting provides a wealth of data about each backup. The operations log is now included in the reports to give customers complete insight into each backup's progress. With these detailed logs customers can supervise their backups from any device and filter emails based on errors or warnings to hone in on issues as soon as they happen.

“We are very excited about these new features, offering our customers a complete data protection eco-system.” said David Lee, Retrospect's Director of Worldwide Product Management. “Smaller organizations are continually challenged by the need for a comprehensive cross-platform data protection solution that offers full on-site and off-site data protection, archiving, and duplication. There are so many incomplete options in the market today that it can be very confusing. For the last 30 years, we have continued to develop Retrospect for small and medium sized businesses, refining and enhancing our tried-and-true technology, so our customers can be confident that their data is completely protected now and for the future.”
