  • RET-4657: Fixed a bug where assigning an Exchange 2003-2010 Agent license to an Exchange 2010 server would cause Retrospect to decrement the number of * Exchange 2003-2007 licenses available.

  • RET-4673: Fixed a bug where Retrospect would ask the user twice when the release of an Exchange Server Agent license was canceled.

  • RET-4683: Fixed a bug where backing up Public Folder Mailboxes could intermittently result in "can’t read, error -3405 (unknown)."

  • RET-4686: Corrected a cosmetic issue with non-English-language versions that caused Exchange Servers to be listed in the script overview window as "Exchange Server Exchange Server [Server Name]."

  • RET-4687: Fixed a bug that prevented the Backup Wizard from being able to create Backup Set on the boot volume, resulting in a "couldn’t create folder c:\ error -1 (unknown)" response.

  • RET-4692: Made a change to truncate Assert Logs >256 KB when using Retrospect’s built-in support log submission send tool.

  • RET-4698: Fixed a bug that prevented Retrospect from mounting an unmounted, recovered Exchange mailbox database.

  • RET-4700: Changed the way memory is accessed to prevent an out of memory crash (tmemory.cpp-382 assert) with the 32-bit version of Retrospect.

  • RET-5368: Fixed a bug that caused Retrospect to attempt to backup deleted mailboxes on an Exchange Server.

  • RET-5394: Fixed a License Manager bug that caused added Exchange 2003-2010 license codes to show up as Exchange 2003-2007 license codes and prevent * licensing agents for Exchange Server 2010.

  • RET-5398: Fixed a bug that could cause Retrospect to show up twice in Windows' Add/Remove Programs window.

  • RET-5409: Fixed a License Manager bug that could prevent an Exchange 2003 or 2007 server from being unlicensed.

  • RET-5410: Fixed a serious data loss bug that rendered Incremental/Differential/Log backups of Exchange Server 2010 databases useless for restores. (Note: This bug only impacted Exchange Server 2010 backups. See also RET-5421 below.)

  • RET-5418: Added recognition for Fujitsu ETERNUS LT xx family tape libraries.

  • RET-5421: Added functionality to automatically force a new full backup of all Exchange Server 2010 databases to provide known good restore points. (Note: * This fix mitigates the data loss failure from RET-5410 above.)
