Fall Update: Product Improvements for Windows and Mac
November 7, 2017
New Cloud Storage Providers
Retrospect is now certified to seamlessly integrate with DigitalOcean Spaces, Google Cloud Storage in Frankfurt and São Paulo, and Aufiero Informatica in Argentina.
Daily Backup Report Email for Large-Scale Environments
Retrospect's daily backup report email has been improved to support better analytics for large-scale environments with hundreds of clients, with a high-level summary, a section for errors, and a table of clients that are not protected.
Customizable Email Template
Customers are now able to customize Retrospect's HTML email template with their own header and footer, enabling IT administrators to add their contact details for quick access to support. For details, see our Knowledgebase article: How to Customize the Retrospect Email Template
Improved Error Reporting
Retrospect has always had excellent error reporting. If there is an issue with your backup or restore, we call it out in the operations log. To reduce the noise of spurious warnings, Retrospect no longer identifies the following issues as warnings: cached files that do not compare (operating system files during a live system backup) or files that are no longer present (files that were present during the scan but not during backup). For details, see our Knowledgebase article: Improved Error Reporting.
Retrospect now better adapts to network hiccups and timeouts with a faster retry mechanism and improved error handling, including handling the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar virtual interface. For the full list, see the release notes.
