Additional Features

Every edition of Retrospect includes our extensive feature set for complete data protection.

  • Smart Restore

    Retrospect always restores exactly the files that belong on a volume; no unwanted files get restored and later require cleanup.

  • Fine-Grained Scheduling

    Backup, copy, archive, and restore operations in Retrospect can be scheduled to meet any agenda.

  • Data Deduplication

    Retrospect maximizes storage usage by only copying unique files—even across multiple computers—to the backup media.

  • Powerful Filtering

    To include or skip specific files, folders, and volumes, or to back up only specific data to cloud storage, Retrospect includes both built-in and user-definable selectors that filter data based on a multitude of conditions, including file names, dates, and types.

  • Monitoring Tools

    Retrospect integrates with the latest monitoring systems, including Nagios, Slack, and IFTTT.

  • Fit any Storage Budget

    Grooming allows customers to stay protected with a long-term backup retention policy to ensure recovery from yesterday, last month, or five years ago, using storage that fits their budget.

  • End-to-End Security

    Retrospect supports a variety of encryption algorithms, including AES-256, for both at-rest and in-transit security options.

  • Monitor on an iPhone

    Use the free Retrospect iOS app on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to keep tabs on backups over Wi-Fi or 3/4G.
