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

 

VMware Host Server

Open File Backup Unlimited

Open File Backup Disk-to-Disk Edition

Protects open files on NTFS-formatted volumes on the one Windows server. 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 Disk-to-Disk Edition add-on covers your Retrospect host server only. Specifically for Retrospect Single Server (Disk-to-Disk) and Desktop (Professional).
