How do I install the Retrospect Driver Update on Mac OS X?


  1. If Retrospect is currently running, quit the application.

  2. Download the latest Retrospect Driver Update.

  3. Once the download is complete, Mac OS X should automatically mount the .dmg file as a disk image. If the disk image does not automatically mount, double click on the .dmg file that was downloaded.

  4. The disk image will contain folders for different languages. Double click the folder for the language you would like to use. Inside the folder, you should see a file named "Retrospect 6.x Driver Update".

  5. Open the Retrospect folder which is located in the Applications folder. If there is already a Retrospect 6.x Driver Update file, move it to the Trash.

  6. Drag the "Retrospect 6.x Driver Update" from the mounted disk image to the Retrospect Folder.

To verify that the new Retrospect Driver Update is properly installed:

  1. Launch the Retrospect Software

  2. Go to Reports > Log.

  3. Scroll to the bottom of the log.

  4. Verify that it says Retrospect Driver Update, version where matches the version of the installed Retrospect Driver Update.
