How Recent Is Your Last Backup?

How Recent Is Your Last Backup? Dantz Development has released a new backup program, Retrospect Express. Designed for individual users, Retrospect Express essentially replaces Dantz's DiskFit with a subset of the features available in the full version of Retrospect. Although DiskFit Pro and DiskFit Direct continue to work under Mac OS 8.1, they can't back up volumes with more than 32,000 files, and DiskFit Pro Reminder is not compatible with Mac OS 8 or 8.1. Retrospect Express includes the major features of Retrospect, such as compression, scripting, and unattended operation, and it is optimized for use with removable media, including CD-R drives. However, Retrospect Express lacks support for tape drives - for that you need Retrospect. TidBITS sponsor Dantz Development is offering Retrospect Express via the Internet for $49.95 via the URL below. [ACE]
