Retrospect 4.1 Backs Up Via FTP -- Dantz Development today announced Retrospect 4.1, the latest version of their powerful backup software. The most important new feature, support for Internet backup sets, enables Retrospect to back up to remote FTP servers over the Internet; it's ideal for iMac users. Version 4.1 also includes a new disaster recovery CD that can boot modern Macs, support for additional devices (including DVD-RAM drives), improved speed and reliability, and expanded email reporting. Upgrades to 4.1, which Dantz expects to ship on 01-Oct-98, are free to customers who purchased Retrospect 4.0 after 01-Sep-98; otherwise the cost is $29.95, which includes free updates to Retrospect Clients.
