Dantz Releases Free Retrospect Express 4.1 Upgrade -- Dantz Development last week released a free upgrade to the individual backup program Retrospect Express. Retrospect Express 4.1 brings the program into parity with the full-featured Retrospect 4.1 by adding support for Internet backup to FTP servers and a bootable disaster recovery CD. Also new in Retrospect Express 4.1 are built-in encryption (necessary for Internet backups), improved performance, and full Mac OS 8.5 compatibility. With the addition of the Internet backup feature, Retrospect Express becomes an excellent solution for iMac users who lack external storage devices. Since Dantz introduced the $50 Retrospect Express 4.0 only six months ago, the company felt the upgrade to 4.1 should be free, which it is if you download the 2.9 MB updater. However, a downloadable updater can't provide the bootable disaster recovery CD; if you want that, it costs $15 (shipping and handling is included in that price). [ACE]
