Retrospect Client Public Beta for Mac OS X

Retrospect Client Public Beta for Mac OS X -- Dantz Development has released the public beta of Retrospect Client for Mac OS X, making it possible to back up Mac OS X machines via a plug-in added to Retrospect 4.3 on a backup server running Mac OS 8.x or Mac OS 9.x. Since Unix permissions of files are lost for any files backed up while a Mac OS X-based Mac is booted into Mac OS 9.1, this public beta, despite its raw state, is an important step in making Mac OS X usable on a production machine. Limitations include no support for Retrospect selectors, disabled notification and backup server preferences, no clock synchronization, no countdown alert before backup, incomplete support for UFS volumes, no uninstaller, and an expiration date of 01-Jul-01. Complete restores also require booting from another volume that has the Retrospect Client for Mac OS X installed. A number of problems have already arisen on Dantz's support mailing list (the only support option available right now) - I strongly encourage anyone reliant on Retrospect to subscribe by sending email to <retro.client.osx-on@list.dantz.com>. The 444K download requires your Retrospect license code or registration number, and you'll need an available client license to log in to Retrospect Client for Mac OS X. [ACE]
