Retrospect 5.0 Backs Up Mac OS X -- Dantz Development is shipping Retrospect 5.0, which runs on either Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X and can back up and restore both operating systems. Although the Herculean task of supporting full backup and restore of Mac OS X-based Macs prevented Dantz from adding significant new features in Retrospect 5.0, it does include other welcome changes. File backup sets are no longer constrained by resource fork size limitations, so you can realistically use hard drives as backup media; files larger than 2 GB can now be backed up; and more backup devices are supported (including all currently shipping Apple optical drives). Retrospect ships in four different versions, each with different capabilities and prices. All versions are available immediately from Dantz; resellers should have them soon. French, German, and Japanese localized versions are scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2002, and international users can upgrade an English version purchased now to the corresponding localized product for free when it becomes available.
