Retrospect 3.0A Updater

Send Article to a Friend

Retrospect 3.0A Updater -- Dantz has finally released the 3.0A update to its popular backup program Retrospect. The new version adds support for Windows Remotes, so you can now back up Windows machines on your network using Retrospect. Since these Windows machines probably aren't running AppleTalk, Retrospect 3.0A uses TCP/IP and Open Transport to communicate with them. The new version adds a few specific features including support for Sony DAT drives with older firmware and the ability to format 8mm Exabyte tapes. The update also corrects problems including troubles relating to RAM; better support for Arabic, Hebrew, and Chinese characters; and a fix to seeing spurious volumes on Novell servers. RAM Doubler users should note that 3.0A improves compatibility with RAM Doubler, and that Dantz recommends that you use version 1.6.2 or later with System 7.5.3. You can download the 1.6 MB updater file from Dantz's Web or FTP site, but be aware that both sites are pretty busy right now. [ACE]
