Retrospect 4.1 Upgrade Handles Drives and Drivers

Dantz has posted a set of updates to Retrospect and Retrospect Express 4.1: the Retrospect 4.1 Driver Update, Version 1.6 (a 150K download), adds support for new CD-RW drives and fixes a problem with faster DAT drives (DDS-2 and DDS-3) on some computers; the Retrospect 4.1A Updater (a 288K download) fixes a problem with the AppleShare lockout feature; finally, the Retrospect 4.1 Client Updater (a 96K download) fixes a problem with the version that shipped on early production Retrospect 4.1 CD-ROMs. Although releasing small updates in a piecemeal fashion makes it more awkward to keep Retrospect up to date, Dantz is keeping its users’ best interests in mind: no one wants to lose data waiting for a minor fix to be rolled into a larger release.
