  1. Hi,
    Does anyone have feedback on using Retrospect in the last few years? I used it years ago and am interested in using it as a backup in case of ransomware. My thinking is that a separate Retrospect computer backing up the desktops would be immune to ransomware. Any thoughts on that idea?
