Complex backup system
Note that the Retrospect app is only a part of a 3 elements system: firstly, the Retrospect engine is dealing with the backup process (is included in the Retrospect server), the Retrospect app allows the user to interact with the software functions, while the Retrospect client must be installed on all computers that need to be backed up.
Automatic data backup
To get started, you must set up the Retrospect server on the computer connected to all the backup storage devices. The Retrospect app can connect to your local server or can use a remote server.
The next step is to set up backup sources and set up various activities. Retrospect provides support for multiple scripts which are organized by purpose: backup (backup, copy, archive or proactive backup), restore, and utility (copy media set, copy backup, verify and groom).
Intuitive management tools
Note that Retrospect comes with various smart folders that will help you monitor and analyze the app’s functions: recent activities, 24hr schedule, no backup in 7 days, never backed up, errors &warnings, or active / inactive scripts.
Most importantly, you can tell Retrospect how many backups to keep, so you will not waste storage space by holding on to older backups. At the same time, the app will minimize the backup size by copying only unique files and performing automatic file deduplication.
Comprehensive backup solution with support for multiple operating systems
The Retrospect application can run on multiple operating systems (Mac, Window, Linux and iOS), which means that you get to backup data stored on all types of devices, through the same setup.
All in all, if you are looking for a complete backup solution that can deal with numerous storage devices and source files and folder, while automatically performing various actions, Retrospect certainly deserves your attention.
