With these new cloud storage locations, IT administrators have even more choices for their off-site protection. A full list of certified providers is available at According to Jean-Christian Dumas, vice president of Worldwide Sales Retrospect, Retrospect for Mac now included the following new features:

° Retrospect’s daily backup report email has been improved to support better analytics for large-scale environments with hundreds of clients, with a high-level summary, a section for errors, and a table of clients that are not protected.

° Customers are now able to customize Retrospect’s HTML email template with their own header and footer, enabling IT administrators to add their contact details for quick access to support.

° Improved error reporting. To reduce the noise of spurious warnings, Retrospect no longer identifies the following issues as warnings: cached files that don’t compare (operating system files during a live system backup) or files that are no longer present (files that were present during the scan but not during backup).

° Retrospect now better adapts to network hiccups and timeouts with a faster retry mechanism and improved error handling.
