Retrospect Inc. has issued Retrospect 15.1, the first maintenance update since the release of the upgraded version 15 (see “Retrospect 15.0,” 19 March 2018). The backup software brings EU GDPR data compliance (see “Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation Makes Privacy Global,” 2 May 2018), direct email migration and syncing that enables you to bypass backups and move data from one email account to another, improves data retention using rule-based filtering in grooming, adds more cloud storage service compatibility (including Minio, Zenko CloudServer, and SwiftStack), and resolves an issue with Apple iCloud where scanning did not complete for some mailboxes. Shortly after this release, Retrospect was updated to version 15.1.1 to fix a crash that occurred when running a grooming script with no selector specified.
Retrospect 15 costs $49 for Retrospect Solo, which protects a single non-server computer and its external hard drives, and $119 for Retrospect Desktop, which covers one non-server Mac and up to five additional Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. Retrospect is offering TidBITS readers a 20 percent discount on Solo or Desktop (as well as other Retrospect Single Server and Multi Server products)—just use the TIDBITSRETRO15 coupon code when purchasing via the Retrospect online store.
