1-0 out of 5 stars Total Dung
Loved Retrospect when it first came out. I've used this version on 3 different computers. Some with freshly formatted source and destination drives. Never completes without errors that render the backup sets unusable. If you buy it make sure you suspect Retrospect first and not waste your valuable 30 days free support working on the drives as I did.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very powerful/reliable but slow and not intuitive
Dantz Retrospect 6.0 is an industrial grade product. From what I can tell it's nicely implemented when it comes to supporting backups in a "heavy" environment.

For my use on my G4 Mac (dual 825 Mhz processors w/1 GByte of ram) I find it pretty hard to use.

For example, to backup files from a single directory, you have to choose the "Source" but that only let's you choose a source disk or create a "Volume" that only seems to be able to contain a whole disk. There's no option to directly specify a directory as the backup "Source". There's no screen specific help button on the screens where these terms are mentioned.

To backup an individual directory, it looks like you have to specify a "Selecting" option separate from the "Source" option where the "Selecting" option let's you specify substring to match against filenames/directoris when looking at the "Source". Again there's no screen specific help button in the "Selecting" screen.

I'm trying to backup the files in a singe directory right now, but Retrospect seems to be scanning all files and folders on my Mac. I'm actually writing this review while waiting for Dantz to scan my whole hard drive.

This seems brain damaged. I suspect I'm doing something wrong. So I'll go read the manual and figure it out, but that's exactly the problem. You have to read the manual to use this product.

I'm also curious about why Retrospect has to scan each file on the whole hard disk *before* starting the backup. When finishing a whole disk backup it spends something like a half hour "closing files" (after files have already been backed up and verified on my 60 Gbyte disk with 15 Gbytes of space used). ...

4-0 out of 5 stars This is the only game in town for a general Mac utility
In an earlier review I lamented how Techtool had seemed degraded in its performance since its upgrade to vers. 4.0 and Mac OS X compatibility. I have since learned that Symantec, maker of Norton Utilities, has indeed decided to no longer upgrade their general utility program. (According to news reports, they will continue to upgrade their virus and Internet Security software.)

So what does this mean for Mac users? For one, DiskWarrior is a must have. As for Techtool, there's almost no choice - you have to have a general utility that's more powerful than Apple's rather weak First Aid. Here's hoping that Micromat comes up with a good update to Techtool and gets it back to the days of when it was arguably the best utility for the Mac.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Micromat's best effort
I've been using Macs and utility programs such as Techtool and Norton for about a decade now.

Through the years I would say that Norton Utilities and Techtool have traded back and forth in the top position as the best utility to own. As a fan of Techtool 3 I would say that Micromat had the better product for several years.

I can't say that now.

Running a B&W upgraded to a 500 MHz G4 with ample RAM I've yet to find Techtool 4.0.4 useful - under either Mac OS 10.2 or 10.3. My first major problem Techtool couldn't fix and I quickly purchased a copy of DiskWarrior which, although slow, fixed the problem. But DiskWarrior only fixes the disk directory. You need a broader utility such as Techtool or Norton for general errors.

Now I've got some new problems with my hard drives (I have three in my machine). Techtool says it found the errors and, if I want them fixed, I have to redo the test with the "repair on" button checked. Well, the button _was_ checked. Infuriating.

Overall, I'd say that Techtool 3 was a far better product. The interface seemed far more friendly and you knew that when you told the program to automatically fix errors that it would do so. Unfortunately, Vers. 3 isn't meant for OS X.

I'm giving Vers. 4 three stars, not because of what it has done, but because I assume it will earn its keep eventually - or perhaps they'll release an update to this version which will address these problems. In any case, you never can have too many disk repair utilities. Still, I think it's time to venture back to Norton to see what they've got cooking. It certainly can't be any less functional and helpful than this. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Great program for people whose lives are too enjoyable
I'd read superb reviews of Retrospect, so I was extremely disappointed with the unintuitive interface, the limited choice of backup drives supported (Iomega, for instance, is not among the Anointed, for the most part), and the inability of the program to perform basic functions despite coming with reams of (electronic) documentation. I've got to agree with bunab -- it's all very un-Mac-like. And, like bunab, I'm no newbie -- I've spent plenty of time installing and using software, troubleshooting hardware/software problems. So it's not that I'm a few Bradys short of a Bunch.

This is a very stubborn program and it's turning me into a very grumpy person.

1-0 out of 5 stars Frustration Ware PLUS
My honest rating: MINUS 5 stars.

An ideal gift for someone you despise or a masochist you want to please. It is worse than useless.

I have been using Macs since 1988, and I have never, repeat NEVER had as much trouble with any other application I have ever used. This is a quintessential example of an "un-Mac-like" and "non-intuitive" program. In spite of possibly forty hours of trying, I have been unable to make it work.

I have a Mac G3, 128 meg RAM, 4GB & 9GB hard drives, and a USB writable CD. I cannot get this program to even RECOGNIZE any drive but the one with the current operating system. Dantz technical support has been of no help.

Perhaps the problem is with me. I am an ex-computer programmer with a BS in physics (with honors) from Caltech, a year towards a PhD in physics from MIT (five A's and one B), and have an M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School.

Maybe I am just not smart enough to use this program.

My suggestion: Eschew Obfuscation and buy a different program.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good and Very Easy
I bought this product, did not read my manual and still all my backups are safe, I use the internal CD-RW/DVD of my G4 that is supported now and working fine.

The best thing about this product is it's very intuitive user interface. I clicked around a couple of time and did the first succesful backup ten minutes after installing it.

If you want your data to be safe, and you do not want to spent time thinking about backups, BUY this product and get it over with. There a lot nicer things to do than backup and the people that make this software obviously understood that!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Simple, effective, limited
This program works, and works well for all external SCSI
devices.

Read that again carefully: external SCSI devices.

Got that new mac with the DVD-R/CD-RW drive, not supported.

Got floppies: Fine
Got a supported (and the list is long) external SCSI CD-RW: fine
Got an external Jaz/Zip/HD on that SCSI bus: fine.

Don't have a SCSI bus in that new 867Mhz G4: sorry, get one.
But if you have that external SCSI device, this is the simple,
effective and easy way to backup. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The days of the simple CD-burning utility are seemingly over, and in thecase of Roxio's Toast 5 Titanium, it's a good thing. Lately we've been seeing CD-burning software that attempts to do everything but clean the kitchensink, with varying levels of success. In the case of Toast 5, the proverbialsink is spotless. Plenty of useful features like CD labeling, audio extraction,and data storage provide meat-and-potatoes satiation. The ability to remove hissand crackle from old LPs, and Toast's new OS X-influenced interface, is like thecherry on top of the dessert. And, of course, the bread-and-butter feature isToast's delicious burning options.

Roxio has kept the functionality of its drag-and-drop window intact from theprevious version, only now the design is reminiscent of a funky '50s dinerjukebox. The window is resizable, with simple buttons specifying the type of CDyou wish to burn. Click audio, data, copy, or other, and the button turns blue.Pop a blank CD-R into your drive, drag your files into the window, hit that bigred glowing record button in the corner, and you're cooking. Toast 5 continuesto support all major CD formats (like the previous version), and additionalformats including MP3, Mac/ISO hybrid, and VideoCD (playable on many DVDplayers). If that was all there is to this package, we'd be done right here,satisfied, and ready for a nap.

But, as we've mentioned, Roxio has loaded plenty of goodies onto the Toast 5CD-ROM, some of them frivolous and fattening, (isn't that what goodies are for?)some of them extremely useful sides. We particularly like iView Multimedia,which lets you catalog all your images, building a thumbnail library for easyorganization and retrieval. Also cool is CD Spin Doctor. Although we love ourvinyl here at Amazon.com, we've yet to see a device that will play records inthe car. CD Spin Doctor is a simple application that will digitize and create awaveform of your old LPs and cassettes, then let you add simple filters toimprove the audio. Remove hiss, clicks, and pops, and then burn the result toaudio CD.

There's plenty more on the table. Magic Mouse Discus is a basic labeling kit foryour CDs. Or you can export included templates to Freehand 9, AppleWorks, orQuark for more complex graphic design for your labels. New in Toast 5 is theuseful background burning capability, allowing you to work in other applicationswhile Toast is cooking up your discs. Make sure you have plenty of RAM for thisfunction. You even get folders filled with excellent digital photographs andfree music from popular groups and musicians.

We could go on listing savory features, yet will contain ourselves and simplyadmonish the Macintosh users among you: There's no reason not to buy Toast 5Titanium. It's a well-balanced, nutritious software program that will slake yourravenous hunger. --John Bosch ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Feeling Toasty
Toast is a really nice software package, although quirky at times. All the blame can't be placed on Toast. It, like so many other software titles, adds extensions to your Mac which can conflict with so many other extensions. Still, if your Mac is reasonably conflict free, you should be able to burn CDs or DVDs with fervor. The interface is clean, although not intuitive enough. (Click-and-hold a button for options is not an obvious method.) Toast does a very good job of burning Mac data, PC data and hybrid data CDs. Audio burning has also been improved in this version and, Toast can now recognize an audio image file to find track breaks. Previously only Jam was smart enough to recognize individual tracks in an audio image.
Some tips: Increase the memory allocation to the application. Give Toast a large buffer (64K). Try to avoid disk-at-once recording. DAO is good for "live" recordings, where you don't want an audible gap between tracks, but it taxes the system. If you can stand to have gaps between the tracks, track-at-once is more reliable. Use test mode to determine if your system is able to transfer data quickly enough for the speed you've requested for a burn. DAO and high-speed burning require data to be transferred at very high data rates. You may find you need to burn at a slower speed to achieve reliable burns. The "Toast CD Reader" extension is only needed if you intend to use your CD burner to read existing data or audio CDs. If you only want to burn CDs with your burner, you can safely run without the extension.
Background burning is a nice feature, but, if you are using the system for other tasks while burning, you are at risk for data underruns. Also, if your source is MP3 files, remember, MP3s must be converted before actually being written to your new CD. This too can add to the delays in data transfer. If you have the disk space, convert MP3 files to AIFF files before burning and use the AIFF files with Toast for more reliable results.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential tool for your Mac
I used my new iMac with superdrive for almost four months before I discovered this program. It took a bit of research for me to learn why I needed this program when OS X comes with its own built in CD/DVD burn software. If all you need to do is burn discs for backup and make music CDs and DVDs - you don't need Toast. However, if you want to make PC-compatible DVDs or CDs or want to burn DVD-R's that will play in a DVD player without using the iDVD application, then you need Toast.

Basically anything I have wanted to do with a CD/DVD burner, this sofware supported it. I had no problems with install and it has worked flawlessly since I installed it. The user interface is highly intutive and I have not had to crack open the help more than once. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars May be preferable to Toast 6
Apple's iTunes does fine by burning CD's, but Toast is handier for burning and copying non-musical files and documents. In fact, Toast 5, with the bundled Spin Doctor, is the only way to go if you're converting analog to digital and editing out "dead space" and other objectionable noise on the wave forms. Toast 6, on the other hand, includes an "improved" Spin Doctor (v. 2) that makes the aforesaid editing a laborious, imprecise, and impractical exercise. If you're planning to do manual editing of extended audio tracks--a radio broadcast, for example--forget about Toast 6. But now you have another messy problem: Toast 5 is not designed for OSX, and Roxio no longer offers as a download the necessary upgrade to make Spin Doctor, v. 1, compatible with OSX.

The solution? Go with Toast 5 and use it in OS9. Or switch to a shareware program like Sound Studio (more complicated and time-consuming than Spin Doctor). Or switch to a PC and pick up Cool Edit.

2-0 out of 5 stars ripped off
I bought toast 5 to burn my vinyl onto CD.
It came with SpinDoctor.
I was promised a FREE upgrade to OSX. When I upgraded my OS, I went to download the upgrade. Though Toast 5 could be upgraded, Spin Doctor was not available. After weeks of waiting, I got a response from Roxio saying that SpinDoctor was no longer available from them. I wrote several letters. They offered no remedy, just kept me waiting, but oh yes, they would be happy to SELL me a copy of Toast 6 with the new component that replaces SpinDoctor and is OSX compatible. Boy do I feel ripped off. Toast worked great, but I will never trust Roxio again. I certainly don't want to give them any more money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Mac users
Great overall for Macs. I got this software mainly due to the fact that iPhoto does not allow for multisession burning. Using this software allows me to achieve this although it not as easy as I originally thought (nothing is as easy as using Mac software - oh well). Also, I had some problems making cross-platform (Mac/PC) discs.
Additionally, the included Discus software is pretty good for making labels. ... Read more
