1-0 out of 5 stars The Worst
On 3 different Macs initial backups failed with 10s of thousands of errors. Tried different drives. Networked or not networked. Returned 2 firewire drives thinking they were the problem. Not.

If you buy this make sure you test it out thoroughly before your 30 days are up. After wasting days of my time trying to work these problems I called tech support, on the 41st day. For $70 they would have helped me. I declined.

I used this software 10 or 12 years ago and loved it. Times have changed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars .Mac for Mac
I have been a .Mac member since its inception. To fully appreciate the benefits, you really need a high-speed internet connection (DSL or Cable.)
Benefit: An email account with a 15 MB storage limit. (with a mac.com domain name.) You can access mail by using either a web browser (at any location with Internet access) or through any POP-3 mail application (such as Apple's own mail application, Eudora or Entourage.) You can purchase additional email storage space and additional email accounts for other members of your family.
Benefit: Your own private iDisk. iDisk is an online disk drive. Initially, you start with 100 MB of iDisk storage. (If 100 MB is not enough, you can purchase additional space.) iDisk will allow you to backup your important data or share photos or other legally obtained data. You decide what data is public and what remains private. You can build web pages and publish them, because .Mac also acts as a web hosting service.
Benefit: Software downloads; some full applications, some demos - all conveniently accessed from your iDisk (or conventional download, if you prefer.)
Benefit: .Mac also offers a number of discounts.
Other bebefits include an online calendar, data synchronization among multiple computers, online technical support, online tutorials, in the Learning Center and Virex antivirus software and its frequently updated virus definitions.
.Mac is definitely worthwhile. The only thing you really need to decide for yourself, "is it worth the price of admission?" My answer is a hearty "YES!"

5-0 out of 5 stars .Mac Keeps Getting Better
As an early adopter to Apple's new .Mac service, I was mildly impressed. Certainly, the e-mail service had some issues in 2003, but overall, things were good.

Today, however, in 2004, .Mac has become much more useful, stable, and fast. The new design of www.mac.com is both speedy and efficient; my e-mail works flawlessly. There are also more tools to use, such as Homepage and iCard additions. More importantly, being a .Mac subscriber now pays dividends in the form of free software, discounts, and more. I've received at least 2 programs free from .Mac that I use daily.

All around, a great choice!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, but apple should make it cheaper outside the US.
Wonderful service and software. I think I costs around $ 120~130 in Japan and that should be made cheaper as well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, easy-to-use, powerful software... No more Retrospect!
I have a license of Retrospect but guess what, I never use it..ever.. I'm a fairly knowledgable Mac user and could "learn" how to use Retrospect but the fact it, I use a Mac because of it's beautiful User Interface and sensible features... I've been waiting for a better-designed backup utility for OS X as I hate Retrospect's archaic interface and the way it works... Data Backup is just as powerful, but easier for the user to understand.. I know MANY friends that have accidentily erased data because Retrospect wasn't too clear in terms of what each option did... Data Backup is so easy, your kids can set it up... Don't wait for your hard drive to take a dive and copying to CDs is too damn time-consumming.. Data backup is easy, powerful and for Amazon's price, it's an incredible deal--- ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best and easiest mac backup utility
This is so easy to use and does exactly what I need. So far I've tried Retrospect Express (way to complex and it has very poor documentation), Iomega Quicksync (just not powerful enough and it's not reliable) and the File Sync control panal in mac 9.2 (doesn't do simple one-way backup). There are several ways to backup, a simple copy file, a smart copy (only copies when there's a change), and syncronize keeps tracks of two versions and keeps both current. It's seamless and reliable. Strongest recomendation for mac-like ease of use. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This product is a license. The software described below must be purchased separately.

Retrospect Workgroup Backup protects files on any 20 networked desktops, notebooks, or a local server. Retrospect Workgroup Backup supports backup of a Mac server as well as any other Macintosh computer on the same subnet.

Install Retrospect Backup along with a storage device. Install included client software on the other computers, and backup everyone over the network. As soon as they connect, notebook users are protected automatically. Installation is quick and easy--Retrospect Backup immediately recognizes your storage device and automatically loads the appropriate driver.

Retrospect Backup's EasyScript wizard builds a complete backup schedule for you. Individual users don't have to copy files to the server, as Retrospect backs up everyone automatically. Incremental backups save time and media. Equally important for data security is having more than one backup set. Retrospect Backup supports incremental backups to multiple complete backup sets. Retrospect Backup makes it easy to restore individual files or an entire hard disk, including the registry, in a single step--even after incremental backups. Other backup applications make you restore a full backup and then each incremental backup session, one by one. After backing up, Retrospect rereads the original files and compares them to the stored files, byte for byte. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Failed when I need it most
I've been using RE 5.0 for about 18 months. It isn't intuitive, and every time I made a backup I had to re-learn the non-standard interface, but I was able to make backups.

My hard drive volumes were trashed beyond repair while installing another product, so I inserted the RE CD to restore my disk. Unfortunately, everytime the boot-up gets about 90% done, I get a System error message and the whole thing locks up.

Now I have a crashed computer, a complete backup of my files on an external Firewire, and a completely useless CD with Retrospect Express printed on it.

Incidentally, the 2 other applications that I bought to help me during these events also didn't work. It's quite a beautiful thing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating
I bought this a year ago to back up my home Mac. Here's my primary complaints :

1. It's "compression" often makes files larger than the original, especially with compressed file formats (mp3s, jpegs, etc). You can turn off compression for a whole backup set, but not for individual directories.
2. It is not easy to use to back up portions of your system. I have 180 GB of hard drive space, but much of that is scratch space for digital work that I don't want backed up (iMovie directories are especially huge). So I only select individual directories to backup. Retrospect is not very helpful at sorting out these directories while Apple's Backup does some work for you (just check a box for Address Book, and Backup gets the right files).
3. I use a standard Pioneer DVR-104 Superdrive. Of a catalog of 14 CD-R's, Retrospect makes 6 coasters. Thats an almost 50% failure rate. With these exact same disks burned from the Finder, I have burned 100+ CD-R with zero failures. Retrospect's drivers are horrible.
4. Catalog failures. I get them all the time. And they never repair themselves. Start from scratch with a new backup set.
5. Cost! I figured Retrospect was a bargain at first: Apple's Backup would be [$$$], and I needed none of the other services from .Mac. But Retrospect has already released a tiny point upgrade to 5.1 that would cost me an upgrade fee. Nope, sorry, that was the last straw.

I switched to Apple's Backup recently and have been much happier. It does not do incremental backups like Retrospect, but who cares, at least it works. I can get most of my important stuff on a single DVD-R with Backup, so its not that big of a deal.

1-0 out of 5 stars Too bad it is the only game in town
I have about 15 years experience programming for the PC and the Mac. I bought this product basically because there did not seem to be much else on the market. I would describe it as odd, and somewhat useless.

I tried to back up 10 gb of data from my Powerbook hard drive to a firewire external disk. After some odd displays of counting over 100,000 files on my hard drive (there are actually less than 8,000) it announced that it could not deal with over 2 gb of data. That might have been ok in 1993, but not now.

Then I tried the duplicate function. Again it counts zillions of non-existent files, then runs for 12 hours, then announces that it quits for unknown reasons after doing about 3 gb of data. I have tried this 6 times now and no joy.

So I have had this product about a month and it has yet to be able to backup 10 gb of data.

Two other comments: first, the prompts and messages seem to be written by someone for whom english is a very second or third language, and by someone who is utterly unfamiliar with the Apple style book. Second, as far as I can tell, it has no smart backup feature, where you can ask it to back up just files that have been touched since the last back up.

All in all, I recommend that you pass on this product and write your own back up script.

1-0 out of 5 stars I hate it!
I'm an experience Macintosh user, and have used an earlier full version of Retrospect at work to back up 40 Macs on our network. I bought Retrospect Express 5.0 to back up my iMac at home. First there were problems installing this software, then it fought me every step of the way with its inscrutible instructions, long wait times, and failures. I give up. Don't buy this junk. I just wasted $...!

1-0 out of 5 stars Has not improved
Five(?) years ago I owned a very early version of this product which I used on a Mac PowerBook. Then I found it difficult to set up and use with almost incomprehensible instructions. I recently bought a new PowerBook and my current easy to use back up program (Copy Agent will not work OS X. (Although I am considering dumping OS X too - but that's another story) I thought I would try Retrospect Express to back up to Zip 250 discs. Well, the program has not improved and has proven as inscrutable to use as the first time. I spent five hours over several days trying to set it up. The user interface is not intuitive and the language used in the instructions is almost incomprehensible. And the language usage is beyond belief ... "Forget" instead of "Delete?" Give me a break. My hat is off to those who have mastered this backward looking program. ... Read more

The downside to this software tool is that all tech support [is expensive], even for new purchasers.
I have a LaCie Pocket Drive that works very nicely with my Mac PowerBook. But I was unable to get Retropect to back up to the Pocket Drive, even after doing all that was recommended by Dantz's manual and on-line help.
This is a simple configuration. It should be a piece of cake for backup software. I will look for other backup solutions rather than pay a third again the street price of this software package every time I have a simple problem.
Bottom line: This is a complex piece of software that may well cost you more than its purchase price to make it function satisfactorily. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Making regular backups of data is one of those onerous tasks many of usresent, but all it takes is one hard drive failure to make us wish we'd beenmore diligent all along. Although Connectix CopyAgent leaves users who rely onCD-R or CD-RW devices for their backup needs in the cold, it helps those withaccess to networked Macs or external drives create a routine for the archivingof files and folders, integrating a handful of features into your system thatmake day-to-day file management more convenient in the process.

CopyAgent offers four different ways of copying files on your Mac, during abackup or otherwise. Normal Copy treats files like the Mac OS normally does;SmartReplace only copies new or changed documents; SmartMerge works likeSmartReplace, but leaves files and folders in the destination folder that havebeen removed from the source; and Synchronize merges the most recent items inboth source and destination folders.

The Copy Scheduler itself is extremely easy to use. After stepping us throughWhat (which files and folders should be included), Where (the destination can bean external hard drive, removable cartridge device, or networked volume), How(Normal Copy, SmartReplace, SmartMerge, or Synchronize), and When (setting yourtimed schedule), our backups ran flawlessly.

Some of CopyAgent's other useful finder enhancements include the ability todelete files in a secure manner (preventing recovery), and circumventing theconfirmation dialog that normally pops up when you try to trash a locked file.On the other hand, Fast File Erase's ability to empty trash in the backgroundwould be more impressive if recent releases of Mac OS didn't already have thatcapability. We also found that the speed gains promised by Fast File Erase andCopyAgent's Network Copy were minor in normal workday situations. CopyAgent'sone major flaw, however, is its lack of support for CD-R or CD-RW devices.

CopyAgent also includes TurboKeys, a utility that lets you navigate through anyfile menu with keyboard shortcuts, or use hot-keys to open folders, files, orapplications. It isn't for everyone, but it can be a general productivitybooster, adding a nice value to the CopyAgent package. --Jack Gardiner ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Changing again
CopyAgent 1.0 is the latest version of an old familiar friend by Connectix, the old SpeedDisk programs. The problem with SpeedDisk was every time Apple updated its system, even the baby steps within a version (say version 7.5 to 7.6), SpeedDisk would again suddenly become useless and a new version would have to be found. Now that Apple has moved to OS 9 and OS 10, SpeedDisk has become useless, but this time many of the good features of those programs are now part of the OS itself and what Connectix is left with is the copying features of the old program, which they put out as Copy Agent. Though pricey for just that one remaining feature, nothing handles the speeding up of copying better and those with big folders needed to be backed up to ZIP or other format will be happy to see the program going through the folder picking out only what needs to be changed and leaving the rest. It saves lots of time, and time is money. You makes your choices and I opted to be "bilked " by Connectix once again for yet another version. ... Read more
