Retrospect Virtual supports file-level granular restore for VMs. In the past, IT administrators needed to restore an entire VM to extract a single file from it. With RunDirect, this VM restore was fast, but with Granular Restore, administrators can skip the VM restore altogether.
“These product updates ensure our customers are completely protected on the latest systems with additional features like database protection, daily backup report emails, and VM file-level restore,” said Jean-Christian Dumas, VP, WW sales. “With Retrospect, our customers know that their business’s digital assets are safe from accidents, hardware failure, theft, disaster, and ransomware.“
Retrospect 12.5 for Windows and Retrospect 14.5 for Mac are free for customers that have Retrospect 12.x for Windows and Retrospect 14.x for Mac and available. The latest version of Retrospect Virtual is also available as a free update to customers.
These software are available in six languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese.
