Dissimilar Hardware Restore in Professional Posted September 23, 2019 · Report reply NoelC, It turns out that what you really want to look at is the Online Store. Under Add-Ons are two different lines: "Dissimilar Hardware Restore Disk-to-Disk BDD16R1WN | BDD16R1WC" at US$239 without ASM (that's the price in the Configurator; it's probably the BDD16R1WN sales code), and "Dissimilar Hardware Restore Desktop BDH16R1WN | BDH16R1WC" at US$99 without ASM (it's probably the BDH16R1WN sales code). The difference between the BDD and BDH sales codes seems to be whether you purchased your basic Retrospect license as Disk-to-Disk or Desktop; from your OP it sounds as if you did the latter. Again, contact a human being in Retrospect Sales; he/she would like to sell you something, to make StorCentric management happy. If I worked for Retrospect Product Marketing, it seems I would have to receive supplementary "soak the (presumed) rich installation" indoctrination. IMHO the Dissimilar Hardware Restore Add-On was designed for offices where Suzy only gets a new machine when her existing machine dies of extreme old age, so there is no way the office's management could have "bought a newer machine of the same lineage".
