    I am experiencing the same issue as well. Latest build of Retrospect, Client, and Exchange. Noticed it after upgrading to the latest Client version. Assert_Log.utx grows and grows every night. The backups are verifying properly each night, so I do not think anything is going wrong. Seems to me like a software developer is writing too much to his debug log...
  2. We're going to be consolidating many servers to virtual servers in the upcoming months, and will be looking for a good backup solution for them. Would definitely prefer to stay with our already large investment in Retrospect, which has worked well over the years. Virtual Server (and the upcoming Hyper-V) has a nice VSS writer for taking complete and incremental backups of Virtual Machines (including configuration, system state, and hard disks), but right now MS DPM 2007 is the only product that actually uses it. Backing up the VHDs is of course impractical due to their size and inability to perform incremental backups, and running the backup agent inside of each Virtual Host is at best a clumsy solution. Would definitely pay $$$ for an add-on that supports Virtual Server's VSS writer, much like Exchange, SQL, etc. See: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/a9775265-c5f4-403b-9b80-4f7753506e151033.mspx?mfr=true

    Exchange 2007

    Ditto on the hat throwing here too. We've had Exchange 2007 implemented since the early Exhcange 2007 betas and having backup integrated into Retrospect would be a major blessing. Just an FYI, for those of you are seeking to backup Exchange 2007, you can use the built-in Windows Backup (NTBackup) tool to backup Exchange 2007. That being said, it is certainly no substitute for an Exchange agent, since you'll have to monitor two systems, manage two sets of backup media, and maintain two backup schedules.
