Retrospect 7.5 Released

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I don't have a number for you but this may help:

 

In 6.5 and 7.0, Retrospect has to open every single file on disk to collect security information to build the snapshot. This happens regardless of if you are doing a full or incremental backup.

 

Retrospect 7.5 only needs to open new and changed files when creating the snapshot. Obviously that will drop the snapshot creation time dramatically.

 

I've talked to people who went from 9 hours to 3. Your mileage may vary but it will be _much_ faster. FWIW Matching is much faster too.

 

Thanks

Nate

 


 

 

As a preliminary followup, we've seen our nightly backup times go from 8-9 hours to 3-4 hours under Retrospect 7.5. 1.3 million files, of which 550,000 are in a single source volume. So far so good! smile.gif

I am creating a new Retrospect 7.5 server on an new Dell 2950, w/1TB HDD, and 8GB memory. Can I run the Retrospect server under Windows 2003 R2 and 64-bit OS?
