Can the New Version Back Up to an FTP Site?

Recommended Posts

I used an older version of this software for many years but have been away from it now for a while.

 

I'm wondering if this new version will backup files to an FTP site.

If not, then I'm wondering if I can force the backup files to my local disk to be 2 GB in size max so I can use a third-party FTP folder monitoring app to upload the files to an FTP site.

 

Thanks.

Retrospect can use WebDAV for cloud storage, not FTP.

 

When using disk backup sets, the size of the backup files are about 650MB. (I think that was chosen many years ago to fit a CD-R.)

There are third party utilities that can mount an FTP site as local drive. I guess that might be an option. Google "ftp mount"

How reliable that might be is another matter :(

Thanks.  It seems like Retrospect isn't really designed nor appropriate for FTP backups.  It's also substantially more expensive than equivalent backup applications so I'll probably take a pass for now.  It sure does work well for local backups though--especially remote PC backups over the network.
