Seems a trivial question, but I installed the Retrospect Engine for error on a client machine, how do I safely uninstall the Retrospect Engine ?

Naively I tried to delete the Retrospect app in the Application folder, but I keep on seeing the Retrospect Engine icon in the Preference panel.

Thanks Lennart.

Citing your reference:

  1. Open the Retrospect application folder and double-click the Uninstall Retrospect icon to run the uninstaller.

One doubt: I do not have a "Retrospect application folder". In the Applications folder I can see just the Retrospect app, therefore where do I look for the Uninstall Retrospect icon ? 

Am I missing something ??

I think I found the solution: go to /Library/Application Support/Retrospect and manual delete the Engine.

Anyway I cannot find the "uninstall Retrospect" icon as suggested in the Mac User's Guide, I suspect it's an older version setup.

Neither can I, when I look in my own folder. It seems as Retrospect needs to update its user guide.

Lennart_T,

I am shocked that you of all people would say such a thing (see the second and third paragraphs) about the UG.;)

Since I'm sure you're just as tired as I am of dealing with the lack of UG updating, I suggest you write (which I've done) to Rod Harrison—the Chief Technology Officer of Drobo who probably now has some influence at Retrospect "Inc".  If you want to impress him with a Swedish-stamped "snail-mail":

Drobo

    Attn.: Mr. Rod Harrison, CTO

1289 Anvilwood Ave.

Sunnyvale, CA 94089

USA

However, if you are willing to enroll in LinkedIn—which I am not because of delete-finger tiredness—you should be able to get an e-mail address for Harrison there.
