  1. Ah that is great news, thanks. I have separate backup sets for all my clients, so this would then mean that I can have parallel backups of each, which is exactly what I had hoped for. Yes, I had seen that all subsequent updates were primarily about supporting the latest Windows versions and seasonal releases. I never ran into issues backing up, but like you state, the main question is also about restoring. I admit that I have not tried to restore anything yet with Windows 11 so maybe I was running a risk there that I wasn't even realizing. Which reminds me to soon do a couple test restores again. Anyway, guess I will be upgrading to 18.

  2. Without storage groups you can backup one client to one destination at a time. Which means that with multiple destinations (backup sets), you can backup multiple clients simultaneously. That could make sense if you group your clients according to where they belong in the organisation. For instance, finance department computers use the finance backup set, production department computers use the production backup set and so on. Each department can then be backed up simultaneously as the departments. With storage groups you can have a large backup set for all computers and several clients can be backed up to that backup set simultaneously. Having a single, large, backup set may or may not be an advantage. Besides, version 12 is outdated by now. For instance, recent Windows 10 versions are not supported and not Windows 11. If you run older versions of Windows you may be fine with Retrospect 12, otherwise I would not trust it to restore without problems.

  3. That could be a possibility. I'm still fairly new to the job, only been here for 6 months and Retrospect was handed off to me by my predecessor. I guess this could have happened before I got hired and our backup drive was just slowly filling up without anyone noticing (I personally didn't even know what to look out for at the time because I was so new and inexperienced). I basically had to learn Retrospect as I went while trying to solve this problem. Everything seems to be working fine now; our backup drive matches our master drive and all backups have been running smoothly for the past week.
