  1. At support's recommendation we recently "upgraded" our server from release 8.1 to 8.2. The email notification didn't work in release 8.1 (actually I think it broke in 8.0) so support recommended that it was fixed in 8.2. It was only half fixed in 8.2 - we get an error in the log, but a least the emails are sent. I have to say that our email server is about a plain jane as you can get--and hasn't changed much in the past 10 years. It's pretty clear that retrospect does the most cursory QC before shipping a release to not have found this bug. So we upgraded to 8.2 which just fails to do backups (hey, what should we expect it's backup software) and crashes with an "Assertion failure at db.cpp-170". When I submitted this bug to retrospect, their answer was "This error is caused by a bug in Retrospect 8.2. We are releasing fix for this bug later this month. Until that fix is released, you will probably want to return to Retrospect 8.1, which should not experience this error. ". The "we're releasing a fix sometime later" and "should not experience" doesn't give me much confidence. What ever happened to TESTING the software before releasing it? My irritation with retrospect is particularly compounded by the nearly daily spammy marketing emails promoting their new PerfectDisk defrag software. Yea right, they can't even ship a working version of backup software and I'm going to trust them to scribble all over my disk trying to defrag it.
