This is a repeat of a request I made last year. We need Retrospect to alert us when a client has not completed a backup in a certain number of days. 95% of our clients are mobile, so backups typically fail as they move on and off of the network throughout the day. Ergo, using the existing option to "send e-mail for failure and media requests" isn't particularly helpful, since failures are relatively normal. The client software produces a popup after no backups have completed for 7 days or more, i believe. Unfortunately, we can't rely on users to tell us about this. We really need the server to report that information to us.
Hello Dantz, We run Retrospect Single Server w/Unlimited Clients in our office. All of our backup clients are mobile, so with people moving around and disconnecting frequently, there are several incompleted backups throughout the day. We had to turn email alerting off, because we received alerts for each incomplete backup. I think that alerts about clients that have not been backed up in X days would be very helpful. Thanks.
