Nowadays, almost every person and every company stores crucial information on their computers, so a major data loss would often represent a real problem. Preventing such a thing from happening has become essential and this is why applications like Retrospect are very useful.

Retrospect is a dependable program that helps you backup the information on your computer and restore it in case you need to. This versatile application can be successfully used as a solution for large companies, small businesses as well as for your home computer.

You will quickly discover that there are a lot of advantages to using Retrospect. Firstly, the application has cloud storage capabilities, so you will be able to backup and restore data from offsite locations. Moreover, this program can encrypt the data that it saves with the 256-bits AES algorithm, thus keeping your information safe from prying eyes.

One of the traits that really impressed me was the disaster recovery feature, which will help you get back all the data from a completely crashed partition, including your operating system. What’s even better, Retrospect has an add-on that will allow you to restore everything you backed up (even the Windows) to totally different hardware.

Another thing that I liked about this application was the care shown for the comfort of its users. Retrospect doesn’t only use smart incremental backups, but it also automatically cleans the data that it stores (according to your rules) in order to save as much disk space as possible. Furthermore, the application can create reports of the operations that it performed, so you will always know what was backed up and when.

In conclusion, Retrospect is a program that I recommend. The application does its job well and offers a user-friendly interface, so I’m fairly certain that its users will be satisfied with it.
