Derek,

This is possible with both Retrospect for Macintosh and Windows. See p. 193
of the Retrospect 4.2 User's Guide for information on how to do this with
AppleScript and Retrospect for Mac. See p. 12 of the Retrospect 5.1 User's
Guide Addendum for information on how to do this with a batch file script
and Retrospect for Windows.

As always, call Dantz tech support with any questions (though due to the
complex nature of external scripting, we can only provide limited technical
support for AppleScript and batch file scripts).

Regards,

Matthew Tevenan
