As you say, this should work. Retrospect should be able to back up a server
mounted on your desktop, emulating AppleShare. Different server software
packages do AppleShare emulation in varied ways, so we can only say for sure
that true AppleShare and NT Services for Mac will definitely work, but I
don't know of any that we recommend against. All known issues along these
lines are listed in the latest Retrospect Read Me. You view this at


Also, I'm surprised you didn't hear back from Tech Support. We pride
ourselves on our responsiveness. Are you sure you e-mailed us at
[EMAIL PROTECTED] or [EMAIL PROTECTED]? I'm not showing any
incoming e-mails from you to either of these addresses. Please e-mail me
offline if you have any further questions.

> Subject: Retrospect and Quantum Snap Server
> Does anyone out there have first-hand knowledge of backing up Quantum
> SnapServers (or other NAS) in a Macintosh environment?
> I know it should work, but I get a funny feeling when I think about backing up
> 120 Gb of data as a mounted volume...
> If anyone has tried it, I'd like to know:
> * what the volume size was
> * the OS version of the machine it was mounted on to be backed up
> * how it was mounted to the host machine (TCP/IP or AppleTalk)
> * whether they have had any problems retaining a connection to it when backing
> up large amounts of data
> I emailed Dantz support about this but received no reply.
