Here's how Retrospect for Macintosh works with Windows NT and 2000 clients. Retrospect for Macintosh: o backs up and restores BOTH Windows NT and 2000 registries using Dantz's Registry Backup Manager; o does NOT back up NTFS security permissions; o does NOT back up Macintosh files on NT/2000 Servers running Services for Macintosh; o does NOT back up Windows 2000 Server-specific System State information such as Active Directory and Com+. (Retrospect for Macintosh will copy the state information if you use Microsoft's built-in backup tool to save a local copy.) o does back up Windows 2000 Professional (other than NTFS security data). Again, if you are running Windows Servers, we recommend you use Retrospect for Windows. Retrospect for Windows: o backs up and restores all Windows registry data (95/98/Me/NT/2000) directly; o backs up NTFS security permissions and Macintosh files on NT/2000 Servers running Services for Macintosh; o backs up all Windows 2000-specific System State information directly (requires Retrospect Workgroup or Server). Some observations: Before releasing Retrospect for Windows, we made extraordinary efforts to ensure that backup of a Macintosh to a Windows computer running Retrospect is as good as it has been to a Macintosh. We wanted to ensure that the Mac didn't take a back seat to any other platform. We are now working to ensure Windows clients are treated equally by Mac and Windows versions of Retrospect, but we are also working hard on Mac OS X support and other Mac advancements. It's natural for the Macintosh and Windows products to leapfrog each other. I'm sure we're going to get some complaints from our Retrospect for Windows customers that our Mac OS X support lags behind our Retrospect for Mac OS X support.
