I have had to do this a couple of times (with WinNT Workstation not Server)
and all I did was backup the Dantz directory and catalog directory before
reaching for the OS Restore CD and rebuilding the machine.

After reinstalling Retrospect I just replaced the Dantz directory and
catalog directory with the copies I saved.

It worked for me.

Play it safe ... do a full backup of the backup machine (and a safety)
before embarking on this exercise.  If you have a full backup all will go
well ... bad things usually happen when you don't have a backup.

Cheers,  Malcolm
