Bottom Line

Pricey, powerful backup program is slightly easier to use, but its interface still needs a tune-up.

Would you buy this?

Experienced users of Retrospect will be more interested in the new ability to launch backups using a single hot-key combination, or the predefined filters that let you easily skip backing up nonessential files such as MP3s. There's also more power under the hood: 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard capabilities, support for WORM (Write-Once Read-Many) tape backup for government and industry data-preservation standards compliance, and the ability to archive to 8.5GB double-layer DVD+R discs.

Retrospect Professional remains the cream of the crop in desktop backup software. If you're a newcomer to this application, sample the trial version before you purchase the pricey full version.

As an existing user, I didn't find the new features worth the upgrade fee. Before I spring for such an update, I want Dantz to make the program truly easier to use.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
