I don't know about the rest of you, but I am so sick of faulty backups, incompatable devices, lost clients and so much more that I could go on forever about Restrospect server. Does anyone know of an alternative to Retrospect server that works well with Mac and PC's? http://www.macgurus.com/ubb/mad.gif

Nope.

I got tired of Retrospect on X. Have been running it for years on 8/9 (bought v.5 server for too much money for an upgrade) with the hopes of running it on a G4 w/ OS X Server, but finally gave up after repeated "updates" and attempts, and put it back on ol' faithful - Beige G3 tower running 9.

Runs decent that way backing up both Macs (OS 8 thru 10.2.4) and PCs (98 and 2000), but it one more machine to attend to, more space, more noise, etc. http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Has anybody got it running (well) on X backing up mutliple clients and multiple OSes?
