Pros: I have the professional version and it is SO incredible. Works 100% of the time to restore a variety of things. Once a laptop got a virus, I hired a company to get rid of virus, but the virus destroyed many of the base system files. I did a rollback restore and it worked perfectly. I have had hard drive crashes, yet had all the data backed up perfectly. Most recently, a desktop would not shut down so I hit the power button (never a good thing), screen booted up 100% haywire and many programs did not function. I just did a registry and system file restore, and was back up 100% in 1/2 hour - with ZERO loss in any data. I had tried other programs in the past - but NONE of them work! They do very, very poorly on restore. Only Retrospect has NEVER failed me!!!

Cons: A person needs to learn how it works (terminology), but the tech support people are VERY helpful! Other than that (100 char min for this field) cannot think of another con ...

Pros: The software was very easy to deploy. The cost was lower than most big brands providing backup solution. The system was highly reliable, i cannot remember we ever had the application crashing.

Client app does not consume a lot of processing and memory which prevents client computers from experiencing degraded performance.

The dashboards are clear & helpful

Filtering certain file extensions feature is very powerful & beneficial in terms of disk utilization.

Cons: The software performs best for personal & small business usage. It is not an enterprise level solution.

Overall: Easy grouping of client machines

Filtering out certain file extensions for space utilization

simple reporting

Effective alerting

Retrospect is great backup software for a fraction of the price of their competitors

Pros: Easy to configure. Very intuitive interface and terminology makes setting up scripts a breeze. The built-in assistants make it even easier. Built-in smart filters makes it easy to see what clients have backed up and what clients have not backed up.

Cons: Catalog management can be cumbersome if not organized well. Capturing clients across multiple subnets can be burdensome.
