EMC Dantz has announced that their
Retrospect 6 backup software for the Macintosh must not be used on Apple’s Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger” until a patch is readied. The developer expects to release the software update “during the first week of May 2005.” What’s more, EMC Dantz promises a future release that will add support for new features of Mac OS X v10.4 and Mac OS X Server v10.4, including extended metadata and Access Control Lists (ACLs).
a technical note posted to the company’s KnowledgeBase, problems associated with Retrospect 6 include an inability to mount Retrospect CDs and DVDs in the Finder, an inability to erase volumes and subvolumes, disabling of the Retrospect Client, crashing, and an inability to automatically launch after a restart. Additionally, EMC Dantz recommends that users of Retrospect 5 avoid using the software on Tiger.
