New EMC Dantz Retrospect 7 Makes Data Protection Easier For Home And Home Office Users

<p>Wizards guide users through the entire backup and recovery process</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia – 1 February, 2005 - EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information storage and management, today announced the release of EMC Dantz Retrospect 7 for Windows backup and recovery software, including updated editions (Retrospect 7 Professional and Disk-to-Disk) designed for the home and home office. Both editions feature new wizards, instant backup and enhanced encryption to make home and home office computer protection easier, faster, and more secure.</p>
<p>“The new wizards are great,” said Retrospect user Jim Oker in Seattle, Washington. “The Backup Wizard helped me quickly schedule backups for the three computers on my home network. I set up Retrospect to keep only the last 20 backups on an external hard drive. Older backups are automatically groomed out, so the external hard drive never becomes full. The Restore Wizard is a lifesaver. Not only am I able to recover lost files with a couple of mouse clicks, but if something serious happens in the future, EMC Dantz Retrospect will enable me to restore my entire computer, saving hours reinstalling software and configuring settings.”</p>
<p>Retrospect has won numerous awards and industry acclaim for its ease of use and patented ability to provide fast backup and smart restores with unparalleled accuracy. Retrospect 7 for Windows Professional edition protects a single Windows desktop or notebook, or a small network of desktops and notebooks running Windows, Mac OS or Linux in the home or home office. Users can back up to internal or external disk drives, tape or CD/DVDs. Retrospect 7 for Windows Disk-to-Disk edition protects a single Windows server backing up to internal or external hard drives or CD/DVDS. For both editions, backups can be performed on demand or on an automated schedule to protect documents, pictures, movies, music, the operating system, applications and settings.</p>
<p>Highlights of New Release</p>
<p>Retrospect 7 for Windows Professional and Disk-to-Disk editions include the following new features:</p>
<p>· Enhanced wizards that further streamline setup, backup, restore and media duplication</p>
<p>· New hot key or task bar feature to perform backups instantly</p>
<p>· Automated data grooming that ensures backups to internal or external hard drives do not exceed capacity</p>
<p>· New filters for pictures, movies, music and documents save time and disk space</p>
<p>· Support for 8 gigabyte double-layer DVDs</p>
<p>· 128-bit AES data encryption on backup media provides industry’s highest standard</p>
<p>· Protection for the latest releases of Red Hat and SUSE Linux, and Mac OS X.</p>
<p>“When it comes to backing up a small network of desktops and notebooks, we recommend EMC Dantz Retrospect Professional edition,” said Shawn Scott of Advanced Computer Solutions. “Year after year, Retrospect wins the most coveted awards for consumer backup software with its combination of rich features and reliability. The new wizards make it easier than ever to set up and use, which our customers will appreciate.”</p>
