EMC today released Dantz with enhanced support for Mac OS X 10.4. The free update offers new functionality that boosts information security. Retrospect 6.1 incorporates backup and restoration of access control lists (ACLs), used to control which users can access or modify files stored on a Mac OS X Tiger server. Support has also been added for Mac OS X Tiger's extended attributes that will be used by future Macintosh applications. Retrospect protects all networked desktops and notebooks with automated backups, instead of relying on individuals to manually copy their files to a network server. Retrospect requires Mac OS X 10.4 (pricing was unavailable).
