EMC to drop Retrospect 8.0?

According to The Register, EMC are not going to complete the much awaited Retrospect 8.0 backup software. Many people have pointed out that The Register is a highly reliable source of information, of course 🙂

Sadly whilst there are a few alternatives such as BRU, they don’t seem to be as easy to use as Retrospect, despite the many annoyances of Retro 7 (my copy always seems to backup up files I’ve told it to exclude).
