Dantz Development Corporation Retrospect 3.0A Updater is a utility that updates a copy of Retrospect 3.0 or 3.0i, regardless of its language, to version 3.0A (or 3.0Ai).
The Updater will cause Retrospect to scan all mounted volumes for eligible copies of Retrospect. For faster updating, unmount server volumes.
