Iomega Integrates EMC Retrospect and MozyHome Backup Solutions

Today, Iomega announced that it’s rolling out a new integrated local and online backup solution that will allow user to double up on storing and protecting vital data. The company’s new external hard drives, which will be available this month, are compatible with a new downloadable software bundle that contains EMC Retrospect Express backup software and Mozy’s online backup service (2GB free; unlimited storage for $4.95). There are three versions of the Retrospect/Mozy combo: Retrospect Express HD 2.5 for Windows is the basic model. It lets users send information to an external drive, to the cloud, or both. Retrospect Express 7.6 for Windows is designed for more savvy users who want the option to backup to an external drive, CDs, DVDs, and Iomega’s REV Backup Drive. It includes a launch button for both MozyHome and MozyPro. If your notebook doesn’t run Windows, you aren’t left out of the party. Retrospect Express for Macintosh 6.1 includes many of the same features as Retrospect Express 7.6 for Windows, but lacks the integration with MozyHome (the software can be downloaded from Iomega’s site). Iomega is also planning a Linux version that will be released at an unspecified date. Note: If you’re a current Iomega drive owner who took advantage of the Retrospect software offered with the unit you purchased, you’ll be prompted to upgrade to Mozy.

    But the client could easily be updated (and the terms of service, too) to capture passwords, without informing anybody.
