Retrospect Solo – Best for added ransomware protection
- Easy to use (once learned)
- Copious feature set
- Good performance
- New anti-ransomware backup protection
- Somewhat steep learning curve
The latest version (18.5) of this stalwart Windows backup program is every bit as feature-packed as we’d expect. It even adds an interesting pre-backup file scanning to root out anomalies before overwriting your previous backup—a nod to the emergence of ransomware as a concern. It’s got a bit of a learning curve, but once familiar, Retrospect Solo delivers the goods.
