I agree.  Note that you can also do this using only Restrospect (i.e.
without Retrospect Remote) by mounting the remote disks on the machine
running the backup.  Howerver, opened files (i.e. System, fonts, etc.)
will not be backed up as they are locked out.  Will work quite well for a
user disk though, and Retrospect even remembers passwords needed to mount
volumes and will mount them automatically.
