How do I stop Retrospec from exiting when logging off on a remote connection

Hi All,

I am running Dantz Retrospect on one of my clients servers. Every so often when there is a problem, i have to log on remotely, fix it and let the backup run. The problem is, when I log off the server, Retrospect exits as well meaning I either have to sit and wait for it to finish or go on site to do it. Is there a way stop retrospect from exiting so I can let it run when I log off the server???
I have tried changing the Startup preference to 'Stay in Retrospect' but that will sometimes not allow me to get into retrospect all together when logging in remotely.

Any help here would be appreciated since, I'm sure everyone agrees, not having the backups work properly is a hair raising experience.

Thank you.

Instead of logging of, you can " Disconnect " and reconnect next day to ensure everything went fine !

I had actually tried that a while ago for other things and it never seemed to work but thought I'd try it again and it worked fine!
