Yes a whole heap of new features and updates are now avalible for EasyCloud Backup those already running the software will get a prompt to auto-update the software to the latest version. Customers servers who we manage will update the software for you automatically.
Backup of in-use files
The new software will back up files even when they’re in use, and won’t ever lock files while they’re being backed up. So you can now be confident that your Outlook database and Office documents are being backed up – even if they’ve got Outlook or the document open.
Partial upload support for Outlook files and more
The new software will only upload changed portions of Outlook PST files and selected other file types, making it easier to keep large, frequently changing files safely backed up. We’re constantly reviewing the types of files that are available for partial upload, but currently we support ZIP, DMG, PST and DAT files. Let us know if you have other common file formats that would benefit!
You can now choose times when you don’t want Livedrive to be backing up files, so that slower or older computers can disable backup when the PC is busy. To modify the schedule, your customers can simply right click on the Livedrive icon near their clock and select Manage Backups, and then click on Backup Settings.
Rather than watching your files all of the time, the new system uses an hourly scan to find out what’s changed and backup the changes. This reduces load on computer / server and means that they have a more useful list of old-versions of frequently changing files. We needed to implement scan-based backup to support the backing up of in-use files, but we think it makes backup easier to use and easier to understand.
Improved startup time and performance
Both the Windows and Mac software now start even faster, and create less load on your PC when its running.
