Compared to the previous version (v4.1), Backup4all 4.2 introduces new features and many enhancements and fixes, such as:

  • New: Added Unicode filename support (files with non-standard characters can be easily backed up now)
  • New: Backup4all is now compatible with 64-bit operating systems too
  • New: Environment Variables can be used when defining new filters (e.g. %temp%, %SystemRoot%)
  • New: File versions can be compared now
  • New: Added "Select columns" option in the right-click menu of the versions section (Explore View)
  • New: Added option to select new filetype for log files (.txt is accepted now too, given that .log files cannot be opened on Blackberry devices)

  • New: Added "Run With" and "Job Type" in schedule lists
  • New: Added a new button for "Ignore all" during restore

  • New: Added notification if the CTM gets corrupted (ask user to reinstall application)
  • Update: If the notification email has an attachment larger than the sending limit, only the email is sent (without attachment)
  • Update: Sources can be modified now even after selecting a Predefined Backup job (this way a backup job can be used as a "template" for future backup jobs)
  • Fix: Various fixes for mirror backups (with zip) to removable drives and FTP
  • Fix: In particular cases the .bkc got corrupted

This upgrade is free for registered users of Backup4all 4.1 and 4.0
