The first official version of Backup4all was released exactly 20 years ago, in 2002. Development for it started 3 years prior to that, in 1999. Initially it was just a tool developed to be used internally, but after (a lot of) positive feedback from anyone that interacted with it, we decided to take it public and released version 1.0 of Backup4all exactly on the 20th of December in 2002.
Backup4all Monitor 1.2 was released, the most important update being the option to permanently activate a license. This update also includes several other fixes so update is recommended. If you don't use Backup4all Monitor yet, we highly recommend trying it to monitor your backups remotely.
Backup4all v9.5 is now available. This is an important update, as it adds support for using multiple parallel threads. You can either set the number of threads manually or leave it on automatic. This improves the speed of backups and other actions for online backups thus we highly recommend the upgrade.
Backup4all v9.3 is now available. This version was tested and is fully compatible with Microsoft's new operating system, Windows 11. It also includes several other important updates thus we highly recommend the upgrade.
Backup4all v9.2 is now available. This version comes with important features and updates thus we highly recommend the upgrade. It includes an automated file copy method switch to optimize backup speed for large files, a new backup job import option, language updates, several specific fixes and more.
Backup4all v9.1 is now available. This version comes with important features and updates thus we highly recommend the upgrade. It includes new servers for the Wasabi cloud destination, updates for plugins, improved backup job imports, language updates and more.
