Release Notes for BackupAssist 5 Beta – For Windows Server 2008

NEW in beta: File Replication

How often have you wanted to backup files by just replicating them to another location? Perhaps youíve manually scripted robocopy or xxcopy before, but missed VSS support and automation. Youíll love this new feature thatís coming in BackupAssist v5.

Our new file replication engine gives you the simplicity of backing up files by coping them, a range of backup history options, and the power of our Single Instance Store which means that only one unique copy of each file is stored, which allows you to store hundreds of days of backup history at little cost.

For more information, please see our File Replication Engine Fact Sheet.

PASSED in previous beta: Drive Imaging

The drive imaging features in BackupAssist (for Vista and Server 2008) have successfully passed beta stage, and have been integrated into BackupAssist v4.2. For more information on these features, please visit our Windows Imaging Fact Sheet.
