BackupAssist Backup Software version 3.0.13 released

Melbourne, Australia - April 26, 2005 - Software development company Cortex IT has released the latest version of its popular BackupAssist backup software - providing greater functionality than ever before.

Version 3.0.13 contains improved error detection for SQL Server backups, better error reporting, automatic freeing of disk space, alerts for when drives are not mapped in BackupAssist, and automatic mapping.

The latest release improves support for USB hard drive backups. BackupAssist can now free up a minimum amount of free space on your hard drive before each backup and keep as many backups on the hard drive as will fit. Also included are improved network drive mapping for SAMBA shares and allowance of blank SQL Server passwords.

Lead developer Linus Chang is proud of his team's efforts. "Our latest release of BackupAssist has literally taken hours of research and development time, and is easily the most powerful, feature-packed version yet," said Chang. "We're always listening to what our customers tell us they want, and incorporating features into our software accordingly. Hence, our product is continuously evolving to meet the needs of the market."

BackupAssist provides a simple and affordable server backup solution for small and medium businesses, schools, not-for-profit organizations and charities. "Many smaller organizations have had to rely on expensive enterprise backup software, even if the prices are way beyond what they can afford to pay," explained Chang. "We offer backup software that does the job that smaller organizations require, but our prices are in the low hundreds of dollars rather than in the thousands."
