BackupAssist Backup Software Version 3.3 Provides More Powerful Features for DVD, Open File Backups

Melbourne, Australia - July 29, 2005 - Software development company Cortex IT has released the latest version of its popular BackupAssist Backup Software - providing CD and DVD burning and full open file support for Windows 2000.

"Here at BackupAssist, we've been listening to feedback from our customers," said Chang. "For instance, we've introduced native burning to CD and DVD due to popular demand. Small businesses can use BackupAssist, which provides the essential features for comprehensive server data protection, for fast and simple backups to CD or DVD, if they do not require tape or hard drive backup."

"Meanwhile, our advanced Open File add-on provides powerful and comprehensive open file support. This will prove especially useful for customers using the Windows 2000 operating system, which lacks the Volume Shadow Copy feature enjoyed by Windows 2003 customers."

Version 3.3 also contains numerous other enchancements, including an improved user interface to make backups even simpler for users, and more powerful logging facilities.

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 provides the robust data protection that smaller organizations require, but our prices are in the low hundreds of dollars rather than in the thousands."
