Backup4all 8.7 was released, an important update that adds a new backup destination (Backblaze), option to send email notifications via Gmail, new backup plugins and several other updates and fixes. Update is highly recommended. What’s new in Backup4all 8.7:
Send email notifications via Gmail (PRO). Backup4all Professional could be configured to send emails using a custom SMTP server after a backup finished with success, error and warning notifications. Starting with version 8.7 it is possible to configure emails to be sent via Gmail, by connecting your account (so no need to enter SMTP details anymore). Blackblaze added as a new backup destination. Backup4all Professional can use over 37 Amazon S3 Compatible cloud services (i.e. Cisco, Hitachi, Tiscali, Verizon) as a backup destination. The latest destination added is Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage, which is widely used for backups (over an Exabyte stored & 50+ billion files recovered).
Interface available in Finnish. We’ve added Finnish as a new language interface in Backup4all 8.7. This brings the total of languages Backup4all is available in to 27 different ones. More details on the languages added is on the Supported Languages page.
4 more backup plugins added. We’ve added 4 more backup plugins that you can load in Backup4all to easily backup these apps:
- Backup plugin for Spotify
