Backup4all 9.1 released, with updates for plugins and new Wasabi servers

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. You can download the new version here: Download Backup4all.

What’s new in Backup4all 9.1

Plugin warning notices. We have added an option to display additional information for some backup plugins. Usually these are some warning/limitation notes based on the particularity of that plugin. For instance, Microsoft does not recommend backing up OST files, however the Microsoft Outlook plugin we created does back them up. The difference is that restoring the OST files has some special requirements, which are now shown as a warning.

Wasabi cloud destination. Wasabi is an enterprise class, tier-free, instantly available cloud storage provider and allows you to store an infinite amount of data affordably. Version 9.1 allows you to select which Wasabi server you want to back-up to, as there are 5 different locations available: Wasabi US East 1 (North Virginia), Wasabi US East 2 (North Virginia), Wasabi US West 1 (Oregon), Wasabi US Central 1 (Texas) and Wasabi EU Central 1 (Amsterdam).

Polycloud backup destination. Polycloud offers reliable offsite backup for your data with no hidden fees when you need to access it. We’ve added Polycloud as a cloud backup destination in an earlier build, but the integration is now fully finalized in version 9.1 so you can use it as a cloud destination for your backups.
