Backup4all v9 is now available. This is a new major version with important features and updates thus we highly recommend the upgrade. It includes the option to add backup sources from cloud locations (Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Azure, BOX, Hidrive, Hubic and Amazon S3 Compatible destinations), FTP/SFTP, as well as the possibility to have different types of sources in the same backup (for example plugin data, sources from the cloud, from local drives) plus other new features and updates.
You can download the new version here: Download Backup4all.
Here are some of the new features that were added in this new version:
Add backup sources from cloud destinations. Previous versions of Backup4all include the option to save your backup in the cloud with support for over 49 popular cloud destinations. Until now you could only use cloud storage as a backup destination. Starting with version 9 you can use files and folders from cloud location as backup sources. As an example, you’ll be able to back-up files from Dropbox on a different cloud storage service (i.e. Google Drive). You can also add sources from FTP/SFTP servers. This is a great option especially for backup redundancy.
Predefined network connection sources. Backup4all 9 adds support for creating predefined network connections. You can define these as you would define other online connections, and then use them when adding backup sources. This is a great option for backing up multiple computers in the same network that have shared network paths.
Different source types in one backup job. Backup4all now has support for adding different types of backup sources in the same backup job. For instance you’ll be able to add in the same backup job sources from your local HDD, but also from cloud locations or sources from predefined plugins. Older versions of Backup4all had support for adding only one type of source in a backup job, but this changes starting with Backup4all 9.
