BackupAssist v10 Featuring Direct to Cloud Backup for Amazon and Azure

BackupAssist version 10

We’re thrilled to announce that there’s a new version of BackupAssist available today, and with it, new features for backing up your data to the wonderfully reliable and ultra-secure data centres of cloud hosting juggernauts, Amazon and Microsoft (with more to follow).

While you’ll find enhancements to the base product too, the headliner for version 10 is undoubtedly the all-new backup engine that’s behind the new Cloud Backup features.

Brimming with potential, this new technology offers a simple, secure and efficient way to automate getting your important data off-site.

Support queries shared: The pitfalls of bare metal backups that include multiple disks

I came across an issue on a support call the other day I thought worth sharing as it’s bound to be something a few of you will see too.

The customer I was talking to was using the Windows imaging engine in BackupAssist to back up both┬átheir┬ásystem drive ‘C:’ and a large data drive ‘D:’ (used for every day document storage etc.).

This was working just as expected and backups were updating quickly to a local USB hard drive when the inevitable happened – they had a local hard drive failure and of course wanted to perform a bare metal recovery from the last good image backup.
