In addition to supporting local destination media such as USB hard drives, network shares and RDX, BackupAssist also provides a way to back up important files and folders to a public cloud provider such as Amazon or Microsoft.

Designed to be an additional layer of protection to your local backup routine, the Cloud Backup Add-on is ideal for disaster recovery scenarios and popular with Hyper-V users who want an off-site location for Guest VM's.

In the second instalment of a new series where we focus on specific features, Neil walks you through setting up a job using the Cloud Backup Add-on, showing both the steps required in BackupAssist and what's needed in Azure.

Over to you Neil!

It's also the backup type of choice for the vast majority of our customers. It's a popular option because it's a safe one. It guarantees your entire system is backed up in one hit with nothing left behind, but also still provides you with the ability to restore granular data should you wish, such as files, folders or mailbox items. In the first of a new series of videos designed to help new users get started, and existing ones brush up their knowledge, Neil gets behind the camera to walk you through the process of creating a job, explaining both the benefits and limitations as he goes. Over to you Neil!

Whether it's bank details, employment contracts, IP addresses or altogether more sensitive information, the introduction of the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May next year will force companies to take the responsibility of managing this data seriously.

Straight out of the box, when you perform searches of your archived email as a MailStore user, it looks for your keywords in the header, body and subject of your messages. What you may not know, however, is that it also has the ability to search within some attachment types too if you enable the feature. I've found this to be incredibly helpful when looking back over conversations with customers, helping me find invoice or project references for example, and I'm sure you'll find it useful in your working day too. Attachment searching is actually enabled by default, but it's limited to only .txt and .HTML file extensions, so you're not using its full potential. In this short post, I'll show you how to enable the feature and get MailStore to re-index your historic email so it works for that too.

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. Don't feel like reading? Check out my 'Early Heads Up' video from last week which also tells you everything you need to know about v10.
