What's new in version 6.4 (December 21, 2022)
In the new version, we created the Updater utility, added the ability to limit storage of backups by time, by total size, displayed information about the size of free space on the storage disks, added a context menu item for quickly enabling/disabling a scheduler, and fixed errors and defects.
TOP 3 new features of version 6.4
1. Created the Updater program for automatic updating of the Exiland Backup
Updater allows you to semi-automatically download and update the program on your PC.
After the update, you just have to click on the "Run the program" button
Now you can use this utility to automatically update the program to version 6.4
If there is no Internet on the PC where Exiland Backup is installed, then you can update the program by following the "Update" instruction from Your Account, as before. All instructions in the Your Account remain as a fallback for updating.
2. Added the ability to limit the storage of backups by time and the total size of backups
In Exiland Backup 6.4, it became possible to limit the storage of backups not only by the number of backups, but also by time, as well as by their total size. For example, you need to keep backups for the last 3 months, and the rest (outdated backups) will be automatically deleted.
The ability to limit full backups by the total size allows you to control the disk space that is allocated for storing backups. For example, you can specify a maximum of 10 GB that backups can take up on disk. Old backups beyond the specified size will be automatically deleted.
New features allow more flexible backup storage planning. These settings can be combined with each other.
3. Added "Enable" and "Disable" context menu items to the backup job list for quick scheduler management
This menu item enables or disables the schedule. This can be useful if you need to temporarily suspend the automatic start of a backup job.
You can view the full list of changes in the new version on the version history page:
- Exiland Backup Professional https://exiland-backup.com/backup-history-prof.html
- Exiland Backup Standard https://exiland-backup.com/backup-history-std.html
We regularly refine the program, fix detected errors and defects, add new features, and optimize existing algorithms. For stable operation of the program, we recommend that you use the latest version of the program, even if you have not found anything new for yourself in the new version.
