Version 7.4.3 with Stability Improvements, Updated GUI and FTP/SFTP Plug-ins

August 14, 2013

Dear friends, we are happy to announce the release of version 7.4.3!

New Component Launching Scheme

By design, our software allows backing up local computer data (in “standalone” editions) and network data (in client-server editions), and this largely defines how internal components interact with each other. In simple words, there always must be a “Coordinator” that ties all the parts into a coherent backup system.

In network backup schemes, failure of a remote component calls sophisticated recovery schemes. Earlier, the same logic applied to “standalone” editions, which resulted in performance issues for relatively minor external events, such as connecting the computer to a different network (which is a rare situation for network servers, but common for a laptop with WiFi).

In the new version 7.4.3, we have changed the logic for standalone versions: the update is recommended for all users of Home Standard, Professional and Small Server editions.
