For your convenience, we optimized the application’s performance and resolved issues of the previous version.
In particular, we improved the Handy Backup Disaster Recovery tool, since now you can find an instruction on how to create a WinPE bootable disk by just clicking an icon on your application’s toolbar.
We also optimized the VMWare backup process by fixing execution log errors when using this plugin. Previously, there were issues with machine names, which were displayed in wrong encoding.
As for FTP backup, we improved the FTP/SFTP/FTPS encryption libraries. Basically, we fixed the FTP plugins, however, the library update indirectly affected all modules that these libraries used (including server’s and client’s activities and interactions). We also fixed data transfer errors between FTP plugin and FTP server. In previous versions of the application some clients had an issue connecting to the SFTP plugin due to the client-server configuration (because corresponding FTP servers did not support older versions of encryption libraries).
And finally, we improved the mechanism of re-registration of the application. Now after the re-registration process, application restart is not required.
