[Changelog] Backup4all 8

Post by Claudiu (Softland) »

Below is the changelog for the public builds of Backup4all 8.0 - Backup4all 8.9. This version was first released in April 2019 and development ended in May 2021. It is SUPPORTED on the following operating systems: Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP SP3, Server 2019/2016/2012/2008/2003 (32/64-bits).

You can download the latest version of Backup4all from: https://download.backup4all.com/downloa ... p-full.exe

NOTE: If you have an older version and want to upgrade please note that version 8 installs separately from the previous versions (doesn't overwrite those). It will also offer a way to import backup jobs from other detected versions. Upgrading from previous older versions (i.e. 7.x, 6.x) is not free, upgrade discounts apply.

As of October 2022 we have disabled hubiC as a cloud destination because the service was discontinued by its parent company.
