Beta 5 Available

Beta 5 release of Backup Nexus (or as we affectionately calls it, bun) is now available. This is a substantial release, with a host of new enhancements:
  • Faster startup
  • Handle multi-thousand files with ease (up to tens of thousands)
  • Better notifications when backup or restore is happening
  • More compact encoding, now reduces storage and download size by 30% - 50%
  • Significantly reduced background memory usage when not doing any processing
  • General performance increase, thanks to a better execution engine
  • Many other miscellaneous small fixes and touches too
Given the amount of new features and improvements, this is one of the most exciting releases yet. As usual, the installer on the site has been updated. You can download it here.
