Backup Monitor and Reminder Service Now Available

We have noticed quite a few cases where, backup stopped working for technical reasons, but users were unaware of it, because they have become accustom to how quiet Bun is when running, and don't realize that backup is no longer happening.

To resolve this, we recently rolled out a new backup monitor and reminder service that runs on the Backup Nexus network itself (instead of on your computer, where it may stop working without anyone noticing). The reminder service regularly checks that you are connecting Bun to the Internet. If your Bun installation stops working for any reason, whether it is because your new firewall blocking connection or you forgot to turn on your computer, you will receive a reminder email to check on your backup status.
