COMODO Backup 2.0.99405.5 RC2 has been released! One more step to public release :).
windows 2000 not supported anymore;
windows 7 compatibility (experimental);
help file included(in case you were wondering why the setup size increased…);
restoring a split backup for files & directories that is saved in the same location as the files & directories to be restored can leave the restore destination in an inconsistent state. (Ex: If you backup folder “C:\Users” to “C:\Users\MyUser\Desktop\backup.cbu”, with split enabled, then you try to restore it with clean restore an error will occur);
fixed error code 4 in file & directories backup which occurred rarely in files & directories;
fixed issue with mail accounts which rarely failed with error code 92;
fixed issue with ‘system’ (last option) backup/restore on some XP4 machines;
fixed shell extension problem for x64 operating systems;

Does this mean there won’t be a sync mode in v2 at all?
Just installed it for the 1st time after I found out yesterday there was a new version. Last visit was 2 months ago.
GUI looks good… all options look like any other backup software. Was looking for the same sync mode as v1 but with a delete that propagate. Maybe a little update to v1 would be welcome? You could well live with 2 different versions.
When will the official bootable rescue CD be available? PC’s seriously infected by Malware now days can’t even be restored while the computer is running, hence bootable CD’s whether it would be backup or an antimalware disk is the only option to disinfect, but for backup, reverse the damage which is far more efficient.
Emanuel, this is one happy user. We have to make sure he stays like this :). Just kidding… but the fact is that we’ll have all this in next version. We might be forced to get back to BETA state because of it… but if you wish for it we cannot ignore it.
