COMODO BackUp 3.0 BETA3 released

We are happy to announce that COMODO BackUp 3.0 BETA3 is available for download.

What’s fixed:

  • backup/restore security attributes for files and directories (NTFS and file systems that support security attributes)
  • no more skipped items when restoring at windows restart.
  • progress when performing .cbu file format backup on COS
  • better speed when browsing mounted backups
  • issues with macros
  • selective restore for backups performed with 2.2 version
  • CBU crash when trying to mount a large backup
  • “An error occurred” when trying to mount a password-protected backup
  • online Help (click help)
  • other small GUI issues

Known Issues:

  1. Mounting a backup performed with 2.2 version or earlier might take some time depending on the backup size.
  2. Registry and System backups performed with 2.2 and previous versions for files that are locked might be corrupted. To avoid crashing the operating system these backups should not be restored after restart, especially if these file are used by the operating system.
  3. Synchronize issues
  4. Simple Copy incremental/differential does not copy only changed files
  5. GUI issues when editing scheduled backups
