COMODO BackUp 4.0.6 Released!


We are happy to announce that COMODO Backup 4.0.6 was released to public.
The new website is available here:

What’s new: (compared to 3.0)

  • Automatic scan for certain file types (pictures, documents, music, video) and preview of these file types with the new eye-catchy CBWizard
  • 5GB free Online Storage
  • Default backup type is incremental
  • Cbu file properties in explorer to show extended backup information
  • Schedule to run every X minutes
  • Success & error email notifications for backup contain log file as attachment (if a log file was specified).
  • COS setup is optional to install with CB
  • All logs are located in %TEMP%\ComodoLogsFolder (user programs) and \Windows\Temp\ComodoLogsFolder (services) for debugging easier any issues. They should be posted with each bug report.

What’s improved: (compared to 3.0)

  • More detailed logging including size of the backup compressed / uncompressed when finished
  • All advanced backup/restore settings were grouped in backup/restore step 3
  • Descriptive text for error codes encountered during backup / restore
  • All strings are translated in all languages except logging strings and some strings in setup. You can help us improve existing translations here.
  • Comodo Backup runs by default as invoker. This avoids UAC prompt for each program start.
  • Better speed when uploading/downloading via CB Online Storage TAB
  • Better speed for file&directories cbu backup / restore
  • Improved incremental cbu backup to Online Storage
  • Corrupted .cbu files&directories backups can now be restored. If a portion of a backup is corrupted, CB restores as many files as possible

  • Issues with WinPE
  • Issues with 120DPI and other minor issues

  • Issues with incremental simple copy
  • Memory leak in COSService.exe when backing up large files
  • CBU launches very slow
  • Setup update & repair issues
  • Support for netbook resolution
  • Backup which failed for some partitions with unrecognized or without volumes
  • Some CBU.exe crashes
  • Issues with backup to email and email notification
  • Disk priority issue (using other priority than default caused backup speed to be very slow)
  • Diagnostic issues when running under limited account or with UAC on
  • Some restore options which were not added to the .cbs script
  • Check disk running sometimes when “raw read” option was used
  • Progress for backup to ZIP
  • Installation which stall in some cases
  • Mirror(clone) backups which sometimes corrupted the operating system

Congratulations! :-TU

Well done and thank you.

Great work guys!

Gonna give it a whirl, seems like you have made so much improvements since v3! Just need to free up some space now from all the clutter that I have. >:-D

Smashing news, but does it include the function to back up drives, or at least folders of other computers in a network ?

That’s something I’ve been missing in 3.0. This way, I’d just have to install the software on an old machine, that can handle the backup jobs for the other 3 pcs in my network, instead of having to run the software on all of them :wink:

EDIT: Oh gosh, sorry about the question ! I just found out, how. :smiley:
