- Restore history is now logged and can be accessed via the backup history screen.
- Users can now cancel a restore that is currently in progress.
- Backup time remaining has been improved for greater accuracy.
- Backup history upload column now includes updated file sizes.
- When adding users to your organization they now get an email to create their password.
- Backup history page loads have increased in speed.
- Stopping a backup is now quicker.
- Fixed an issue where performing a large quantity restore, in some cases, could freeze the browser. Although the restore continued successfully some users couldn’t tell that it had successfully restored.
- Fixed an issue where the restore couldn’t be done when providing a destination with special characters.
- Fixed a bug where stopping a backup then trying to immediately start it again didn’t work for some users.
- In some rare cases, backups appeared to have a status of “in progress” but were actually completed. Those backups no longer hang in the “in progress” status but complete when the backup is down.
- Various bug fixes and improvements.
It wasn’t too long ago that team Canada was bringing home the gold from the Sochi Winter Olympics. During that time our team was busy working on oneBackup SMB V1.2. While we didn’t touch too much of the backup side of the service we did add a help centre.
As more and more businesses are using oneBackup SMB it made a lot of sense for us to improve the limited help article functionality that we had.
Don’t worry, you can still open a support ticket and those on the Pro plan can still call in and talk to a human. We just figured that for the DIYers this would help.
Last month we were happy to see many businesses take advantage of our 80% off oneBackup SMB promo. Over the next several months we will be tinkering with promotions to see what works best to help businesses start backing up their important information.
Ever walk past a co-worker’s desk and see him working on something he was doing the day before? Then the next time you pass by and he’s still at it. You can’t seem to understand what’s taking him so long. After all the project seems pretty straight forward.
For the last little while that was me. Head down, trying to look busy as my computer did it’s best to churn out frame after frame of what the passer by would recognize as nonsense. Sometimes they would stop by and look at the story boards I made or tell me they were looking forward to video I was making.
Well I am glad to show all my curious co-workers and everyone else that oneBackup SMB is made for teams. Enjoy!
If you are interested in what went into making this video let me know in the comments below and I can share some insights into the development process in a future post.
Last month we were happy to see many businesses take advantage of our 90% off oneBackup SMB promo. We broke our record for website traffic! Over the next several months we will be tinkering with promotions to see what works best to help businesses start backing up their important information. While we can’t reveal the specifics we can let you know that early adopters will get the best deals. The longer businesses wait to sign up for oneBackup SMB the smaller the discount will be.
Before the year is out we will be releasing oneBackup SMB V1.1. Thanks for all the feedback we’ve received so far. If there is anything else that you would like to see in future versions on oneBackup SMB please let us know. If you have a moment to take a shot survey it helps us evaluate the user experience.
Our team at NIRIX has been working hard to get oneBackup SMB ready for the wild. Those of you that have been trying out the preview have been very helpful in finding bugs, suggesting improvements and load testing our new backup service. Thanks so much.
As of November 19, 2013 we are launching the production version of oneBackup SMB after 4 months of previewing the service to a handful of Western Canada’s small businesses. Here is a summary of some of the changes we’ve made:
- We’ve upgrade the desktop client.
- No more waiting 5 minutes for your backup to start when manually running a backup. Now backups start immediately when initiated.
- Added a small knowledgebase in the help section.
- Deleting backups is now an option.
- Users now have access to an audit log.
- Signing out of oneBackup SMB desktop client is now easier.
- The updating of the desktop client is much simplier and doesn’t include the manual steps that were needed in the preview version.
- Backups schedules can now be added monthly and daily on top of weekly.
- Fixed a bug where some users were unable to backup files that were in use.
- Fixed an issue where some users were unable to use some of the functionality with an anti virus installed.
- Implemented tighter security into oneBackup SMB.
