Release notes for Cloud Backup for Windows 8.x

On this page


Implemented additional verification of the data packages before uploading

Optimized and improved the local disk usage


An issue introduced in 8.1.0 release where a file recently added to the backup set might be removed if the backup was canceled interrupted, and all of the following were true:
- the file was a .qbw, .db, .lrcat, or .pst larger than 5 GB (per the default settings); and
- the file (except for .pst) was locked by the system at the start of the backup, and was later no longer locked when the backup was canceled or interrupted.


Before performing a backup, the app cleans up the residual files from the previous backup that are stored in the temp folder

The app now excludes the system cache files, temporary files, and needless system binary files from backup

Backup with direct GCP upload of the files locked by the system failed with the error (Chunk sending failed)

A long-running backup with direct GCP uploading failed with the error (An error occurred while initializing resumable request)

Canceled backup was marked as failed


Support of direct data protection in the Google Cloud object storage

If the backup engine cannot get the current state of a locked file (because of a VSS issue) within a specified time, it reports the file in the app logs and skips it so the current and further backups could continue

If a backup set included files with unsupported characters in their paths, the backup failed, and user could not edit the backup set (error Illegal characters: [] in path. Parameter name: path). Now such files are skipped during backup.

On the first try, the app failed to upload a delta (changed data blocks) for the file version that was recently deleted from the cloud
