Faster Backup Speeds to External Devices NEW
Experience faster backup speeds when backing up to an external device like NAS or USB. Updated to use multi-threaded I/O processes to allow for overlapping of file reading and writing operations.
More Reliable Restores with Greater Ease-of-Use NEW
Restore data to Network locations with greater reliability. Time-based restore tab now properly filters the file set for the selected date and time, allowing for more accurate data restores.
Auto Shut-down After a Backup is Complete NEW
Enables quick and bandwidth-savvy granular restores from file- and image-level backups for offline SQL databases and Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox stores and Outlook files, eliminating the need for brick-level backup agents.
Verify the integrity of your data backups with new Advanced Verification. This verification algorithm offers enhanced byte-to-byte comparisons of the backup data with the source data. Customers now have the option for normal (default) verification, advanced verification or no verification.
Single Pass Image Recovery NEW
NovaBACKUP 18.7 now recovers image backups from full and incremental files in a single pass. The recovery procedure scans the last full image backup, then goes through each subsequent incremental backup to discover and acquire any later revisions of the target file(s).
Custom Subject Lines for Email Notifications NEW
Subject lines for NovaBACKUP alerts can now be customized for better organization and quick status checks. With dynamic variables, you can add the job name, status, user name, computer name, date and time that your backup job completed directly in the subject line.
Dozens of Under the Hood Enhancements and Fixes
