FBackup comes with promise of faster backup performance, improved statistics view


Softland has released FBackup 5.1 and Backup4all 5.1, minor new versions of its free and paid-for Windows backup products.

Both programs, which offer file-based backup and extended functionality via plug-ins, come with the promise of improved backup performance and more detailed statistics view, along with other minor improvements and bug fixes.

Improved backup speed should be found when performing backup jobs containing a large number of files. Both FBackup and Backup4all also gain "Last backup size" and "Total backup size" details in the Statistics view. The updates also now show file icons based on the system file extensions in both source and restore previews.

Backup4all users also gain optimized views for Explore and Backup for jobs containing sources from an offline network share. Other network tweaks include a fix that prevents the user interface freezing when selecting a job with sources from the local area network.

Also added to the paid-for version are two new command-line parameters for the EXE setup file, namely SettingsAvailableForCurrUser (default true) and AutoStart (default false) respectively.

A number of new languages -- French, Malay, Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese Traditional and Swedish -- have been added to both new builds, while fixes include restoring the [F11] shortcut for the scheduler and ensuring the screen layout is preserved when the application is reopened.

FBackup 5.1 is available now as a freeware download (for personal and commercial use), while 4Backup4all 5.1 is available as a trial download with various licenses from Lite to Standard all available. Both require Windows XP or later.
