New Backblaze version is available

We’re releasing an update today for Backblaze Cloud Backup: version 7.0.1! This release comes with improvements to our Inherit Backup State feature, and some enhancements to the Mac and Windows applications.

What’s New For Windows & Macintosh:

  • Inherit Backup State
    • Has been rewritten to increase the upper thresholds for inheriting a backup state. In the past, some edge-cases existed where log files were too large to be inherited, resulting in a failure. This has now been fixed.
    • The process has also been cleaned up to remove unnecessary older files, which should result in better performance and less system resource usage.
  • .Bzvol Enhancements
    • Fixed a bug which sometimes showed duplicate volume listings in the apps, which led to confusion.
    • Fixed a bug with .Bzvol which resulted in no files appearing to be selected in some cases.
  • Minor security enhancements and improvements to logging.
