New and Updated Features

New and updated features in MBS desktop client

Enhanced Hybrid Backup

The highlight of release 5.9.4 is unquestionably the modifications made to the way Hybrid Backup manages the dependency between local and cloud files. Namely, local and cloud files no longer form a dependency relationship and thus can be managed independently from each other. This enables more flexible modification of the existing Hybrid Backup plans and also fixes the inefficiencies of the previous implementation.

One-Click Update

The last noteworthy feature of release 5.9.4 is the ability to update MediBackup Windows client with a single click. From now on, whenever you attempt to check for updates, MediBackup Windows client will prompt you to download and install the new version automatically. That way you don’t need to go through the hassle of downloading the installer from our website and following through the installation wizard.
