Introducing CloudBerry Backup 2.4 for macOS & Linux

CloudBerry software for mac backup and Linux backup is receiving yet another major release. Version 2.4 features support for Alibaba Cloud Storage, long-awaited and highly-requested support for Retina displays, among others.

Support for Retina displays

One of the most anticipated and highly-requested features of release 2.4 is the support for Retina displays. All icons and pictures have been updated to look appropriately sharp, and the text from now on also looks perfectly suitable for Retina displays. Here's how the old non-Retina version compares to the new high-DPI one:

Support for Alibaba Cloud Storage

Alibaba Cloud is one of the leading Chinese cloud storage services on the market. As a result, many of our customers have requested that we implement support for it in CloudBerry Backup for macOS & Linux. So starting with version 2.4 you can back up and restore data to/from Alibaba Cloud Storage.

Show Hidden Files & Folders

Another highly-request feature is the ability to back up hidden files & folders. From now on you can choose to display hidden files & folders in the Backup Wizard by selecting the appropriate checkbox. Naturally, such files & folders can later be restored to their original locations.

Ignoring SSL Certificates

Suppose you're running a server with self-signed SSL certificates and Minio as your backup destination. To avoid backup failure, CloudBerry Backup disregards the self-signed certificates and proceeds with the backup process. In release 2.4, we've added the option to fail a backup plan if the SSL certificates on the backup destination are corrupt. You can enable the new feature in Settings, under Network.

Symlinks Management

Another handy feature in CloudBerry Backup 2.4 for macOS & Linux is comprehensive symlink management. Namely, you can now thoroughly specify how the app should treat symlinks during backup. Here are the four options to choose from:

  1. Do not back up symlinks. Symlinks will not be backed up, and original files will also not be backed up.
  2. Back up symlinks only. Symlinks will be backed up, but original files (to which symlinks point) will not be backed up.
  3. Back up original files instead of symlinks. Original files will be backed up (instead of symlinks) in the folder that contains symlinks. For example, if you have a symlink located in /Desktop that points to a file called "report.docx" in /Downloads, that file will be backed up in /Desktop.
  4. Back up original files in their original locations. Original files will be backed up instead of symlinks in the original folder (not in the folder that contains symlinks). For example, if you have a symlink located in /Desktop that points to a file called "report.docx" in /Downloads, that file will be backed up in /Downloads.
