● Pause Backups on Certain Networks -- Users now have the ability to automatically pause backups when connected to selected networks or interfaces such as Wifi networks. This is particularly useful for situations where network bandwidth may be very expensive or limited (ie when tethered to a 3G hotspot)
● Pause Backups When Device Battery is Low -- Users specify a battery charge level, once a laptop's battery reaches that level, all backups will be paused. This function allows users to conserve battery power by not backing up. Backup resumes when battery power returns to the specified charge level.
● Mac Menu Bar Item -- Mac users can now monitor and control basic CrashPlan features from the menu bar. This feature is also available to Windows users.
"This update adds three of the most-requested features from our CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO users: the ability to pause backups on certain networks and when running on battery, as well as a super-convenient Mac menu bar add-on for controlling and monitoring backups," commented Mike Evangelist, Code 42's chief marketing officer. "CrashPlan has always been the most flexible solution out there, and these enhancements make that even more true."
CrashPlan is a highly recommended online backup solution for Mac users. Services cost as little as $6.00/month for unlimited backup of 10 computers or $3.00/month for one computer. You can learn more and grab the update at the link below...
