New Block Level Backup options for advanced mode.

CloudBerry Backup has been updated to version 2.5 for both Windows Home Server and Windows Home Server 2011. The big news with version 2.4, in case you missed it, was the ability to perform a differential backup on files of any size — this is a major feature that will shorten backup times and help keep the transaction costs with your cloud backup provider at a minimum. Now with version 2.5 the features keep on coming with local backups that can take full advantage of advanced mode features including block level backup, encryption, compression and versioning.

Block level backup makes it possible to backup large files incrementally whereas previously an entire file needed to be uploaded when it changed. Only the portions of a file that has changed are backed up. This option is a welcome addition to the CloudBerry product and makes it practical to include traditionally large files like Exchange PSTs, database files, virtual machine images and other large files that may change frequently in your CloudBerry backup plan.

NOTE: Before you get started with the new Block Level Backup capabilities I highly recommend you read the article on the publishers website to better understand how the advanced backup capabilities work.

I'm a technology enthusiast who loves to tinker on the weekends. My house is filled with tech, including a WHS v1 used for general file storage and DVD/BD streaming to the various XBOX and Windows 7 receivers around my home. I also play around with home automation using an ISY 99i and various Smarthome Insteon plugs and switches. There never seems to be enough time on the weekends to get to everything on my list. :-)
