Very nice, thank you for posting. I especially welcome the ability to pause jobs while they're running.

Is this a free or paid upgrade for 3.x users, please? (The upgrade page on your site says to visit tomorrow, the same it said yesterday smiley Naturally, I wouldn't like my registered version to revert to a 30-day trial.)

I settled on Backup4All abut two years ago, having tested most if not all of the alternatives discussed here on DC, and it has not failed me once. I still have a wishlist though - is it OK to post feature suggestions here?

We're working on the update system and it will be available in about 1 hour. However the upgrade from previous versions is not free, unless you bought it in the last three months (it seems you have it registered since 2 years ago).

As for the suggestions, please send them to support[at]backup4all[dot]com.

Also, if you have Backup4all 3 registered and installed on your computer, when you download and install Backup4all 4 that one will be installed separately. So you can still have Backup4all 3 running and registered, while testing Backup4all 4 (30-day trial available). However, please note that if you import your backup jobs from Backup4all 3 to Backup4all 4, you won't be able to use them again in Backup4all 3.

I bought Backup4All in late July of this year.   Would I qualify for a free update?

Inputted the key into the upgrade form on the site but it said it would cost $19.98.

Hi,
Yes you do qualify, please send an email to sales[at]backup4all[dot]com with your registration name/email and key. They will send you back a new key. We're going to send an email to all users that qualify for a free upgrade, but this way you can obtain it faster. Thank you.

FYI:

Quote from: support@backup4all
We do not recommend to use Backup4all in order to backup system files / installed software.
We encourage users to use it only for their own work: files and folders.
