Today Anton Gostev has published a great news for all Endpoint lovers. Is available the Release Candidate with these features:


  • Backup directly into Veeam backup repositories
  • Full support for Bitlocker drive encryption on backup and restore

  • “When backup target is connected” event (former “On storage attach” event) now supports both USB drives and remote storage (triggers when you connect to a network from which your remote backup target is reachable)
  • Metered connections are now detected and will not be used to perform backup to remote targets
  • More smart way of handling retries (both in scheduler and UI).
  • Customizable backup destination folder
  • Support for rotated USB drives
  • Backup is automatically prevented from starting when a device is running off battery and battery level is less than 20%
