6th September 2019: SyncBackPro V9 BETA adds support for Google Photos

In July, Google removed access to Google Photos from Google Drive. This stopped SyncBackPro from being able to make a backup of files stored in Google Photos. We're happy to announce that we've now added support for making backups of files stored on Google Photos to SyncBackPro V9. It's currently in BETA and we are looking for user feedback. You can download the SyncBackPro V9 BETA version from our beta downloads page.

For more details read our Knowledge Base Article SyncBackPro/SE Upgrades Explained.

For a brief list of what's new in V9 see the list below.

  SyncBack V9 Highlights

  • Completely new modern and clean user interface with an optional dark mode. All the graphics have been changed. Care has been taken to simplify and modernize the interface but keeping it familiar to users of older versions.
  • Per-monitor DPI scaling, so windows are scaled depending on the monitor they are on. The default font is now larger, and the same font as used in Windows 10.
  • Delta-copy versioning when copying files from one file system to another. Only the changes between files are stored, which greatly reduces disk space for large files such as virtual machines, databases, etc.
  • SyncBackPro includes support for more cloud services: OVH, hubiC, WebDAV and Egnyte.
  • Existing cloud support has been further improved: Uses new Azure REST API, so can upload larger files (4.75 TB), supports restoring files archived in Azure, S3 Storage Class and new Azure Blob Tier (previously could only set S3 Storage class, but now can do it with Azure), supports One Zone-Infrequent Access and Intelligent Tiering storage classes on Amazon S3, can now use Service Account Private Key files with Google Storage, Dropbox API updated, Backblaze B2 API updated and can now use Bing speech, so native language speech supported.
  • Two new FTP/FTPS engines and one new SFTP engine added for improved FTP server compatibility. Supports new faster scanning method in CompleteFTP (requires V12.1.0 or newer).
  • Delta-copy (over the network) upload and download to Touch (Windows only).
  • Parallel file multi-zip (when copying to or from internal/external drive, network share, etc.), Parallel local file deletes (internal/external drive, network share, etc.) and Parallel cloud file uploads and downloads: S3, Azure, Egnyte, Backblaze B2, Rackspace/OpenStack and Google Storage (if using private key).
  • SyncBack Monitor: A new Android app which you can use to stop, start, pause and resume profiles running on your computer (on the same local network)
  • For a complete list of what's new in V9, see our V9 release page.

23rd August 2019: Amazon Drive is no longer available

Starting August 2019, Amazon has stopped all 3rd party access to their Amazon Drive service (not to be confused with Amazon S3). This means SyncBackPro (and all other non-Amazon software) is unable to login to the service or upload/download files to and from it. If you have files on Amazon Drive you will need to use their web interface, or the Amazon Photos Desktop App, to retrieve your files. For the next release of SyncBackPro (V9 and V8), the Amazon Drive functionality will be removed.
