Summary of enhancements

Summary of bug fixes

Backup policy agent throttling

  • The classic backup schedule engine has been deprecated.
  • A new, business-hours-based scheduling engine now supports policy-based settings to the agent. 
  • Classic mode scheduling remains available
  • All existing schedules will remain unchanged. 
  • The Schedules page on the left menu pain has been renamed Backup Policies. 

With agent 2.29+ , you can access advanced backup policy schedule controls, to manage agent bandwidth settings using business hours logic. 

For complete details on how to create a new policy-based backup schedule and assign it to your protected systems, refer to Create a policy-based backup schedule.


Auto Update Best Practices

We recommend that Enable Auto Update is enabled on the Settings -> Update Manager page on each of your x360Recover devices.

We also recommend that you enable Auto-Enable Remote Assist When Upgrading so that remote access will be available to our development team should something go wrong with your upgrade.

This will ensure that your x360Recover devices are updated with the latest software enhancements in a timely fashion, and that the x360Recover Support team will have a short window of time to access and repair any troublesome devices without requiring user intervention.
