Version 1.5 Questions

Greetings!:

Two questions:

1) Cryptolocker protection:
Is there a way to turn off this feature? On many clients, what we do is run them as limited users, then configure the external drives to be only accessible as the Administrator. As such, even if a limited user is infected with Cryptolocker or a variant the limited user will not have rights to the backup hard drives. This is also useful in scenarios where hard drives are swapped out once a week vs. every day.

2) Backup external hard drives to another hard drive. Any ETA on this feature?

Thank you again!

Hello Harry,

CryptoLocker protection feature is available for ‘When backup storage is connected backup’ event only and is not enabled by default. Unfortunately, I can’t provide you any ETA but can assure that backup of the external devices is in the ‘priority’ list.
