PC-Mac-Net FileShare v6.1 Adds Multi-Destination Encrypted Network Backup for Windows, MacOS X and Linux

Adelaide, Australia (PRWEB) August 1, 2006

Lava Software is now shipping PC-Mac-Net FileShare v6.1, a fast and efficient file sharing, data backup and remote media player product. New backup features provide simple and secure file backup through a unique mixture of data encryption, multi-destination storage of backup data on networked computers, and Clues2Key(TM) encryption key recovery. Typical applications include home and office file backups, automatic daily backups of laptops to a home server when users return home, and secure remote backup of laptops via Wi-Fi when on the road. Versions are available for Windows, MacOS X, MacOS Classic and Linux.

This new version offers incremental backup to local hard disk, incremental backup over LAN or Internet to one or more destination computers (thus providing on and offsite redundancy), up to 256-bit AES encryption of remotely stored backup files, email notification of backup plan execution, pre-backup and post-backup script support, automatic MD5 digital signature verification of backup files to ensure file integrity, automatic launch on startup/login, queuing of automatic backups when offline, greatly increased file backup speed, significantly reduced CPU utilization, an activity list showing all backups and restores, and support for inexpensive Linux-based home backup/media servers. It is a free upgrade for all users.

On all platforms, backup files which are subsequently restored are identical to the original backed up file, including creation and modification dates, MacOS type/creator information, etc. File contents are also verified by automatic MD5 digital signature checks, ensuring no corruption has occurred in any stage of storage or transmission. During backups to networked Windows and Linux computers, MacOS files with data and resource forks are correctly stored. Files can be encrypted using standard literal hexadecimal keys, or using an innovative new encryption key system called Clues2Key(TM), which allows secure data recovery even if the original encryption key is lost.

The free Lite Edition of PC-Mac-Net FileShare can be downloaded now from Prices for the Standard and Professional Editions start at USD14.95 per computer, with discounts for larger pack sizes. The Lite Edition has file transfer size, data backup and media playback limits, and only allows 3 users per workgroup. The MacOS Classic version offers file transfer and remote folder sync only. Integration of PC-Mac-Net FileShare is available to Internet storage service providers, ISPs and ISVs. VARs and affiliates welcomed.
