Version History

June 21, 20162.61Major Update

This update resolves the issue with failure to read storage files after the latest Microsoft Outlook 2016 update. Some other have also been fixed.

Issues Fixed

Safe PST Backup Issues:

  • Application would fail to read Outlook Storage files causing backup failures and Options dialog not showing storage files in the “Files and Folders” tab after the latest Microsoft Outlook 2016 updates (Enterprise edition only).
  • In some cases, automatic backup schedule settings would not show correctly in the Options dialog for Daily, Weekly and Monthly settings.
  • The command prompt tool spbCmdRun.exe was crashing in some cases.
  • The option to switch off the attempt to start backup automatically after it was missed (“AttemptBackupWhenMissed” tag) was working in the Free edition.

April 14, 20162.60Major Update

This version introduces new functionality to automatically run backup if it was missed and fixes related to IMAP and password protected storage files.

Functional Updates

  • Backup is automatically performed now if the scheduled time was missed. Now in the case when backup was missed at the scheduled time with daily, weekly or monthly settings, due to the application not running or computer shut down during that time, it will be performed once the application starts. The new parameter - <attemptbackupwhenmissed> - can now be used in the configuration file to disable this functionality when needed.

Issues Fixed

Safe PST Backup Issues:

  • In some scenarios the application would crash or backup would fail during the backup of IMAP account type storage file.
  • When backup was configured for password protected files, in some cases a new backup file was created after each backup attempt if Outlook was restarted, resulting in multiplication of backup files in the backup location.
  • In some scenarios, if backup was configured for Exchange account type storage file, an error would be logged in the error log file stating that the file had changed since the last running of Microsoft Outlook.

Admin Tool issues:

  • In some scenarios, the activation of clients would fail stating that there were no available licenses, although the Admin Tool would show that not all licenses were used.
  • When clicking “Get Status Now” for multiple selected devices in Admin Tool, the “Unhandled exception” error would be displayed.

The latest Safe PST Backup includes some functional updates such as connection test process improvement. Also, a number of issues have been fixed in this release, particularly to improve working with PST files.

Functional Updates

  • Connection test process improved. Some functional updates have been made to connection test to improve the detection of low network connection in some specific scenarios.
  • Username added to the log files name. Now all log file names have Windows username as well, for better identification.

Issues Fixed

Safe PST Backup Issues:

  • The issue when the “Unknown Publisher” warning was shown after download due to an old unsupported digital certificate in installation files has been fixed.

February 4, 20162.52Major Update

Many various issues have been fixed in this release, including some related to Safe PST Backup client application communication with Monitoring Module.

  • Ability to test the configured SMTP server in Admin Tool. Now the SMTP server settings can be tested from Admin Tool in order to make sure the email reports would be sent without issues.

Issues Fixed

Safe PST Backup Issues:

  • The next automatic backup date in some cases would be incorrectly set to the previous year.
  • By default, if the destination folder was not available during the backup attempt, the application would check its availability constantly without limit, not 3 times only, as was stated in “DestinationFolderCheck” parameter description.
  • When a history backup file was created, an incorrect date and time was used for its naming – the latest backup time instead of the actual backup time related to the file.
  • The application would not start in case the location configured in “DetailLogPath” parameter was not valid.
  • The application would close unexpectedly in case multiple profiles were configured and some of them contain no valid backup destination location.

  • The device statuses were not shown as “Online” instantly after activation of Monitoring Service.

  • If Admin Tool was running, it would crash during restart / shut down of the computer.
  • In case the backup was never yet performed for the workstation, the date 1/1/0001 would be sent by Monitoring Service in the email report.
  • The "Cancel" button in the "Add Server" dialog in Admin Tool was not closing it in some cases.
  • Some minor issues have been fixed in the Admin Tool interface.

Functional Updates

  • Full support of the latest version of Microsoft Outlook 2016. All issues and crashes related to Outlook 2016 version have been eliminated.

Issues Fixed

Safe PST Backup Issues:

  • Backup files were duplicating constantly in backup location in some configuration scenarios when the “SourcePath” parameter was used.
  • In some scenarios when Windows Shadow Copy service was used to make the first backup, it would constantly fail, creating “.corrupted” files in backup location.

  • If first backup of password-protected PST file was performed when Outlook was running, the next backup, with Outlook closed, would fail without asking the password.
  • In case the “CreatePST” parameter was set to False, the file with “.corrupted” extension was created after each backup of the new Outlook data file.
  • The next scheduled backup date was shown incorrectly in some cases when the “Daily” or “Weekly” parameter value was provided in the configuration file without actual time.
  • With the Profile Management mode enabled, the new profiles created in Profiles Management panel were not saved in some cases.
  • When using more than one backup profile (when Profile Management mode is enabled), only the first profile backup was performed.
  • If “&” symbol was used in profile name, all configuration file settings were replaced by empty default settings.
  • When the “UseMonitoringServiceActivation” parameter was used, the client switched to the “administration” mode.
  • When email reports to administrator about some backup failures were disabled with the “FailuresLimit” parameter set to “0”, they were sent anyway.
  • With the “DestinationFolderCheckInterval” parameter set to “0”, the check was not disabled and was performed constantly instead.
  • It was possible to open Outlook Folder selection dialog in the Free edition.
  • When trying to open the application from “Start” or desktop shortcut when the application is already running, the main window could be shown even when the “HideGUI” parameter was set to “True”.
  • Automatic truncation of error logs has been implemented correctly with the “TrancateLogsTo” parameter.
  • The Help button for “Profile Management” would open an incorrect web help link.
