Free XenServer Backup Tool Version 2 is OUT!

Today I’m proud to announce that the Free XenServer (Citrix Hypervisor) Backup tool version 2.0 is released. It took me a while to make time free to update the tool with feature requests and bug fixes. But it’s done. So what has changed in Version 2.0?:

Changelog V2.0:

  • Now support for network drives, enter a path like \\DOMAIN\Share at Enter backup path and the tool will mount the drive. The task user does need to have write permissions on the share.
  • Temp issue fixed, the tmp file created by the export will now be written to the backup destination instead of C drive.
  • GUI hangs on run now backup is fixed, run now backups will now be set as a windows task that runs directly. You can manage your RUN NOW tasks in the scheduled tasks window.
  • Performance improvements.

You can download the tool here from the original blog where you will also find the PowerShell script that’s the heart of the tool.

If you have any requests for me to add in version 3.0 (like incremental backups) feel free to leave it in the comment section.

If you like the tool, feel free to donate with PayPal to support the development.
