    Just been reading the blog entry about the new v7 backup.

    Any idea when it's about to hit the streets?

    Also, will it finally include support for disk rotation?

    I do not have a firm date yet on the release. I'll have to check with the team in any new features related to disk rotation, but I'm not aware of any offhand. I'd be interested in your disk rotation needs though. Are you rotating NAS devices or external hard drives hooked up to an endpoint / server? Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

    At this point I need to rotate hard drives. The reason I was hoping disk rotation was on the way is because I'd read between the lines in this thread. I made the assumption that the format changes you were referring to may be those being rolled out in v7.

    Some of those changes may speed up the sync process, but I'm still waiting on word as to whether there's anything specific being added for drive rotation. Can you go into more detail about your use case for needing to use drive rotation versus performing either local + cloud hybrid backups or simply copying changed files from one NAS to the other before escorting one home at night?

    Quite a few of our client sites are in rural locations and they don't have good enough bandwidth to do imaging to the cloud so traditional disk rotation is more appropriate. Additionally, for all clients, we like to backup (less frequently) to disk so we know we have some true air gapped backups off site, we also use drive rotation for this.
