It is here! Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE 1.1 with Windows 10 support!

Two weeks ago we’ve announced an upcoming Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE 1.1 and today I am very pleased to say it is general available! Be the first to upgrade your existing setup by downloading the newly released version from our website – and be rewarded with a number of new fancy features.

Windows 10 support

Yes, you heard it! Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE is the first solution that fully supports backing up and restoring computers running the newly released Windows 10 – just six days after it went live!

While some people say that installing the new version of the Operating System must always be performed from scratch; others vote for the simplicity of in-place upgrade procedure. Regardless of the way you choose, we believe a solid backup must be available anyway – Warning: Install Veeam Endpoint Backup NOW!

And by the way, we do not leave version 1.0 users behind – in case you want to hold off upgrading, there is an easy workaround on how to fix the “Services suddenly stopped working” error that appears after Windows upgrade.

Volume resize

This feature was heavily requested through the Veeam Community Forums and support cases – so here you go! Resizing of the volume while performing the entire computer or volume-level recovery is now fully possible in both the Veeam Recovery Media and Volume Restore Wizard, so feel free to restore your backups to smaller SSD drives, or bigger HDD.

Network settings auto configuration

We keep improving the recovery experience, so this one should make the recovery from network locations a child’s play: starting from version 1.1, Veeam Recovery Media can preserve the computer’s network settings and apply them automatically to the recovery environment.

Drivers recovery

We’ve received several requests through support team to make the restore process even more “universal” and we came to the conclusion that the recovery media needs to be have more options on handling the preserved drivers. Now, in case of experiencing BSOD after recovery to dissimilar hardware, you can disable the Recovery Media drivers from being injected into the OS during recovery, thus letting drivers from the actual backup (or standard Windows drivers) to be used.

Post backup activity prompt for an action

Seriously, nobody likes computer being accidentally shut down. Many of you are working late, so late – it may even interfere with Veeam Endpoint Backup daily schedule – and what’s more important, with the post job activity. But worry no more, as the new safety trigger will now prompt you for action before actually shutting down or putting computer into sleep:

I want this… how to upgrade?

As always, we take a staged approach with our new releases, and will start from a week or two of pilot deployments before pushing this update to well over 50,000 of the existing users.

Once we feel confident about this new version, we will publish the new build on our auto-update server, and you will soon receive the notification about the new release availability, enabling you to update your installation with a click of a button. Make sure you have “Automatically check and notify me on available updates” option at the Update tab enabled to receive the update.

However, if you are in a hurry, and want this code right now – then you are more than welcome to join the pilot by downloading Veeam Endpoint Backup 1.1 directly from our website, and run the setup manually to update your installation.

Conclusion

With or without Windows 10 support, Veeam Endpoint Backup Free is a must have backup utility. However, do not forget that the new feature set described above is just the top of an iceberg, and there are many other smaller engine enhancements and bug fixes under the hood that make this tool even more solid with this new minor release. So, we highly recommend that you update even if you do not plan on upgrading to Windows 10 any time soon!

    Unfortunately I am missing the support for users like me with TPM encryption

  • Anton Gostev says:

    What do you mean? We supported Bitlocker drive encryption since v1…

  • Karel Martens says:

    true, but with TPM is an issue reported by your engineers.

  • Anton Gostev says:

    Can you give me the support case ID where they said that please?

  • Karel Martens says:

    Sure thing: Case # 00941953

  • Dmitry Popov says:

    Hey Karel,

    According to the case details you are using file level backup mode. Can you please check if the same issue persists while using volume level backup mode? Thanks in advance.

  • Karel Martens says:

    volume level backup seems to be running fine but we can’t afford to have each machine backing up with 250GB or more.

  • Dmitry Popov says:

    Thanks and what if you enable auto unlock for the volume where these
    file reside?

  • Mircea Florin says:

    Is it possible to include encryption with password protection or something like that ? Other than that ,it is great . Also, can it be used in an enterprise company for free ? Thank you.

  • Anton Gostev says:

    Hi. Encryption is already available when using a Veeam repository as a target. This product is completely free with no limitations.

  • Mircea Florin says:

    Hello,

    Thank you for your reply . In order to set up a Veeam repository , I assume I would need an additional product , that isn’t free :) . Or am I mistaken ? I was curious whether it is possible to integrate in Endpoint Backup Free the encryption capability ?

    I do understand we are talking about a free product, but there are competitors that offer it by default in the free product . I am very satisfied with the speed and capabilities of Veeam Endpoint Backup Free, however, the only thing stopping me to use it globally is the encryption part.

    Good job for the product , thank you.

    Veeam backup repository is an “organizational entity” for storing the backup files in the flagship product Veeam Backup and Replication the #1 VM Backup for VMware and Hyper-V. If you are interested, feel free to download a trial from here: http://www.veeam.com/vm-backup-recovery-replication-software.html

    >I was curious whether it is possible to integrate in Endpoint Backup Free the encryption capability ?

    As it was said before encryption is supported for while backing up to Veeam Backup and Replication repository. Additional option for local targets is native Bitlocker support, kindly, take a look:http://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/11/bitlocker.html

  • Học Nguyễn says:

    Congratulation~! This is what I expect :D

  • Hope you like it! Feel free to jump onto our forums and tell us your stories ;-) (forums.veeam.com)

  • Marc K says:

    “Grandma’s” PC doesn’t have access to a Veeam repository. But, it does have an external hard drive that can easily be stolen.

  • Dmitry Popov says:

    Hi Marc,

    USB drive can be encrypted with Windows built-in BitLocker. You can easily use it together with Veeam Endpoint Backup :)

  • Marc K says:

    True. But BitLocker is not available in the Home edition of Windows. That’s the one “Grandma” is most likely to be running.

  • Michele says:

    Hello
    i don’t find any option to send email notification of successful or failed backups. It’s possible only in conjunction with repository of Veeam Backup and Replication software ?
    Thank you

  • Hi Michele,
    It is only possible in conjunction with a Veeam B&R Repository, however, if you are going to our forums (forums.veeam.com) you can search for a thread that includes an easy to use script from one of our customers that can solve that problem
    Cheers

  • Steve says:

    Hello all,
    I have both Win10 and win7 and installed endpoint backup on both..

    It sees C D of course NTFS but for some reason it DOES NOT see any linux ext3 or linux based multiboot thumbdrives or externals connected via USB. Im evaluating for DR and acronis and paragon both see those.. anyone else validate?

    thx
    -s

  • Hi Steve,

    Yes, we can’t protect any linux extensions. We also don’t protect volumes on external drives. These are good asks so feel free to go to our forums (forums.veeam.com) and put those as feature requests.
    Thx,
    Mike

  • Steve says:

    MIke,

  • Jack Ting says:

    Hi all,

    I have Win10 server @ on-premise. Is it support migrate to Azure? Thanks.

  • Hi Jack,

    If you backup your windows 10 machine with Veeam Endpoint Backup and then use our DR2MA feature (https://www.veeam.com/blog/new-feature-announcement-direct-restore-to-azure.html) you can do this
    Mike
