CloudPull 2.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Golden Hill Software has released version 2.1.1 of its CloudPull Google-data backup application, which fixes a critical bug that prevented the app from backing up a small number of Gmail messages and from reporting the failure. John Brayton of Golden Hill Software apologizes for this lapse in the release notes, writing that while the bug affected less than 1 percent of messages, “a bug that provides a false sense of security with regard to the backup status is very serious.” After the update is installed, CloudPull searches for bad message backups in the mail backup repository, deletes the message backup and marks it as failed, and then backs that message up again (if it’s still present in Gmail). As a result of this process, the first backup cycle after updating may take a few hours. ($24.99 new, free update, 7.6 MB)
