Cloud Backup Solutions supports Mac OS X Yosemite

Our Cloud Backup Solution has been upgraded to fully support backup clients on Mac OS X Yosemite, released by Apple on 16th October 2014. You may need to download legacy Java 6 (Java for OS X 2014-001) from Apple at if you do not already have this installed. The backup client will prompt you to do so, if this is the case.

All existing clients will be upgraded automatically whether they are running Mac OS X Yosemite v10.10 or not. There are a number of performance and security updates for all clients. On the server side, amongst other security updates there is a specific update to disable SSL 3.0 protocol and prevent POODLE attack.

Cloud Backup Solutions – Mac OS X Yosemite

Please note that there are known issues with the backup client running on MAC OS X Yosemite that was released last night, and we urge you to delay upgrading at least for a few days.

Today, if you upgrade your Mac to Yosemite:

  • Real-time backups will not take place
  • File changes will only back up after a file verification scan, which may take additional time and CPU
  • You may experience display issues or other unexpected behavior with the backup client and menu bar apps

To resolve these issues, an update will be released as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please let me know or send a mail to or visit
