At Thexyz we are constantly trying to improve our product and provide our users with the most feature rich, customisable and secure cloud service around.

Today we are happy to unveil version 1.14 of our desktop software for Windows and Mac OS X. In the past Thexyz Cloud has used AES-256 encryption to make sure your files can’t be compromised while they are being transferred to the cloud. Thexyz Cloud software will include a few key extra security additions to make sure that the data held in the local cache cannot be accessed, even if your computer is stolen.

The main new features in 1.14 are:

An improved settings menu

This will make it quicker and easier for you to edit the program to your needs.

Briefcase encryption

Your files will now be even safer. Any files which have been stored on your machine will be inaccessible if they are logged out of Thexyz. This stops thieves from stealing your computer and gaining access to your files.

Automatic logout 

This will make sure Thexyz is never logged in when you turns your computer on. Combining automatic logout and Briefcase encryption will make sure your files are always secure.

Improved ‘Manage Backups’ window

We have improved the interface for handling file type exceptions. This will automatically stop EXE, ISO, and temporary files from being uploaded to the cloud and will reduce the time it takes you to complete your first backup. If you do want to upload .ISO files you just need to uncheck the .ISO box in the exceptions menu. Users can also add new exceptions to the list. If you add “.avi” to the list the software will make sure no AVI movies are backed up to the cloud.

Restore is now built into the Windows and Mac client

We have now added the restore feature to the Windows client. In the past only Mac users could restore files through the normal desktop client. Windows users had to download a separate restore client from our website.
