Argentum Backup 2.5.

A new version of Argentum Backup is now available. If you purchased your license after December 15, 2003, you're recommended to upgrade, as this is free of charge. If you purchased your license prior to that date, you may want to look at the list of new features, and decide for yourself if you want to upgrade or not. Our upgrade policy is listed at:

This newest release 2.50 features a number of improvements and modifications. Perhaps the most notable improvement is full support for strong, WinZip 9 compatible, 128-bit and 256-bit AES symmetric encryption, to securely protect your sensitive data in Zip backup files. AES is the Advanced Encryption Standard, which is the result of a three-year competition sponsored by the U.S. Government's National Institute of Standards (NIST). AES has been approved by NIST as a Federal Information Processing Standard for use by the U.S. government, businesses, and individuals. Additional improvements include:

  • Mozilla, Thunderbird, Netscape Communicator, and IncrediMail e-mail clients are now supported in built-in e-mail template.
  • New template to back up common locations for user's multimedia files: My Pictures, My Videos and My Music.
  • A new, compact version of backup activity report.
  • Additional notable changes to the core backup engine and the scheduling agent.
  • Changes to the user interface and minor bug-fixes.

Argentum. History of innovation.

We have compiled all previous newsletter releases and historical timelines for all the time that we've been online. The compiled content is now available at:

Argentum's timeline is a valuable resource on Argentum's history, a timeline of events and highlights that make up our history. People, products, places, and highlights from nearly a decade years of innovation. Although we've been online since 1999, our company had started its public operations back in 1995, with some of the developers working under Argentum brand unofficially since 1991. Later this year we'll be celebrating our tenth anniversary with fifth and tenth anniversaries of some of our products. 2005 is going to be a great year!
