- Intuitive Backup summary
The inSync Client 6.0.1 user interface displays Backup and Restore on the same screen, making it a user-friendly experience for end users to easily find the actions they need to perform to back up their data or restore content. Folder names displayed under Backup Content have been made more intuitive and labels and messages across the interface have been simplified.
The following illustration displays these changes as seen on inSync Client 6.0.1.
- Updated Restore workflow
The Restore window now displays the recent snapshot instead of the entire snapshot listing. If required, the user can select the previous snapshots from the drop-down list. Also, the search capability has been moved to the center of the Restore window to allow users to search through devices and snapshots quickly.
The following illustration displays the latest snapshot details on the Restore screen.
- Enhanced Settings screen
In the inSync Client 6.0.1, the pop-up windows on the Settings screen have been updated and designed to give a seamless experience. The following illustration displays the Proxy Settings pop up window.
Improved display of folder names
On the inSync Client 6.0.1, users can now see the actual folder names on the Backup Content and Restore Snapshot screens, instead of the system path variables that are defined by the administrators in the inSync Management Console.

With this release, inSync also provides enhancements for inSync administrators to manage client devices from the inSync Management Console.
