inSync Client v6.7.0 for inSync Cloud

Committed to delivering an enhanced product experience, we are happy to announce the availability of inSync Client v6.7.0 for inSync Cloud.

Upgrade to inSync Client v6.7.0 on macOS is supported only from inSync Client v6.5.x.  If your device is running on inSync Client version older than v6.5.0 on macOS, please upgrade to inSync Client v6.5.x. See Upgrade the inSync Client for upgrade steps.

The following features are available with this release, dated August 12, 2020:


Enhanced Restore UI for increased visibility and actionable insights

The new inSync restore UI now provides additional details about the restore progress, time elapsed, and incomplete or failed restore responses. Such actionable insights help you to quickly understand and address simple issues with minimal involvement of inSync administrators.


Capability to define MIME types

We have introduced the option to backup data based on file MIME types to ensure that you do not miss out on backing up critical data. 

If your inSync administrator has defined file inclusions using MIME types for backup and provided you permissions to add folders for backup, you can now configure additional folders for backup using file MIME types.

Enhanced settings for inSync notifications

You can now select from a range of inSync notifications to get inSync notifications for all inSync activities or just the critical ones requiring your immediate attention.


To learn more about notifications, see Configure inSync notifications

Enhanced preferences to allow and restrict networks

You can now get precise control over allowing inSync backups only on preferred networks and restricting backups when you are connected through metered networks. Also, to ensure you get the required clarity, the enhanced inSync Client interface displays the network settings configured by your inSync administrator.


To learn more about network settings, see Allow and block specific networks.
