Announcing the availability of SolarWinds® Backup version 18.12

We are pleased to announce the availability of SolarWinds Backup version 18.12. This release includes several customer-requested enhancements, including support for new operating systems and applications.

New support additions/updates include:

  • Added support for OneDrive files On-Demand to align with Microsoft changes
  • Added improved support for Mac OS X Mojave (10.14.0)
    • OS X Mojave security restrictions now require applications to be added to “full disk access” in System Preferences. We’ve added a dialog to alert you, and a button that will open the System Preferences screen to the correct dialog, so you can add the Backup Manager and continue to perform successful backups.
