This is great news for users with large websites or slow (shared) servers.

- Option to create custom backup profiles
- Option to backup specific directories
- Profile can auto-exclude media, themes, and/or plugins directory
Performance Boost for Stash Live
In version 7.0, iThemes introduced a new real-time WordPress backup system called Stash Live. It can now handle much larger sites with less usage of resources.
Stash Live is available for free for all BackupBuddy customers.
ImportBuddy is a BackupBuddy tool which allows you to move WordPress sites to a new host and domain. Now you can reset forgotten passwords and update Search Engine Visibility options.
With the deployment feature you can push and pull changes from a WordPress staging site to a live site. In BackupBuddy 8.0, you are able to preview what will be transferred during deployment.
