Quick text file previews now in the BackupBob Web Portal

With BackupBob you can use built in web applications to view and edit files straight from your web browser. This makes it easy to work remotely, or on other people’s PCs. It doesn’t matter if they don’t have an office suite, or don’t have your favourite photo editing package – with BackupBob you can do it all online. However for some file types – like text files – these applications are overkill, which is why we’ve today rolled out our simple text file preview.

With the new text file preview, common text file types are displayed right from the web portal when you open the file.

And for developers, there’s even syntax highlighting for common code files, making it easy to check that JavaScript file you’ve got in your backups,

We currently support previews for text files up to 5MB – files over 5MB will  not be displayed.

We would love to get your feedback on the new feature. Are there any text file types that you use which we’ve missed?
