Turn off your Anti-virus software and you Gmail backup will be speedy!

A tip for Gmail Keeper users:

When doing the backup, the current version of Gmail Keeper saves each email as an individual .eml file to a temporary disk folder, before moving them to the final .zip archive – so that means a lot of small files being created and deleted.

If you have an AV software monitoring your disk in real-time, it might significantly slow down the backup process. try temporarily disable the real-time protection option (if luckily there is a such option).

BTW, some reported strange problems, such as failing to compress the .eml files, etc, are also caused by the real-time file protection of the AV software.

PS: I’m behind my schedule of developing the new version of Gmail Keeper, sorry…


Upcoming: No more backup file size limit!

For those of you who who has a large amount of emails in your Gmail or Google Apps account, you must have fed up with the 65, 535 files or 4GB file size limit of the backup archives in the current version of Gmail Keeper.

The good news is this limit has been removed in the soon-to-be-released version of Gmail Keeper!

PS: The original development plan for Gmail Keeper has changed, I’ll explain when the new version of this Gmail and Google Apps backup software is ready.


Gmail Keeper doesn’t change the ‘read’ flag of your emails in Gmail

Many people sends in emails asking if Gmail Keeper would change the ‘unread’ status of the emails in Gmail, and the answer is:

Gmail Keeper does not change the ‘read/unread’ flag of the emails in your Gmail/Goolge Apps account.

As a email backup software dedicated for Gmail, that’s been taken into account, though it’s a problem with the earlier versions.
