The developers of Akeeba Backup just released a critical update, so read the announcement and follow the link below:
We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Akeeba Backup 3.2.6, the latest version of our acclaimed backup component for Joomla! 1.5 and 1.6 web sites.
IMPORTANT! THIS IS CONSIDERED A CRITICAL UPDATE; ALL USERS ARE REQUESTED TO UPDATE
We discovered that version 3.2.5 had a major bug affecting all post-processing engines (cloud storage, sent to email, upload to remote FTP). More specificaly, if the “Process each archive part immediately” option was not selected, only the last archive part of a multi-part archive would be transferred to the remote location. This caused the uploaded backups to be partial and non-restorable. Please upgrade to 3.2.6 immediately as it addresses this issue.
