TAIPEI, Taiwan - QNAP today announced a new version of QBack, the popular NAS backup application provided free to QNAP Turbo NAS customers. New Version 2.1 of QBack features an intuitive wizard interface, VSS support, external drive encryption, and backups to multiple destinations.

The newly released QBack V2.1 allows Windows users to easily back up local data to the Turbo NAS with just a few clicks in the new user-friendly wizard interface.
