What are the major difference in features between SQL Backup 7.2 and 7.7? Also do both the versions support Windows 2012 and SQL Server 2012?

    From the release notes:

    • Upload a copy of backups to a SQL Backup Pro Hosted Storage account with the backup wizards or using the COPYTO_HOSTED keyword.
    • Track the progress of uploading backups to hosted storage from the In Progress tab and cancel the upload if required.
    • View results of copying backups to hosted storage or a network location from the Activity History and Backup Properties.
    • Manage off-site backups from the SQL Backup Pro Hosted Storage website.

    • When backing up or restoring, you can use WITH ERASEFILES_PRIMARY and ERASEFILES_SECONDARY to manage existing backup files.
    • When restoring transaction log backups, you can use WITH DELAY to specify a minimum age for backups.

    • When backing up, you can use the USEQUEUEDCOPY keyword to place backup files in the transaction log copy queue providing additional retries.
    • Allow reading of password from a text file, as an alternative to storing it in a SQL Server Agent Job.
    • Improved upload performance for backups to Hosted Storage

    • This release addresses a security vulnerability identified in SQL Backup 7.4 and 7.5.

    • Support for backing up and restoring SQL Server 2014 databases
    • SQL Backup UI and the SQBHostedStorageClient.exe now run on .NET 4 only platforms
