** Hi there,

We are writing to inform you of the upcoming closure of our application, effective Nov 1st 2023. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cease operations and shut down the application.

Please be assured that we are committed to assisting you with this transition. All customer data will be accessible for export until Nov 1st 2023, and our customer support team will be available to help answer any questions or concerns you may have.

In the forthcoming weeks, as a part of the closure process, BackupSheep is committed to giving back to the community. We will be open-sourcing our application and tools, allowing individuals and organizations to benefit from the technology that powered BackupSheep's services. The code and related tools will be published on GitHub, free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute. This initiative ensures that, despite the end of BackupSheep’s operational journey, its technological innovations will continue to serve and contribute to the tech community and the broader public. Users and developers are encouraged to stay tuned for further announcements regarding the release of BackupSheep’s open-source tools on GitHub.

BackupSheep will not be continuing its services under any other name or domain, and there are no plans to partner with other companies in the future. This closure is final.

If you encounter any questions, please reach out to our support team at support@backupsheep.com **
