Dropbox migration; Cloud migration to premise

Nava Certus 1.2

We’ve been hard at work trying to realize our goal of making Nava Certus synonymous with cloud storage migration. If you have a request for a particular source or destination, please don’t hesitate to respond in the comments.

Full release notes available here.

Nava Certus 1.1 – Migrate from Google, File Conversion

Over the past month, we’ve been working on a few new features for Nava Certus. After a lengthy period of testing, we’re happy to finally announce Nava Certus 1.1

When migrating to Google Drive, some customers would like to have the ability to convert documents, such as MS Word, Excel, and so forth to Google Docs format. We’re enabling this feature in 1.1 and allow you granular file conversion settings.

In addition to the new features, we also fixed a number of bugs. Visit our support forum for a full version of the release notes.

As before, Nava Certus is available for free for evaluation purposes.
