Download the full repository from BackHub

You can now download the full repository including all branches directly from BackHub.

Until now it was only possible to download a checkout of the latest commit in your master branch as a zip file. However, many users found it irritating that the download contains only files from one branch and thought the backup was incomplete.

That’s why we have changed things and it is now possible to download the complete repository directly from BackHub. That comes in handy if you don’t want to restore the complete repository back to GitHub but still want to work with the repository on your local machine or transfer it to another service.

Another minor thing we’ve changed is the filename of the downloaded zip file. It’s now using the repository’s name as a filename.

In future we are planning to support cloning directly from BackHub servers via https.
