    Can somebody please explain what this is? Why is it still experimental when its been there for a while?

    Is it a faster backup? I have a problem at the moment where 200 accounts take 7 hours to backup.

    The Experimental backup tool is not faster than the standard tool, it merely requires few resources to run.

    The Experimental distinction is to note people should exercise extra caution when using the tool.

    The Experimental distinction will be removed once we are satisfied with the overall quality of the tool in comparison with the pre-existing tool. Since the tool involves data integrity, it must adhere to very high quality standards before leaving Experimental.

    Its inclusion in the product allows customers to use and test its functionality, and provide feedback on it.

    Can you give some details about how exactly the experimental tool is different from the traditional one?
