    Anthony got a reaction from Curtistef in Drive Bender v2.3.0.0 released   
    Release v2.3.0.0 release (2015-01-07) S.M.A.R.T now being processed by its own service (the change in the previous release failed for some users). The Windows Server Dashboard could crash if some options were selected. When performing a pool audit, the file size used to calculate pool-usage is now based on the size used on the drive, not the file size itself. This means the non pool value display in the Drive Bender Manager will be more accurate.

    Release v1.0.1.0 beta (2015-02-06) When scanning the cloud drive for files, if the sync mode was set to "Remote", the physical file was being pulled down. Now we are only pulling the details required (not the whole file). The File/Folder view now works as intended. When switching cloud drives in the client, if switched fast, an error was occurring. When adding a cloud provider and have selected "Scan for existing files", an error is returned. When creating the first cloud connection, you can now specify the default rule's sync mode (i.e. Mirror or Remote). Fixed a number of client interface issues. [k] When a file is set to Remote sync mode, real time playing of the file (i.e. caching) is not optimal. [k] The upload and download speeds have not been optimized.

    Anthony got a reaction from Robertodraf in Beta v1.0.0.7   
    Release v1.0.0.7 beta (2015-01-21)
    The client was auto detecting the local language causing a strange mix of different languages. Languages now fixed to English for the moment.
    The sync modes have been changed to be more flexible. There are now 3 options :-
        * Mirror: In this mode, a file copied to the Cloud Xtender drive will be COPIED to the cloud provider and the local and remote versions of the file is maintained.
        * Remote: In this mode, a file copied to the Cloud Xtender drive will be MOVED to the cloud provider and the local file is the removed (leaving a local tracker file).
        * Mirror -> Remote: (mode currently disabled) In this mode, a file start in mirrored mode, then after a set period, automatically switched to remote mode.
          Now in either the Remote, or Mirror modes, you can select the type of file monitoring you want.
          Local Monitoring Only: Local file changes are registered, and files are sync'd according. With this type of monitoring, any changes made on the cloud storage provider are not captured. You might use this monitoring type if               you are simply backing files etc.
          Bi-directional Monitoring: Both local and remote changes are registered and files are sync'd according. With this type of monitoring, any file changes, or new files are captured both locally and remotely. The frequency of the         remote monitoring is determined when creating the rule. Although on the surface this would be the preferred type, it does mean more requests to the cloud providers and hence, more network traffic.
    When creating a cloud connection, there is an option to scan the cloud storage and sync and existing files.
    You can scan the remote cloud folder / drives via the File/Folder by right clicking a folder (to scan the entire remote drive, right-click the root).
    [k] The files/folders view of a Cloud Xtender drive can sometimes cause a client exception, and also display multiples of the same file.

    Anthony got a reaction from Robertodraf in Uninstalling Cloud Xtender   
    Important - For beta users running Cloud Xtender on the same machine running Drive Bender v2.x
    Cloud Xtender and Drive Bender v2 share the same core driver, if you uninstall Cloud Xtender from a machine running Drive Bender, the driver is uninstalled, and can result in the Drive Bender Pool not mounting upon the reboot.
    This is not serious, it simply requires the core driver to be re-installed. To do so, run the Drive Bender "driver utility" (you can find this in the Drive Bender start menu), and select "Install Generation 5 Drivers", then reboot. If you still have issues after the driver re-install, let me know.
     
    We will be fixing this in coming beta, but in the meantime, please remember, your pool data will not be effected by this installer issue.
